Our Strategic Initiatives

The Strategic Initiatives in Portland Progress II have been designed with the bureau’s goals in mind. In each strategic initiative, you will find a range of actions -- process improvements, innovative tools, new management approaches -- that together will speed the pace of change at PBOT and position the agency to achieve its fundamental goals more quickly and more efficiently. To measure the effectiveness of each strategy, we have selected performance metrics that we will track and report on during the life of Portland Progress II.
