Reframing Strategic Planning Priorities Through Results-based Strategic Design

In this session, you will learn how Results-Based Strategic Design (RBSD) can help you supplement, restart, or reframe planning processes at your institution.
Abstract: Strategic planning processes need to be more engaging, relevant, and effective—especially within the disruptive context of the COVID-19 pandemic. Results-Based Strategic Design (RBSD) is an alternative approach to strategic planning that combines design-thinking methods with a focus on outcomes. By shifting from 'planning' for an unknown future to 'designing' human experiences, RBSD emphasizes student experience rather than institutional preservation, concrete problem solving, early adoption over prioritizing consensus, and strategy as behavioral change. In this session, you will learn how RBSD can help you supplement, restart, or reframe planning processes at your institution.

What Higher Education Can Learn From IT Business Continuity Planning

This discussion will examine how IT continuity activities can both inform and adapt to institutional strategies and needs during COVID-19, or any crisis.

IT has been creating and implementing business continuity plans for years, and IT leaders are some of the few people that see across the entire organization. This discussion will examine how IT continuity activities can both inform and adapt to institutional strategies and needs during a crisis.
