The VVM Strategy for Institutional Success
Calder, William B.
College Quarterly, v10 n3 p1-7 Sum 2007
Changes to educational institutions, such as mandate, leadership, financial resources, academic program offerings, etc. can often lead to a reassessment of their declared values, vision, and their mission (or referred to as VVM). Unless an institution explicitly develops and articulates its values, vision, and mission, and until it is clearly understood by stakeholders, and widely supported, then the institution itself is at the mercy of everyday events. However, an institution's governing body and its leaders are required to go beyond short-term or daily events. A comprehensive strategy involving the exploration of values and guiding principles, the creation of a vibrant future and the defining of results for its customers can soon set an institution on the right path of sustainability and success.
