In a comprehensive assessment of the current situation (based, for example, on a financial comparison with other provinces, exploratory talks with opinion leaders in and outside the provincial administration), the positive starting position was confirmed throughout.

In addition, based on a task-reformthe potential for change was examined, and around 60 packages of measures were derived, which in turn were broken down into several individual steps in some cases. The expert group processed these accordingly and supplemented them with  specific recommendations for implementation and summarized them in a published report, which is now being successively implemented.
