Planning Institute 1: Laying the Groundwork for Strategic Planning
Why do so many institutions struggle to leverage a strategic plan into lasting change? Because they create plans in a vacuum. They do not grasp the institution’s strategic issues and create a sound value proposition. They’re not prepared for strategic planning.
The SCUP Planning Institute model starts with the vital actions that must be taken before the planning process begins. It asks the hard questions that need to be answered early. With your institution’s landscape assessed, your problems and opportunities prioritized, and your institution’s value proposition defined, you can create a planning roadmap that makes the rest of your strategic planning process substantially smoother. Beyond that, you can exercise your influence to convince other people to plan.
Planning Institute 1 helps you lay the groundwork that emboldens your strategic plan. You will go back to your campus with tools and techniques that you can use to ask tough questions, prioritize, and prepare your institution for change.
Planning Institute 1 requires that participants do some reading and work prior to arriving at the workshop. Each participant will receive an email containing materials and instructions prior to the workshop date.
Planning Institute 1 is a one-day workshop, 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Light breakfast is provided starting at 7:30 AM; lunch and break snacks will also be provided. It is important that participants arrive on time as this workshop contains a full agenda.
