A Collaborative, Ongoing University Strategic Planning Framework

Process, Landmines, and Lessons

Planners at Cleveland State University describe that institution’s highly communicative and participatory strategic planning process.

From Volume 37 Number 4 | July–September 2009

Abstract: This article examines the strategic planning process at Cleveland State University, a large metropolitan state university in Ohio. A faculty-administrative team used a communicative planning approach to develop a collaborative, ongoing, bottom-up, transparent strategic planning process. This team then spearheaded the process through plan development and the early stages of implementation and evaluation. The article presents the framework for this process in detail and includes a three-year timetable. The authors discuss the unexpected landmines that threatened to undermine the process and the important lessons learned in the hopes that this will aid other universities in their strategic planning efforts.
