We conceive of planning as an iterative process within the context of our Mission and Values.¬† Trustees provide direction and feedback in response to strategies and goals developed by Senior Staff.¬† Broad employee participation takes place at All-Campus Conversations led by the President as well as in department meetings.¬† Detailed planning is carried out by Senior Staff operating managers working in consultation with direct reports who carry out implementation.
Our Annual Strategic Planning Retreat includes a review of strategies and their fit with our Mission as well as an Environmental Scan that integrates data about the college, our community, and the market as a whole.¬† As a public institution, we also are guided by State Interests and Strategies as set forth in the Wyoming Community College Commission Strategic Plan.
Financial planning supports the strategic planning process.¬† Master planning is aligned with our strategic planning process to ensure that capital priorities respond to actual¬†needs.¬† The Board-approved Master Plans for Sheridan and Gillette include campus maps showing existing and planned facilities.¬† The plans are reviewed regularly with particular attention to physical plant capacity and its ability to support strategic priorities.
Our Institutional Scorecard is a snapshot of organization health based on seven key indicators.¬† All except Degrees and Certificates Awarded are composite measures based on multiple working measures used for planning and decision-making in functional areas.¬† Each measure is explained on page two of the scorecard.¬† For more information see our Systems Portfolio Update 2013.
