Guidelines for Planning in Colleges and Universities. Volume One, Planning System.
Pinnell, Charles; Wacholder, Michael
This volume outlines a system for effective planning in higher education. The system integrates management and program planning, physical plant planning, and financial planning into a single process designed to support institutional management and decision making at all administrative levels. Because successful planning is a process, procedures for annual update and review are discussed. The report concludes that (1) a good total planning system should become a keystone of institutional management, (2) the creation of a top level administrative position of planning and analytical studies is necessary to the successful implementation of planning, (3) the planning process can and should be supported by a strong base of quantitative data, and (4) planning must be dynamic and continuing.
