  6. What are the “Givens” of the Planning Process? • The Planning Horizon is 5 years • NCAA, Conference, Title IX rules and requirements are all honored • Athletics Values are based on Division II Values • The Current Divisions for each sport remain constant • A commitment to Health and Wellness is part of the message • Recreation is an integral part of the Athletics Plan

  7. President Potter shared some “givens” and expected outcomes for the planning process in February 2013. Orientation Sessions were held with the Core Planning Team, Athletics and Recreation Staff and Coaches during February and March 2013. Initial Input sessions were held with Coaches and Athletics and Recreation staff during February and March 2013. Best Practice Information for key competitive schools was gathered and shared with Core Team members during April – June 2013. A detailed web-based input surveywas taken by 2,683 participants representing internal (coaches, students, student-athletes, staff and administrators) and external (fans, donors, alumni, parents) stakeholder groups. Results were presented to SCSU’s Management Team in May 2013. Coach Update and Input Sessions were held in May (survey results) and July (strategic plan work-in-progress, best practice Q&A) and October (detailed initiatives, strategies and tactics) Planning Team workshops were held on multiple occasions from February through August focused on setting strategic purpose and direction and identifying implementation initiatives. Financial Planning Sessions were held in August – October with Finance and Administration to create financial scenarios that support the strategic plan.

  13. Strategy Purpose

  14. Strategy Direction Objective, Scope, Advantage Summary

  15. Strategy Direction – Advantage DetailValue Proposition – Student Athlete Recruitment • Observations/Implications • The Student Athlete Choice Criteria are listed in order of importance to the Student Athletes surveyed. • Current and Prospective SCSU student-athletes were invited to take the survey, meaning that the results do not reflect Student Athletes who were recruited by SCSU and chose another school. • Anecdotally, coaches understand that facilities and scholarships played a larger role in the decision-making process of the athletes that were lost to other schools. • About 10% of the students surveyed also indicated that proximity to home (location) played a role in their decision to attend SCSU. • The planning team believes institution size is a significant factor in school choice as well. • Improving facilities and offering scholarships are the two key initiative areas that would improve SCSU’s Student Athlete Recruitment value proposition. Note: Chart ratings are from the May 2013 Athletics Survey

  16. Strategy Direction – Advantage DetailSCSU Athletics Recruitment – Sweet Spot • Current Sweet Spot • Coaches (strong leaders, individual attention to athletes • Size (academic choices) • Location (smaller city with access to Twin Cities) • Winning Tradition in some sports • Strong Facilities in some sports • Future Sweet Spot • Maintain the existing Sweet Spot and… • Expand Winning Tradition to more sports • Expand Strong Facilities to more sports • Increase Scholarships • Strengthen Student Services Support • Create a Compelling Fan Experience • Create a Sense of Belonging to SCSU Athletics Source: Collis & Rukstad. “Can You Say What Your Strategy Is?” Harvard Business Review (April 2008).
