Beginning in August, Administration and Finance (A&F) will launch our strategic planning process. The division-level strategic plan will clarify A&F's contribution to the Institute goals and describe our priorities for the next 5 years. Our plan will clearly articulate A&F's unique contribution to the new Georgia Tech strategic plan and include a detailed implementation plan that describes how each unit will contribute. The goals is to develop and implement the plan by the end of this calendar year, with an aim to complete the draft plan within 3 months.
Once complete, the strategic plan for A&F will become an integral part of the budgeting process for the next fiscal year as well as shape the performance goals for A&F employees in the next calendar year.
Kelly Fox, executive vice president for Administration and Finance, will be actively involved in the process as the project sponsor and champion. In addition, the planning process will be facilitated by Georgia Tech Strategic Consulting. A 12-member steering committee will be selected to shape the process and draft the plan. This committee will hold their kick-off meeting on August 6 and meet every Thursday afternoon through the fall.
A&F staff members who are interested in being considered for this Strategic Plan Steering Committee are invited to apply. Applications will be accepted through July 24. You are encouraged to apply today!
Members will be selected to achieve a committee that represents a diverse set of perspectives including:
- Range of levels of responsibility (individual contributors, team leaders, supervisors, managers, directors)
- Service to the Institute (newer employees and those who have been here for some time)
- Representation from each A&F unit: Campus Services; Real Estate Development; Finance and Planning; Human Resources; Information Technology; and Sustainability, Facilities and Safety
- Gender balance
- Racial and ethnic diversity
Everyone in the A&F will have opportunities to provide input throughout the process.
