The Introduction of Continuous Planning in a Maturing Institution
Delunas, Linda R.; Bergland, Bruce
Metropolitan Universities, v18 n1 p16-25 2007
This paper describes the experience of one university in developing a Shared Vision and planning strategically for achieving it. At Indiana University Northwest, strategic planning is an ongoing process that is moving the campus toward its vision for the future and the long-term outcomes derived from it. Unlike traditional strategic outcomes that are finitely measurable, IU Northwest's outcomes are aspirational and include such things as civility, diversity, and engagement. This paper describes a journey from organizational fragmentation to integrated, vision-based planning and accreditation processes.
