Next steps for college’s Strategic Plan process

After we wrap up our strategic planning February Fridays tomorrow, the college will turn its attention to reviewing all feedback.
Step 1: Reviewing feedback and holding follow-up meeting
Information from every February Friday brainstorming group, the community listening forums and the inbox will be compiled and summarized. A summary will be provided at the Strategic Planning Follow-Up Meeting from 3-5 p.m. March 25. That meeting is open to all employees. Meeting details are below:

Step 2: Strategic Planning Workgroups
After the Strategic Planning Follow-Up Meeting, we will build our Strategic Planning Workgroups for each of the plan’s six focus areas. These workgroups will include tri-leads – ideally a member of the Executive Leadership Team, an Academic Senator, and a non-management employee – as well as up to seven other employees. The Center for Data Science and Financial Services will also designate an employee to participate on each workgroup as needed.
You can express your interest in joining (with supervisory approval) and/or serving as a tri-lead by emailing Please include your preferred focus area(s) in your email. Because of the 10-person limit for each workgroup, we might not be able to accommodate all requests for participation.
Workgroups will meet during April and May to formulate goals based on the summary information provided at the Strategic Planning Follow-Up Meeting. They will develop a project charter for each project proposed to meet the goals, outcomes and key performance indicators of the focus area. The product of this work will be submitted for inclusion within the Strategic Plan document presented to the Board of Trustees in September 2021 for a first read. 
Step 3: Strategic Planning Teams
Once the new Strategic Plan is approved by the Board of Trustees, the tri-leads will be expected to participate on the Strategic Planning Team that will meet periodically to make sure identified projects are implemented. This will involve:

  • Data collection
  • Problem solving
  • Data analysis
  • Project implementation work
  • Completion of quarterly reports

Tri-leads will also be expected to periodically present updated information regarding the focus area to the LCC community, including the Board of Trustees and senior leadership (as requested).

All general workgroup participants who are not one of the tri-leads will be welcome (but not required) to volunteer their time to work on a Strategic Planning Team.

Feedback? Questions? Volunteers?
As a reminder, you have until the end of day on Friday, March 12, to send any ideas or feedback to Emails to volunteer to join the workgroups or serve as a tri-lead can be sent to that same address through close of business on March 31.
