When the author became president of Wheelock College in Boston in 2004, she asked the trustees and the entire campus community to engage in an innovative strategic planning and visioning process. The goal was to achieve consensus on a strategic vision for the future of Wheelock College by the end of her first year. This article discusses how Wheelock College has used an innovative, results-oriented strategic planning process to create a shared vision and a plan that is inspirational, actionable, and measurable. It presents a firsthand account of how Wheelock fared at strategic planning.
