SCUP Book | The Human Side of the Strategic Planning Process in Higher Education

SCUP Book | The Human Side of the Strategic Planning Process in Higher Education | SCUP Links | Scoop.it

Very few, if any, organizations operate with anything remotely resembling clockwork precision. As for stability, many organizations need to regularly adapt new practices just to maintain their status quo. Higher education institutions, perhaps more than other organizations, need to consistently practice adaptability to remain competitive and relevant.


SCUP Planning Institute faculty trainer, Robert P. Delprino, has drawn on his education, professional life, and experience as an institute faculty member to write a book every planner should read. “Change is a people process; the strategic planning process is not a solitary activity but one that involves a number of players. Its success depends on the individuals and groups who participate in the plan’s development, application, and evaluation.”

Society for College and University Planning (SCUP)'s insight:

A benefit of SCUP membership. Also available for others as an inexpensive download. Combine it with another SCUP book, A Practical Guide to Strategic Planning in Higher Education by Karen Hinton and you have a reference for your committees.

Dear Committee Members: A novel containing only faculty letters of recommendation?

Dear Committee Members: A novel

From a review in Inside Higher Ed: "'It's a difficult time in higher education,' Schumacher said, 'and I hope the book points that out in a way that's not painfully moralistic.'


Far from it: from the satirical perspective of the aggrieved Fitger, Schumacher delineates very real problems and renders them hilarious without trivializing their human impact. Readers who are themselves tasked with writing entirely too many letters of recommendation may well wish they could write some like Fitger's; failing that, they are likely to enjoy reading his."

Society for College and University Planning (SCUP)'s insight:

"By the novel's end, no solutions have been offered nor any problems solved."
