Preparation phase:

  • Work with Dean or Chair to identify meaningful data.

  • Collect and distribute data to faculty for their review.

  • Encourage faculty to read the UA strategic plan.


Reflection l.jpg

Reflection:

  • Working together as a whole group, the faculty develop a time line to capture the history of the College or department.

  • Working together, the faculty identify what they consider to be the program’s strengths, weaknesses, threats, and opportunities.


Visioning l.jpg

Visioning:

  • Imagine it is 7 years in the future.

  • The College/Department is being recognized as the best of its type in the nation.

  • Describe this future state.

  • Staying in the future, describe what we did over the past 7 years to get there.


Prioritizing l.jpg

Prioritizing:

  • Work with the list of actions that would have been taken over the past seven years.

  • Nominal Group Technique.

  • Discuss the implications of the NGT exercise.

  • Let it soak in.


Develop action plans l.jpg

Develop Action Plans:

  • Organize the high priority actions into categories. (Research, teaching, outreach, professional growth)

  • Identify what steps will be taken, who will be responsible, and completion dates.

  • Use as a drum beat.


Implement l.jpg

Implement:

  • Most actions have turned out to be within the sphere of influence of the faculty.

  • Many actions led to the development of creative alliances with other groups.

  • Keep reviewing progress in faculty meetings.

  • Inform your friends.


Re assess l.jpg

Re-Assess:

  • Most strategic plans have run their course within three years.

  • New circumstances require us to constantly re-assess to either adjust, hold the course, or set new goals.

  • Everything changes, so don’t think that one plan is the ultimate cure-all.
