One of the first steps in planning through a crisis is to examine your integrated planning portfolio. At SCUP, we advocate the discipline of integrated planning; namely, a sustainable approach to planning that builds relationships, aligns the organization, and emphasizes preparedness for change. The discipline of integrated planning sets the foundation from which institutions may form a robust planning portfolio that includes both routine and context-specific planning activities.
The staples of your planning portfolio are the institutional strategic plan and operational unit plans. These plans are typically developed and executed on regular cycles; namely, a five-year cycle for strategic plans and a yearly cycle for operational plans, aligned with resource allocation decisions and implementation of strategic initiatives. The strategic and operational plans serve as the base plans for institutional functioning.
Today, many institutions are challenged on two fronts, namely, identifying qualified staff to lead integrated planning efforts and acquiring technological solutions to support campus-wide integrated planning.
