Strategic planning for information resources and technology is more crucial than ever to supporting institutional mission and goals, yet few things are more misunderstood than "strategy" and "strategic planning." Effective leaders today must be masters of strategic thinking, planning, and management. This seminar will focus on the strategic planning process and how to develop and implement a successful strategic plan. Subtopics will include a clear understanding of what constitutes "strategic"; the nature of future positioning and competitive advantage; the distinction between "operational planning and management" and "strategic planning and management"; the use of assessment and analytics techniques in monitoring progress toward goals; resource management and allocation techniques; and the potential for technology as an institutional strategic asset. This participatory seminar will include speaker presentations, networking with colleagues, and collaborative problem-based learning. Participants will gain knowledge, skills, and strategies to help guide successful strategic planning, implementation, and management.
