Learn how to better engage stakeholders on campus to create and implement a strategic plan.
Strategic planning at a college or university is difficult work. Institutions are large, complex, and highly decentralized environments. Most institutions tackle strategic planning reluctantly and without meaningfully seeking input and commitment from key stakeholders, which unfortunately leads to plans that are disconnected from budgets and plans that don’t get implemented.
Join two leading experts in strategic planning to learn proven techniques necessary to design, organize, and implement a strategic plan that can be successfully and efficiently applied in almost any campus environment. You will also receive a substantial workbook to guide your learning at the event.
Because of the interactive nature of this program, participation is limited to just 50 registrants.
Provosts, chief financial officers, chief planning officers, and other cabinet level officials who are charged with stewarding institution-wide planning processes will benefit most from this program. Given their roles in championing the process, we encourage presidents to attend as part of their larger planning team.
Ultimately, aligning plans, people, and resources is about working collaboratively across departments and divisions. This program will give you the tools and techniques you need to do this in a meaningful way. Our focus is more than creating a beautiful strategic plan; it’s about the hard work of implementation to move your institution forward.
Given the focus on tactics and techniques that you can use immediately back on campus, we are including an important resource on planning that is a must-have addition to your professional library.
