The University’s Strategic Plan “Inspiring a Sustainable Growth” was approved by Council in January 2022. The Strategy set the direction for the University for the latter part of the NDP11 Plan Period (2023) to the mid-point of the NDP 12 Plan Period (2026).
The appointment of a new Vice Chancellor, the effective transfer to the Ministry of Education and Skills Development and the re-alignment of the National Planning Cycle, with NDP12 commencing as from April 2025, preceded by a Transitional Plan (2023-2025), provides an opportunity to review the current Strategic Plan and, if required, re-align the Strategy to the new current reality.
The retreat will commenced with an assessment of BUAN’s Strategy Management Maturity , followed by a review of the “Big Picture” to determine if the Strategy is still valid. This is to be followed by a deep dive to examine the more granular details of the strategic plan including objectives, measures, targets and initiatives.
The outcome of the retreat will provide a high-level overview of the progress in implementing the University Strategy and answers to the following key questions:
a) ‘How well is the institution performing?’
b) ‘Are we doing the right things?’
c) ‘Are we doing things, right?’
d) ‘What should we be doing in the future?’
