Creating Momentum: Strategies for an Innovative Integral Planning Program
April 27, 2017 | KU Edwards Campus | Overland Park, KS
Creating momentum in the integral planning process is one of the biggest challenges every institution―regardless of size or focus―is facing. Developing an innovative approach that incorporates all key issues of demand, quality, schedule, and funding into actionable and achievable steps is the ultimate goal. Today, with access to new technologies, advanced data analytics, and new approaches to planning processes, campuses have innovative ways to create innovative plans that inherently build momentum to achieve strategic integral solutions.
This one-day program will feature speakers sharing new ideas about integrated process and the results of their strategic capital planning programs. They will provide insight into the initiation, integration, and inclusive nature of creating successful long-range plans that span the traditional silos of the institution. The event will take place in the KU Edwards Campus BEST Building.
Our featured keynote speaker, Nancy Sturm, will speak on aspects of disruption that are impacting campuses nationwide.
