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.
Coraggio Group​, based in Portland, is serving as our consultant.

We have completed Phase 1 (the “Clarity Phase”) of our strategic planning process. 

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?
