Integrated Strategic Planning and Resource Allocation
Venue: Hyatt Regency San Antonio
|Event Date/Time: Jan 24, 2011||End Date/Time: Jan 26, 2011|
Strategic planning at a college or university is difficult work. Institutions are large, complex, and highly decentralized environments. Most institutions tackle strategic planning reluctantly and without meaningfully seeking input and commitment from key stakeholders, which unfortunately leads to plans that are disconnected from budgets and plans that don't get implemented.
Join two leading experts (who have assisted more than 100 campuses) in strategic planning and resource allocation to learn proven techniques necessary to design, organize, and implement a planning and resource allocation process that can be successfully and efficiently applied in almost any campus environment.
KEY PROGRAM TAKEAWAYS
This program is right for you if you are looking for practical strategies to:
* Engage the campus community in the planning effort
* Build trust by using an open and transparent planning process
* Plan efficiently
* Allocate resources in ways that are consistent with established priorities and institutional values
* Develop measurable institutional goals that can be assessed
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Provosts, chief financial officers, chief planning officers, and other cabinet-level officials who are charged with stewarding institution-wide planning processes will benefit most from this program. Given their role in championing the process, we encourage presidents to attend as part of their larger planning team.
Because of the highly interactive nature of this program, participation is limited.
A UNIQUE, HANDS-ON FORMAT
This is a highly immersive program and offers an active learning opportunity. At the event, you'll use a multi-faceted case study to apply the lessons learned and grapple with tough planning decisions. You'll also simulate various planning activities that you can replicate back on campus. With a focus on practice and application, you'll leave this program with the tools, processes, and skills to meaningfully engage stakeholders on campus.
BUILD YOUR PROFESSIONAL LIBRARY - INCLUDED IN YOUR REGISTRATION
Given the focus on tactics and techniques that you can use immediately back on campus, we are including an important resource on planning that is a must-have addition to your professional library.
Collaborative Strategic Planning in Higher Education
Written by nationally-renowned planning expert and program facilitator, Patrick Sanaghan, this book offers a hands-on guide to facilitating your strategic planning process with a highly credible, internal planning task force. The book is packed with meeting activities and designs that show you how to facilitate difficult and complex conversations and meaningfully engage large numbers of the campus community efficiently.
WHAT YOU NEED TO BRING
Because of the working nature of the program, we recommend that you bring:
* A laptop
* A flash drive to store files
Note: Not all participants will need these items. They will be used in the final day to create and present your group's PowerPoint presentation.
