The Annual Planning Process
The Annual Planning Process is fundamental to the implementation of strategy, and yet frequently it seems that what it delivers is not commensurate with the effort and time it absorbs. This session, based on the chapter on annual planning in the HESPA book Higher Education Strategy and Planning, will explore what makes annual planning challenging and how to create a process that works for your university.
We begin from the perspective that the annual planning round must be a structured strategic conversation if it is to be effective, and the day will be structured as a set of conversations. This will allow participants to reflect on the issues and think through what will work in their own environment. We will explore questions such as what is the annual planning round for and what does a good one look like; who are the key stakeholders and how might their goals affect the dynamics of the round; and how to integrate longer-term plans with annual planning.
This session is for colleagues who are responsible for structuring, managing, and contributing to annual planning processes at all levels of a UK higher education institution. It can help those who may be seeking to set up a planning round from scratch or for those wanting to update or amend their existing process.
In our view, an effective annual planning round is best envisaged as a structured strategic conversation; this day will also be structured as a set of conversations designed to explore key elements of that process. We intend, among other things, to use those conversations to explore answers to the following questions:
