This document (linked above) contains the ODOT Business Plan for State Fiscal Years 2004 and 2005. The Business Plan is a required biennial document the department must file with the Ohio General Assembly under the state law which created ODOT’s Career Professional Service. The Business Plan represents the underlying objectives the department’s management team are to accomplish in the biennium. From the Business Plan come the action plans for members of ODOT’s Career Professional Service.
This document, however, represents more than a two-year update. It also includes an update to the department’s strategic vision. A senior-level ODOT team reviewed the Mission, Vision, Values, Goals and Strategic Initiatives in light of major, recent developments since the last Business Plan. Those developments were Gov. Taft’s Jobs and Progress Plan and the pending update of Access Ohio, ODOT’s federally required long-range plan. Both developments build upon the accomplishment of ODOT’s past strategic planning efforts and set a course for new efforts through 2015.
With the adoption of this Business Plan, the department is restating its Mission, Vision, Values and Goals from 2000 and adopting a new set of annual Strategic Initiatives. The leadership team:
Retained the ODOT Mission as written, believing it still represents ODOT’s mission;
The Vision and Values were combined and updated to reflect past accomplishments, current challenges and future aspirations;
The Goals were significantly updated to reflect a greater emphasis on safety, system maintenance, capacity expansion and operational efficiency;
The Strategic Initiatives were updated for the next two years.
The Business Plan and Strategic Initiatives set ODOT’s short-term focus for 2004 and 2005. The 2004-2005 efforts represent the first two years of Gov. Taft’s Jobs and Progress Plan, which sets goals through 2015. In turn, the Jobs and Progress Plan represents the first 12 years of Access Ohio, the 30-year plan. Underlying them all, is the Organizational Performance Index which serves as ODOT’s “dashboard” to lead all areas of the department to support the Mission, Values, Goals and Strategic Initiatives every day.
