Ignite: Fueling Organizational Excellence
Anatomy of a Strategy
For any organization, a thoughtful and well-developed strategy or strategic plan tells the story of what the organization is or wants to be, where it is going, how it is going to get there, and how it will make choices among competing priorities. The concept of and most frameworks for strategy development and strategic planning come from the world of business. To maximize strategy development and strategic planning in higher education, we must adapt existing concepts and frameworks from the business world to fit with our mission, unique culture, and way of doing the work.
In this session, you will discover what strategy development and strategic planning are (and are not), explore strategy elements, discuss options for including internal and external voices in your planning efforts, and learn how to avoid missteps in implementing and executing a developed strategy.
