Strategic Planning is a key tool in helping UNTHSC carry out our mission to create solutions for a healthier community and to achieve our vision to be the team of choice for education, discovery and health care. The Office of Strategy and Organizational Excellence (OSOE) is responsible for providing data, information and analyses in support of the development and implementation of the strategic plan. The development of the fiscal year 2015 UNTHSC Strategic Plan involved the Executive Team and other key stakeholders. The Executive Team is comprised of individuals functionally responsible for institutional-wide leadership and is charged with providing advice and input as well as decision making for all aspects of strategic planning, operations, tactical initiatives, budgeting, and achievement of goals and expectations for all aspects of the UNTHSC to achieve the mission and vision. This group met on a weekly basis starting in early January 2014 thru May 2014. The early stages of this process not only involved the development of an environmental scan and SWOT analysis but also focused on ensuring that everyone developed a common language and understanding of strategic planning. UNTHSC leaders used this and other information to develop the institutional strategic plan that was vetted with key stakeholders such as the Faculty Senate. Starting in June 2014 the strategic plan has started to be cascaded down the organization starting with the deans and vice presidents, who will develop action plans to support the institutional plan. This process will continue over the balance of the summer with the chairs and directors, who will develop action plans at the department level to support those of their schools and departments. The development of the strategic plan, at all levels, of the institution also includes the development of measures and targets for all action plans to help ensure accountability and successful execution. This systematic cascading process is designed to ensure alignment of all strategic plans and resources within UNTHSC.
