A Guide for Strategic Planning
The 2003 Forestry Program for Oregon as a guide for strategic planning

The Forestry Program for Oregon is the Board of Forestry´s framework for strategic planning.

The board will direct the Department of Forestry to complete a comprehensive, iterative strategic planning effort consistent with the actions listed in the 2003 Forestry Program for Oregon. The Board of Forestry intends that its strategic plan and the department´s strategic plan be fully integrated and that these plans also lead to better integration of Department of Forestry programs (Figure 3). This strategic planning effort is designed to help Oregonians achieve the "triple bottom line" of sustainable environmental, economic, and social performance.
Strategic planning strengthens the board´s ability to be an effective policy-maker in partnership with all Oregonians. The primary purposes of our strategic planning are to: 
  • Clearly define and communicate (internally and externally) what the Board of Forestry is and what it does;
  • Establish the board´s fundamental guiding values and priorities;
  • Direct the department in implementation of the Board of Forestry strategies and actions in the Forestry Program for Oregon;
  • Focus resources and efforts on the most important issues and priorities that will promote and create the desired future;
  • Measure and report performance (both successes and setbacks); and
  • Provide an improvement cycle that allows both the board and the department to make informed changes when necessary.
