UTO Unveils FY21 Priorities & Goals: Strategic Planning for the Year Ahead

BY SBECKE11 – JUNE 30, 2020

In conjunction with the start of the new fiscal year on July 1, 2020, the University Technology Office at ASU has published our priorities and goals for the next 365 days. Think of the priorities as our North Stars and the goals as the pathways that lead us to those North Stars -- with measurable outcomes. These North Stars also reflect shared priorities from our ASU partners, particularly in service of teaching, learning, operations and research.

The UTO FY21 Strategic Priorities + Goals were determined by a team of 60+ leaders across the organization. A December 2019 retreat kicked off the discussions with small- and full-group activities designed to surface the group’s major themes and strategies. A consensus- building exercise illuminated the ones deemed by the group as most vital for the fiscal year ahead. After an initial draft was produced, the team reviewed it and proposed revisions. This process reflects the culture of empowered collaboration at UTO. Cross-functional strategic planning is a foundational element of UTO 2.1 -- an expression of our reframing in FY21 as a rapidly reconfigurable and entrepreneurial organizational structure that prioritizes and executes projects to better meet the needs of our community.

These Priorities and Goals will be intentionally iterated over the course of the year as we remain agile to meet the evolving needs of the ASU community.
