The University of Wolverhampton has developed a new Strategic Plan for 2016 - 2021, following a period of significant consultation with staff and key strategic stakeholders. The Strategic Plan outlines the strategic direction of the organisation over the next 5 years.
The University approached the strategic planning process through an inclusive, open and transparent process which involved a number of face to face open staff consultations with the Vice Chancellor and staff across three campuses.
This was followed by consultations with key internal stakeholders, such as Governors, Academic Board, Unions and the Professoriate in addition to the open staff consultation meetings. For staff unable to attend the open meetings, they were able to watch a video of the Vice Chancellor on the plan, followed by an opportunity to comment via a dedicated email address for feedback to be submitted. A draft plan was also sent to key external stakeholders, including local authorities to ensure alignment to their strategic direction.
Following the approval of the Strategic Plan 2016-2021, a similar body of work was conducted to agree a set of eleven Key Performance Indicators which allows the University to measure our performance against the ambitious pillars and goals set within the plan.
The model of KPIs that we are using allows us to modify, add and subtract metrics as the HE environment and the University changes over the coming years. But it is envisaged that the KPIs will remain constant throughout the life of the strategic plan.
