Strategic Planning

Mission

The primary purpose of an organization and for whom it performs it.

Core Values

The values and philosophy of an organization that guide the behavior and decisions of its members. The core values constitute the organization’s value system.

Goals

Long-range performance targets that are consistent with the mission, usually requiring a commitment of resources towards the initiatives critical to goal achievement. Goal achievement is required for an organization to realize its vision.

Strategies

The plans for how organizational goals will be achieved.

Performance Measures

Measurable commitments which indicate desired performance levels for initiatives that contribute to the achievement of one or more goals. Each performance measure has an established baseline from which progress is measured.

Core values guide DoDEA’s internal and external conduct and relationships. Our core values clarify what we stand for and believe in. All that we do is carried out with these core values in mind.
