What is Moving the Needle?

The Moving the Needle Performance Management Report aligns SDOT's business activities with our vision, mission, and core values so that we can evaluate organizational performance against strategic goals. 

The report includes outcome-based metrics weighted against their specific targets, as well as some that are being tracked but do not yet have goals. Many are part of specific SDOT programs and are described in more detail in various publications, such as the Move Seattle Levy performance reports, the Seattle Transportation Benefit District Annual Report, and SDOT traffic reports.
