Overview of the Planning Process
The MGCCC Planning Process facilitates advancement of the Strategic Plan through unit planning which allows both long- and short-term goals (referred to as effectiveness indicators) to be assessed in a single annual plan. Unit effectiveness plans include the college mission statement and a unit purpose statement. The unit purpose statement uniquely identifies primary functions or activities, stakeholders, and other clarifying statements for each unit. Each effectiveness indicator is assessed through one or more expected outcomes. Expected outcomes are designed to be evaluated on an annual basis for both long- and short-range initiatives. Also indicated on the plan is the correlation of each effectiveness indicator to the Strategic Plan. Assessment instruments are identified for each expected outcome. The primary purpose of identifying assessment instruments is to determine data and reporting needs for plan evaluation purposes. Assessment results are gathered and reported for each effectiveness indicator. To complete the loop, units must respond with an appropriate plan of improvement for each effectiveness indicator.
Assessment activities are also used to identify important issues for discussion and action needed by governance councils. Each step of the strategic planning process is needed for continual improvement of institutional quality and for demonstrable accomplishment of mission. The following components are reported on in each planning unit document.
♦ Unit Purpose
♦ Key Performance Indicator
♦ Colleges Core Commitment
♦ Expected Outcome
♦ Assessment Instrument used to Assess Key Performance Indicator
