Strategic Planning & Implementation

manion-andrew-250x300.jpg"Going into the process, I already had a plan in mind toward which I intended to steer the conversation. After engaging the leadership team, the campus community, and the Board of Trustees, we produced a plan that was much improved over what I had originally thought it would be. Our plan is better than my original ideas, and with everyone weighing in, it became Marian’s strategic plan, not just mine."

                                 President Andrew Manion, Marian University


How can you create long-lasting, innovative change on your campus?

Strategic planning has been traditionally a dull, drawn-out process with no community engagement and few end results. We’ve turned the out-of-date planning model on its head and created a data-driven, action-oriented planning experience that meets your campus where you are, and takes you where you want to be, incorporating wide-reaching community buy-in and infusing your input with best- and next-practices.

Your strategic plan comes alive when you work with Credo: 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, data, and software to track your progress and make sure you’re implementing your initiatives and successfully meeting your objectives over time.

Get on track or move further ahead than you thought possible by creating and implementing a strategic plan that will impact your institution’s culture of innovation, habit of reflection and intentionality, and net revenue and strategic finance. Transform your entire campus with a tangible vision for success and empower your leadership, faculty, staff, and students to fully live out your mission.

Ready for real change? Let’s get started.

Outcomes of the Credo planning process include:

  • Insights on strategic direction from campus leadership.
  • Your plan is informed by insights and direction from the campus community.
  • Mission, vision, values, and strategic direction translated onto a one-page strategy map.
  • Your plan drives action in implementation via ongoing support and the Thriving Scorecard.
