The Strategic Plan 2016-2020 is at the apex of the University's planning cycle, driving the University-wide priorities and operational planning. The Strategic Plan was developed through a broad consultation process across the University and its stakeholders.
The Strategic Plan is implemented through: University priorities; a commitment to continuous improvement; setting targets to measure performance against the annual priorities; and the annual formal University Institutional Performance Review
Each year University Priorities are established which focus strategic approaches aimed at achieving the Goals of the Strategic Plan and focusing budget alignment for the following year.
Organisational Units within the University develop Operational Plans which provide a focus for prioritisation and performance evaluation of the Unit's activities across a particular year. The Plans themselves may cover a period of three years in order to highlight developmental or structured requirements for specific activities.
