UON Corporate Planning Cycle
In 2012, the University reviewed its corporate planning cycle to ensure alignment with the Institutional Strategic Plan, and area strategic/operational plans. This includes an annual review of corporate performance against the agreed targets in the Strategic Plan.
The UON Corporate Planning Cycle brings together the strategic and operational planning activities at the Institution, Faculty/Division and Unit level. Strategic level activities involve a whole of institution perspective to setting the strategic objectives and tracking performance, whereas operational level activities focus on the progress and performance of an individual Faculty, Division or Unit.
The Corporate Planning Cycle works alongside the University's rolling triennial plan to monitor and adjust the path of the Institution, Faculties and Divisions to achieve the Vision for 2025.
The Corporate Planning Cycle has a continuous improvement process of implementation, review, and improvement. This process targets the timing of data availability of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and targets, and the content of reports for internal committees, government reporting and benchmarking requirements. An ancillary Annual Corporate Planning Calendar is released each year. The calendar details key dates of Committee and Council meetings, to increase the efficiency and flow of information across the University.
The Institution Corporate Plan considers the priorities in the Strategic Plan in the context of the current climate and environmental scan and provides detail on how the strategies will be implemented, by whom and with what resources. The focus of Faculty/Division Corporate Plans is on localised implementation of strategies to support the Institution Corporate Plan.
The Corporate Performance Report provides an annual assessment of performance in the previous calendar year against targets. The Corporate Performance Report is presented for endorsement at the May meeting of Council.
