Hi John,

Yes, the 2010-11 plan is rooted in the strategy.  We're wrapping it up in the office today -- it goes to the Board tonight, and, post-approval, will be published within a few weeks. Maybe I can do IRC office hours once it's published -- it'd be a good meaty topic :-)

Where is this stated?

Who decides what has the highest impact?

From the 2009-10 Annual Plan and it's FAQ[1], we see that strategy
development (the "five year plan"), outreach and communications were
key areas of investment.

I assume we can expect a new Annual Plan shortly, which will outline
the investment strategy for 2010 and 2011.  Will it be based on the
"Emerging strategic priorities" page on the strategy wiki?
