Strategic Planning & Implementation
We don’t just help you build a plan, we stay with you as you implement it
The Credo strategic plan is flexible, adaptable, and iterative. We can lay our process into any existing plan at any point in your planning or implementation process. Combined with your insider ideas, we’ll provide diagnostic tools and data to track your progress and make sure you’re implementing your initiatives and meeting your objectives over time.
What Makes a Credo Strategic Plan Unique?
The Thriving Framework
This research-based framework was developed through years of higher education consulting and more than 200 strategy discussions with college and university presidents.
A Visual Strategy Map
Based off the Thriving Scorecard, your map will be a hybrid of the Thriving Framework and Kaplan and Norton’s Balanced Scorecard research, which is used exclusively in higher education and developed by Credo.
The Credo team will work with you to develop dashboards, track progress, and tie in Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) in a seamless manner for ease of management and reporting.
STRATEGIC PLANNING with Credo is an adaptive, community-engaged experience that leverages institutional strengths for growth and change. The partnership:
- Results in a campus-owned, Credo-supported, action-oriented plan.
- Nurtures a culture of planning rather than define an episode of planning.
- Guides plans that are KPI-aligned and measurable at all levels.
- Builds campus capacity for strategic action while offering increased accountability toward goals.

Credo was able to quickly read the institution and help craft the right questions to frame our strategic planning work. Utilizing the community day approach, they were careful to listen to everyone, regardless of role at the institution. This set the stage for widespread buy-in among faculty and staff and moved toward a culture of planning with committees who took ownership of initiatives.Colleen Perry Keith, Ph.D. President, Goldey-Beacom College
