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)
      • 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



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