Surviving COVID-19 with a Performance Based Strategic Plan (fee based)

October 13 at 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Providing evidence as to whether or not an institution is achieving its mission is crucial for students, parents, and stakeholders across higher education, and is central to MSCHE standards. The COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on higher education only strengthens the need to reassure constituents that an institution is able to achieve its mission even in these unprecedented times. This webinar will draw on the experience of the Community College of Beaver County (CCBC) and will help attendees understand processes to develop key performance indicators (KPIs) reflective of clear and simple metrics.

By first identifying the four metrics that would function as KPIs, key to the mission of the institution, CCBC flipped the paradigm on its head. CCBC first started with the metrics, and then built their strategic plan around these metrics. By focusing on four key metrics, CCBC has developed a strategic plan that can be summarized in one page, but also allows for consistent performance assessment at all levels of the institution. Additionally, these KPIs align directly with the performance review of staff and administrators. Having this elegant and comprehensive approach to measuring the success of the institution were an invaluable resource while navigating COVID-19.

Learning Outcomes

  1. Understand the importance of having clear and simple metrics
  2. Understand the process taken to develop and implement a confined set of KPIs
  3. Understand the utility of KPIs during difficult times.
