MnDOT Innovation Strategy Report CoverStatus:  Complete
Report Date:  02/28/2022


In a world of rapidly changing needs, government must operate effectively and efficiently to deliver today’s services and plan for tomorrow. Government agencies are facing dwindling budgets, increased citizen expectations, and morphing societal needs. In response, leaders are increasingly seeing innovation as a mindset and process to help solve challenging problems and improve the lives of the people they serve. The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) is not immune from such challenges and in 2020 began the deliberative process of developing an innovation strategy to help the agency solve its greatest challenges and more effectively and efficiently deliver transportation services. The innovation strategy outlined in this report provides an actionable roadmap for fostering and sustaining a culture of innovation. This will lead to novel and sustainable products, processes, and practices that further MnDOT’s reputation as a national transportation leader.
