Salem Community College Unit Planning Workbook.
Salem Community Coll., Penns Grove, NJ.
This unit planning workbook is designed to serve as an implementation guide for managing the strategic planning initiatives articulated in the 1999-2003 Strategic Plan. Salem Community College's strategic plan aims towards allowing the college to enter the 21st Century as an active agent in the advancement of the Salem County community. This workbook is written as a combined unit planning process and Strategic Planning Management Plan that aims to empower the community to reflect on the past, present, and future of SCC, and to systematically discuss its newly defined vision, mission, values, and goals. The manual illustrates a twenty-point system of implementing the strategic plan, through the development of both a framework for and a process of unit planning. Salem College's newly adapted organizational framework is "heterarchy," which embraces the ideas of emergence and complexity. The twenty key points for implementing the 1999-2003 Strategic Plan are subdivided into five central themes: (1) Establish Accountability, (2) Adjust the Institution, (3) Teach Ourselves, (4) Empower All, and (5) Evaluate and Reward. The unit planning process is divided into five areas for articulating these goals: (1) Develop Direction, (2) Identify Priority Actions, (3) Summarize Action Plans, (4) Report Priorities, Objectives, and Interdependence, and (5) Develop and Strategy. Contains 12 references. (JJL)
