On August 26, 2020, the GBA and GIP presented a webinar on developing and implementing strategic plans. A strategic plan identifies how an organization will prioritize their resources to achieve a desired future state while positioning itself to be competitive within the industry. Strategic plans most notoriously fail in the implementation phase; however, implementation success hinges upon the quality of the plan formulation. This session provided a strategic planning overview, medical school specific approaches, as well as how to utilize logic models as a strategic planning framework.
- Articulate the four major components of a strategic planning process in academic medicine.
- Identify essential skill sets that strategic planners must master to manage a successful planning process.
- Understand how and when to implement various tools into individual schools’ planning processes.
