Abstract for: Strategic Planning Model & Tools for a State University College

Presented here are strategic planning tools used at a State University, College of Business. Four distinct tools are presented: The Strategic Initiative Scoring Model, which communicates how the college strategic planning execution projects fit the strategic priorities of the University’s mission statement & strategic plan; the college Strategic Risk Planning Matrix, which describes both risk assessments and risk management plans; the college Strategic Planning (SD) Model, which is used by administrators to assess impacts from proposed or mandated changes in budgets, admissions, Student-Faculty Ratio targets, and faculty hiring/attrition; and the Strategic Performance Indicator matrix, used to monitor performance and drive the creation of new projects to be assessed in the Strategic Initiative Scoring Model.
