TDOT has adopted a strategic management approach that focuses on positioning the organization to effectively fulfill its mission both now and in the future.  It combines strategic planning with effective management practices. Strategic management is increasingly important at TDOT due to the complex and rapidly changing environment in which we operate.  The demand and need for transportation services by citizens continues to grow, while human and capital resources are declining or static.

Strategic management calls for an on-going process where resources, results, critical issues, trends, and citizen needs are systematically reviewed to help us evaluate and reset priorities.
