Field of Study: Business Management & Organization Program Level: Advanced 1.5 CPE
Time: 2:00 pm  - 4:00 pm PT
Presenter: Paul Friga and Ruth Johnston

Description

Strategy is one of the most critical elements of any organization. The goal of strategic planning is create a strategy that successfully links resource allocations to support the intended strategic direction of the organization and achieve stated objectives. In periods of crisis, some leaders focus on freezing and cutting and neglect to stay focused on key priorities. Moves made during recessions will lead to greater gains coming out of tough economic times. The key is balance. 

Learning Objectives

By the end of this session participants will:

  • Apply the content and process of good strategic planning, including scenario planning
  • Observe best practice examples of strategy and tips for success – especially in crisis
  • Explore first-hand examples of institutions balancing short and long term priorities

Time: 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm PT
Presenter: Paul Friga and Rebecca Barber

Description

The key to successful execution of a nicely formulated strategy is resource allocation. In this segment, we will walk through the importance of tying two types of important resources, people and money, to strategic priorities of the institution. We will also cover the importance of budgeting and evaluating performance with clear metrics of success.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this session participants will:

  • Realize the importance of resource allocation to strategy
  • Identify different tools of resource allocation in an organization – especially the creation of supporting initiatives, appropriate budgets, and most importantly, underlying data

Description

Great leadership is rising above the noise and guiding your organization through an uncertain and open future. It is the act of generating collaboration with the willingness to publicly declare how your institution will change. In this session, you will learn the competencies needed to lift yourself up as a strategic leader, with humility as a guiding principle. Inspiring and engaging your teams lives in language with an awareness to practice what you preach. Resiliency, humility, and courage is the glue that will mobilize your community to be part of meaningful culture change.

Time: 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm PT

Description

In this time of uncertainty and change, the principles of diversity and inclusion have been lifted as an explicit strategic imperative across the country.  How can we engage and mobilize our teams to demonstrate a commitment to inclusive hiring practices and transform the make-up of our student body? In this session we will engage in a conversation on the growing need for inclusion and explore our own unconscious bias that keep us from creating a diverse community.
