Administration & Finance 2018
It is with pride and enthusiasm that we present the Administration and Finance (A&F) strategic plan. This plan embodies our dedication to excellence in support of the university’s mission, today and into the future. Our intention was to develop a bold plan to transform A&F into a forward-leaning organization, positioned to provide service excellence and strategic leadership for the university. Cal Poly is not an institution that relies on the status quo, and our plan reflects the spirit of innovation and action that is at the heart of our Learn by Doing philosophy. Our strategic plan aspires to adopt exceptional, yet achievable goals.
The A&F strategic planning effort has been a vital and dynamic activity. This strategic plan is a collective effort of more than 300 A&F and Cal Poly employees, which included listening sessions, extensive outreach and collaborative workshops designed to elicit customer and employee feedback and explore internal operational insight. This input coalesced into a vision with A&F as a strategic partner focused on providing world-class service to the campus. It establishes direction and empowers all staff and management to participate and assume greater responsibility for establishing and achieving our goals.
Completion of our strategic plan is very important, but it is just the start. A&F will wholeheartedly endeavor to achieve the ambitious goals established in the plan. Each unit within A&F will develop their own plan to incorporate strategic directions, tactical goals and operational metrics in support of the overall A&F strategic plan with a commitment to illuminate our vision, unify our efforts and Lead by Doing.
