  • 3. Levels of Planning Strategic Planning – College-wide; on-going; multi-year Operational Planning – Synthesis of plans from Instruction, Administrative Services, Student Services, President’s Office for coming year. Departmental Planning – All college departments and units develop and prioritize initiatives and related needs.
  • 4. Departmental Planning: 3 years Related Needs Related Strategic Goal(s) Initiatives (prioritized)
  • 5. What is an Initiative?
    • A goal for the department/unit
    • Reflects growth or change, not a continuation of department’s function
    • Focuses the department on where it is headed
    • Helps accomplish the strategic goals of the college
  • 6. What is not an initiative?
    • A need is not an initiative
      • (e.g., hire a research assistant, increase a supply budget)
    • A continuation of what the department does is not an initiative
      • (e.g., continue to maintain buildings and grounds)
  • 7. Thinking About Initiatives
    • What is happening external to the college (e.g., in the community, with technology, at the district office) that might affect what we do in the future as a department?
    • What is happening internally at the college (e.g., student population, changes in business practices) that might affect what we do in the future as a department?
  • 8. Thinking About Initiatives
    • Where are we headed as a department?
    • How do we want to grow and or change?
    • How do our department’s initiatives help accomplish the strategic goals of the college?
  • 9. Examples of Initiatives
    • Plan and implement new departmental processes necessary for the new student system.
    • Expand fiscal services at the Red Mountain Campus.
    • Develop and implement employee training related to the MCC hiring process.
    • Explore and pursue grant funding opportunities to move toward a “green campus” environment.
  • 10. How many initiatives?
    • NOT TOO MANY!
    • Try to limit the number of initiatives to reflect your department’s highest priorities for the coming year(s), and to what can actually be accomplished.
    • Ideally, limit the number of initiatives to between 5 – 10.
  • 11. 3-year plan
    • 2006-2007
    • 2007-2008
    • 2008-2009
    • Plans will typically be most detailed for first year in the cycle and least detailed for last year.
    • 3-year cycle allows departments to phase in new initiatives and the resources needed to support them.
  • 12. Linking Planning & Budgeting
    • Planning is not budgeting – it is driven by initiatives, not by needs
    • Planning allows departments to show where they are heading and what it will take to get there.
    • Planning drives budget decisions
      • Staffing
      • Operational
      • Capital
      • Facilities
