Planning Alignment

No one wants their college or university strategic plan to sit on the shelf, collecting dust. So how do you make sure your plan is implemented and serves as a dynamic guide to decisions across campus? Alignment. Integrated planning emphasizes alignment, both vertically (from the institution’s mission to day-to-day activities) and horizontally (across departments and processes, especially those related to budget and resource allocation). In higher education, we realize potential when we bring planning together.
