In learning-centered community colleges, planning, like all processes, must measurably improve learning and learner performance. This article shares Valencia Community College's approach to revising its strategic planning process based on the Organizational Elements Model to: 1) focus strategic planning on learning results that add value for learners and the communities the college serves; 2) ensure that the process of planning is a learning opportunity for the institution and its stakeholders; and 3) ensure that college plans are integrated by aligning them according to their contribution to meeting societal needs, defined as gaps in results.
