ROW divisions must align their sub-goals and action items with the entire DOT mission to ensure maximum efficiency and to foster an attitude of one mission, one goal, one team. Strategic planning efforts should be flexible in thought and inclusive in nature, particularly as ROW organizations are highly dependent on other groups both for input to the ROW process and for output to other internal groups. Flexibility in the plan allows personnel to easily adapt to changes in workload or environmental factors. Inclusiveness makes everyone a part of the process and promotes teamwork. These attributes allow a ROW organization to share workload across functional or geographical boundaries when conditions warrant, as well as adapt to a rapidly changing environment.
