High Impact Projects

High Impact Projects (HIPs)

As part of RMP’s work, we are launching High Impact Projects (HIPs) with clear start and end dates that align to the strategies. HIPs will be the first step in achieving RMP’s Shared Regional Target: to ensure 71,000 more young people (up to age 35) are achieving the key milestones we have identified along their journey to economic and social mobility. 

 

What Are HIPs?

As part of this work, we are launching High Impact Projects (HIPs) with clear start and end dates that align to the priorities.

HIPs, or High Impact Plans, are crafted to provide a clear roadmap for achieving significant goals. They commence with smaller, manageable targets that serve as stepping stones toward accomplishing the overarching objectives.

Partners come together on Collaborative Action Networks (aka project teams) that are aligned to one or more High Impact Projects (HIPs) and follow the continuous improvement process to set goals, measure progress, and make adjustments in real time as needed to reach targets.

Not your Granddaddy’s Projects…. HIPs are multifaceted projects designed to catalyze systemic and policy change while simultaneously targeting behaviors, actions, programs, and strategies. 

  • They are crafted to tackle the root causes or underlying factors behind the challenges our community is experiencing. 
  • Our primary objective is to make substantial and meaningful transformations within these systems.
  • We are aiming to foster sustainable impact and change.

These projects are designed to impact one or more of the RMP Milestones AND Metrics for Success (Cradle to Career Outcomes).

These releases will include detailed project plans that include the following: 

  • Specific challenges the project intends to address 
  • Focus of the project 
  • Initial targets and how they tie into cradle to career outcome level impact
  • Timelines and Milestones 
  • Key Driver visualization of what factors exist, how much influence they have on the problem the HIP is working to address 
  • Who is Engaged 
  • Budget
  • Calls to Action 
  • The long term community investments required to reach the project’s ultimate goal and the return on investment for the community
  • What funding is “unlockable” to support the project. (What funding exists that is not currently being accessed or optimized and how it could be leveraged to support this project).

Concise summaries of each project will be included in the appendix of the strategic plan.  Additionally, we will be sharing community wide status updates on projects ongoing. 


HIPs Slated to Launch in 2024

As projects are launched you will be able to find more detailed information on them on our site, use the link below to check out the “Increasing Learning at Work” page to see what this will look like.

Milestones AND Metrics for Success (Cradle to Career Outcomes)

The following milestones are critical for individuals to meet along their journey to economic and social mobility. These milestones double as the metrics our network uses to tell us if someone is on the path to being economically and socially mobile. Each HIP is designed to impact one or multiple of the metrics below:

These are not the only metrics that matter across communities; there are many additional factors that impact a young person’s ability to experience upward economic mobility, which we continue to track through the RMP Scorecard
