Strategic Roadmap 2024
As part of its biennial strategic planning process, Western, through its regions, is creating a strategic roadmap that will define what Western and its regions will look like and what role it will play in the energy industry, with our customers and within the federal government in 2024. This roadmap will help Western make the right investments and right decisions to navigate the changes and technological advances of a dynamic industry landscape while continuing to provide reliable and secure power and quality service to customers. It will also be flexible and adaptable enough to evolve with an continuously changing industry and will be revisited often over the next decade to ensure it continues to meet the needs of Western and its customers.
Western hired a third-party consultant, NewGen Strategies and Solutions, to facilitate the process. By spring 2014, we anticipate completing the roadmap exercise.

Working draft roadmap
Western is sharing the working draft roadmap with customers, employees, the Department of Energy and others, and wants to hear what you think. If you have comments or feedback on the roadmap, please submit it to your Regional Manager or StrategicPlanning@wapa.gov.
Survey, interview results
In August, NewGen presented Western’s senior management team survey results and input gathered from interviews conducted in July.
There were two surveys: an external one for firm electric service and transmission customers, generating agencies and customer representatives, and an internal one for Western staff. NewGen also conducted interviews with 15 operating entities identified by Western (2-3 per region) and about 20 employee interviews to receive more insight into industry trends and predictions and perspectives on Western’s role in the industry in 2024.
Western is still evaluating the findings, but here are some documents to see Western's progress in evaluating the data:
