Welcome to the Hawaii State
Judiciary Strategic Planning website!

In October 2011, Hawaii Supreme Court Chief Justice Mark Recktenwald announced the creation of a Judiciary Strategic Planning Committee, consisting of twenty-five Judiciary employees tasked to envision the role and operation of the Judiciary over the remainder of this decade and to develop proposals to achieve that vision. The Committee will present its recommendations to the Chief Justice by the end of this year.

The objective of the planning process is to develop a report with concrete findings and recommendations on the preferred vision of the Judiciary which will be used as the foundation for the Judiciary’s planning document to be entitled: Hawai’i Judiciary 20/20: Our Vision. The strategic planning document must be (a) consistent with the current mission of the Judiciary (i.e., “…to administer justice in an impartial, efficient, and accessible manner in accordance with law.”); (b) consistent with the Judiciary’s current organizational structure and management culture; and (c) responsive to quantifiable social, demographic, economic, legal, and technological changes in the State.

The strategic planning process is designed to maximize stakeholder input. Your thoughts about how the Judiciary might evolve over the decade would be most welcome. If it is convenient for you, we would greatly appreciate 15 minutes of your time to complete an E-Survey by clicking on the blue bar below.
