In today’s dynamic higher education environment, institutions are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of sound planning as a key to long-term sustainability. What does your institution need to know in order to successfully engage in any type of planning? Does your school develop separate plans for various purposes or have you taken a holistic approach that unifies all planning into a single, institution-wide initiative that engages all leadership, faculty, staff, board and volunteers? Are you getting ready to tackle a new strategic, master or fundraising plan or update an existing plan but are concerned about investing limited time and resources only to produce questionable results?
Please join David Sayers to create a formalized, creative and continuous planning process that involves a systematic and objective response to the challenges you’re facing. It is critical to understand the “dos and don’ts” in order to avoid producing a plan that sits on a shelf gathering dust.
