According to Bresciani (2010), the “strategic plan represents the ideal of what the institutional leadership desires to achieve” (p. 39). Traditionally, however, strategic planning has often been viewed as an intimidating and difficult process leading to a document that may sit on a shelf (or be stored on a flash drive) and not be used in organizational decision-making processes. Using Bresciani’s Seven Practical Steps to ensuring data-driven planning, this webinar will provide theory, tips, and resources for each of the seven steps to help practitioners select those that fit best with their institutional culture. The webinar will provide links between Bresciani’s seven steps and several related planning processes and tools that dovetail with traditional strategic planning elements, including Enterprise Risk Management (ERM), Appreciative Inquiry, Integrated Budgeting and Planning, and the use of Logic Models.
