THE FIVE STEPS OF STRATEGIC PLANNING

STRATEGIC PLANNING
  • Strategic Planning should be a discussion about
    how to maximize the opportunities and minimize
    the risks facing the school.
  • Littleford Associates , 2007

3
The Five Steps of Strategic Planning
  • CLARIFY THE VISION
  • COLLECT THE DATA
  • IDENTIFY THE CRITICAL ISSUES
  • CHOOSE THE STRATEGIES
  • WRITE THE PLAN

4
STEP 1 - CLARIFY THE VISION
  • The first step of all strategic planning
  • The vision tells us where our organization is
    going
  • Every goal, objective, activity must move us
    towards the vision.

ACTIVITY 1 THE VISION
  • Where is our school going and where do we want to
    be in ten years time?
  • Visioning process

STEP 2 - COLLECT THE DATA
  • The problem isthe failureto be results focused
    and data driven. Coaches regularly adjust
    performance in light of ongoing results,
    dramatically altering their plans in light of
    unexpectedly poor results.
  • Wiggins, 1994
  • We can, whenever and wherever we choose,
    successfully teach all children whose schooling
    is of interest to us.
  • Edmonds, 1979
  • Common goals that are regularly evaluated against
    common measures sustain collective focus and
    reveal the best opportunities for practitioners
    to learn from each other, and hence to get better
    results.
  • Schmoker, 1996

WHICH DATA?
  • Quantitative data
  • Statistics
  • Spreadsheets
  • Graphs
  • Qualitative data
  • Surveys
  • Focus groups

  • GOVERNANCE - conflict of interest, code of
    conduct, strategic focus, evaluation
  • STAFFING qualifications, costs, appraisal, PD,
    personnel procedures and policies
  • STUDENT WELFARE child protection,
    anti-bullying, leadership, pastoral care
  • FACILITIES number and type, condition, internal
    and external visual appeal
  • DEMOGRAPHICS internal and external
  • EDUCATION PROGRAM curriculum, work programs,
    assessment, extra-curricular, technology,
    inclusiveness, results
  • PUBLIC RELATIONS - admission and recruitment,

QUALITATIVE DATA?
  • DESCRIPTIVE AND CONSTITUENT-BASED
  • 360 degree survey that is the results of a
    thorough survey of members of the school
    community e.g. students, parents, staff, old
    scholars, employers etc.
  • Focus groups
  • Individual interviews.

STEP 3 - IDENTIFY THE ISSUES
  • Critical Issues
  • are related to a core problem
  • affect the lives of a significant number of
    people either directly or indirectly
  • can be addressed through the competencies and
    resources of the organization
  • must be addressed if the organization is to
    progress in its work
  • build on the strengths of the organization and/or
    the opportunities available to it
  • address weaknesses in the organization and/or
    assist the organization to deal with threats to
    its work or existence.

  • WEAKNESSES
  • OPPORTUNITIES
  • THREATS

STEP 4 - CHOOSE THE STRATEGIES
  • The classic focus group process
  • Where are we now?
  • Where do we want to be?
  • How are we going to get there?

14
Activity 3
  • For each identified issue, determine the
    strategies for your plan by answering the
    questions
  • What is the ideal in regard to this issue?
  • What are our current strengths in relation to
    this issue?
  • What are the areas for development?

15
WRITING THE PLAN
  • WHAT SHOULD BE INCLUDED?
  • MISSION/VISION
  • Goals
  • Strategies
  • Actions
  • Timeline
  • Who is responsible
  • Key performance indicators
  • How the plan will be monitored and reported
