Strategic Planning

Creating and Implementing Strategic Plans

Do you know how to create a strategic plan? Do you know how to build it so that it is a living strategy rather than a document that lives on a shelf? Does the thought of building consensus for a new plan seem like a monumental task? Does your institutional culture appreciate how important concrete goal-setting is in achieving the institution’s goals?

To complement the 2013 Creating and Implementing Strategic Plans Workshop, the Group on Institutional Planning (GIP) has developed an online resource on this topic.  The site augments professional knowledge around:

  • the strategic planning process
  • environmental assessment tools
  • performance excellence and continuous improvement methods
  • action plans
  • organizational alignment
  • and accountability.

Whether you have significant experience in organizational strategic planning or you are newly-tasked with developing strategy for a unit, department, or center within a medical school or teaching hospital, this online resource will provide valuable content, information sharing, and exercises to build or refresh your strategic planning skills.
