The ICANN CEO has also posted his comments on the Strategic Plan. He writes:

The ICANN meeting in Seoul was my first meeting as CEO, and coincided with the kickoff of the ICANN Strategic planning process, an essential basis for ICANN’s operational and budget planning process. Based on my experience with other organizations and Boards, I was interested in taking the planning processes of past years, and evolving it into an approach that identified key strategic focus areas that captured ICANN’s mission and mandate, namely:

  • DNS stability and security;
  • Consumer choice, competition and innovation;
  • IANA and core operations and
  • A healthy Internet eco-system.
