Strategic Planning: From Strategy Formation to Execution
CLICKS has both a depth and breadth of ‘hands-on’ experience in facilitating the development of strategic plans for the higher education sector. We work with Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) on delivering integrated, holistically-balanced, ‘ﬁt for purpose’ planning services for institutions of all sizes. We work hand in hand with the Executive Leadership Team and various stakeholders to help Universities and Colleges set their strategic directions, improve operational eﬃciency and drive world class levels of performance, while improving quality at all levels.
Our Principles and Approach
Our proven approach to strategic planning facilitation, development and implementation is built around the following principles:
Whether your institution has already a strategic plan in place and simply requires external support to revisit it and ‘tune it up’, to develop tools and mechanisms to support the cascading of the strategic plan into action or is considering building capacity among your faculty and staﬀ or whether it is looking at developing a comprehensive approach to the development and implementation of its strategic plan from scratch; our highly experienced team will be ready to assist by tailoring the right approach to address your particular institutional needs and requirements.
Our streamlined, ‘hands-on’ and collaborative methodology is designed to ensure that we respond to your needs while taking into account your institution’s context and particularities.
