The Strategic Planning Division is now Organizational Development.  Why the change?  Our range of services has expanded so much from the initial focus, that “strategic planning” was no longer an accurate reflection of our system-wide focus on organizational development.  In addition to facilitation of ADE’s Strategic Planning process and coordination of the Governor’s Office of Strategic Planning and Budgeting (OSPB) annual reporting, our growing range of services now includes:

    • Annual Internal/External Customer Surveys (and Employee Satisfaction Survey)
    • Arizona College and Career Ready Standards (AZCCRS) data collection, surveys and reporting support
    • Leadership Development
    • Staff Development Classes
    • Process/procedures development/streamlining
    • Division/Section/Unit meeting & problem-solving facilitation
    • Consulting support (including teambuilding, customized training sessions on a variety of topics)
    • Project team facilitation
    • Co-facilitation of Work Culture Team


To drive and champion achievement of the ADE vision by providing collaborative, meaningful support to all Units and programs, resulting in their ability to effectively and efficiently contribute to the excellent education of Arizona’s students
