The Oregon Department of Energy is developing a strategic plan that will focus on the energy programs and issues that are most important to Oregonians.
The process will help us:
- Define our organizational values and improve internal operations to shape how we work together and serve our mission
- Clearly prioritize and define ODOE's work, which can also help to build a better understanding from – and stronger collaboration with – stakeholders
- Measure progress and strengthen alignment between agency goals, programs, and budget.
We have completed Phase 1 (the “Clarity Phase”) of our strategic
Special thanks to those who gave us input in our October 2019
survey, and those who participated in interviews and focus groups with Coraggio
Group. We also appreciate the thoughtful feedback from our Energy Advisory Work Group
. Coraggio Group heard from
1,052 survey respondents, 30 interviews, and 12 focus groups, and helped ODOE
understand several themes from this feedback, including unalignment on the
state’s energy priorities, a need to build awareness of ODOE’s work, and that
past issues impede the agency’s work but that recent changes and progress are
evident. ODOE used this input and insights to develop the “Clarity” elements of
the strategic plan:
- Vision: what is the idea future state we are trying to create?
- Mission: what is our purpose? What are we here to make happen?
- Values: what are the fundamental beliefs that shape how we work together and serve our mission?
- Reputation: what do we want to be known for? What is the enduring perception or emotion that describes the total experience of our organization?
- Position: what unique and sustainable value do we deliver, where do we deliver, and for whom?
Key Clarity elements of our strategic plan – vision, mission, values, and position – are posted here
We will be diving into Phase 2 of our Strategic Planning Process this
summer to develop the “Strategy Elements” of our Strategic Plan:
- Strategic Imperatives: what must be accomplished over the planning horizon?
- Objectives: how will we measure success?
- Initiatives: what collective actions do we need to take that are transformative in nature?
