Strategic Initiatives

As the largest municipal utility in the nation, LADWP establishes and leads with core strategic initiatives to ensure we meet the needs of our customers and continue to operate with the future in mind.

2023-2026 Strategic Plan

To address the changing needs of our customers and the challenges facing the water and power industries, LADWP has developed the 2023-2026 Strategic Plan with an updated mission statement and a core strategy for achieving measurable objectives with specific goals over the next three years. The plan is informed by a thorough analysis of the threats and opportunities presented to the Department by the environment in which we operate as well as our internal strengths and limitations.

Elements of the 2023-2026 Strategic Plan include a business definition, a strategic mission statement that is both quantitative and qualitative, a core strategy, and a series of key result areas including Markets, Products & Services, Resources, Operational Systems, Management Systems, Financial Results Management, and External Relations. A separate Culture Management Plan is under development. For each key result area, the plan identifies objectives with measurable goals, responsible staff and dates for completion.
