Is Your Organization Being Strategic This Summer?
Beginning a new year with an overall vision and clear plan is vital. In the remaining weeks of summer, here’s some ideas from Dr. April Edwards, Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of the Faculty at Elmhurst College, just outside of Chicago.
Elmhurst College just received approval for their new strategic plan in March 2018. We now have changed our focus to planning the activities that will move this plan from strategy to operations. It is very important to me that everyone in academic affairs (both faculty and staff) understand how their work contributes to the success of the EC2021 plan. To that end, we are changing how we set goals and monitor improvements across campus. There are many subtasks for accomplishing this, but this is one big project we are working on this summer.
