Navigating Change: The Podcast from Teibel Education

Building Your Vision 2020 Part 1 - with John Eldert and Howard Teibel

Episode Summary

Academic planning often adopts the business approach to strategic planning. The results are predictable: clear, measurable outcomes; tight, pithy vision statement; focused strategy targeting a clear and "directable" organizational culture. But these assumptions don't fit the higher education planning environment, with many parallel lines of activity, complex vision, and an environment that is often far more self-directed.

Episode Notes

Academic planning often adopts the business approach to strategic planning. The results are predictable: clear, measurable outcomes; tight, pithy vision statement; focused strategy targeting a clear and "directable" organizational culture. But these assumptions don't fit the higher education planning environment, with many parallel lines of activity, complex vision, and an environment that is often far more self-directed. This week on the show, we bring you part one of our conversation with John Eldert, Vice President of Administration at Berklee College of Music as he joins Howard Teibel to discuss their work on adapting the business approach to strategic planning for higher education.
