At a 2011 Academic Impressions conference on "Integrated Strategic Planning and Resource Allocation" (San Antonio, January 2011), 50 presidents, provosts, chief finance officers, and other members of senior leadership teams from an array of  public and private institutions were asked about the key issues and barriers they saw to making a planning and budgeting process effective -- and ensuring its implementation.
