Universal Citation: OR Rev Stat § 240.850 (2019)

It is the policy of the State of Oregon to encourage cooperative, participatory work environments and team-based management practices in all state agencies. To that end, when feasible and appropriate, state agencies shall:

(1) Delegate responsibility for decision-making and service delivery to the lowest possible level;

(2) Involve all workers, especially frontline workers, in the development and design of processes and program improvements;

(3) Simplify and eliminate internal administrative rules and policies that unduly impede the attainment of the agency’s mission and delivery of services;

(4) Eliminate layers of organizational hierarchies;

(5) Envision state government as a high performance organization in which training and technology are viewed as an investment in the workforce; and

(6) Promote continuous improvement of state services through the involvement of all workers in process design and performance-based outcome development. [1993 c.724 §13b]
