​​Strategic Master Plan Development Process Timeline

April 7, 2011 – The Planning and Budget Committee voted to hire KH Consulting Group (KH) to facilitate the process for developing strategic plan for the 2012-2015 period.

May 2011 – Nine focus groups were conducted with faculty, staff, and administrators in which the colleges’ current vision and mission statements, mission statement responses from program review, current core values, and core value responses from program review, were reviewed and input was gathered.

June 8, 2011 – An open forum session was conducted with faculty as part of the annual professional development day (e.g., Flex Day) with the same topics of the May focus groups.  Participants voted on the values they preferred and the most-chosen values were discussed further.  In addition a survey was conducted to assess the importance and effectiveness of key strategic areas of the college and results were used to complete a strategic priority gap analysis and strategic areas were selected for further review and dialogue.

Summer 2011 – KH reviewed numerous LATTC program review, planning, and research documents; conducted an external environmental scan and SWOC (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Challenges) analysis; and provided several planning process overviews and updates to the Planning and Budget Committee (at the August 15, 2011 PBC meeting) and senior staff.

August 25, 2011 – A brief overview of the planning process and planning activities, to date, was provided by KH.  A visioning exercise that engaged all participants in writing newspaper stories of LATTC’s preferred vision was conducted.  Four potential mission statements and several potential core values were presented and voted upon.  And a survey was conducted to assess the importance and effectiveness of strategic areas of the college (e.g. course offerings, student retention, morale, funding/budget, etc.) and the results were used to complete a strategic priority gap analysis.  Based on the responses on the survey, strategic areas were selected for further discussion at the faculty professional development day the following day.

August 26, 2011 – The results of the strategic priority gap from the August 25, 2011 faculty convocation were presented to faculty, staff, and administrators.  To organize the discussion, KH provided participants the opportunity to vote on the strategic priorities they felt were most important at LATTC.  Based on the voting results, the number of strategic priorities was narrowed down to four.

September 22, 2011 – KH facilitated an open-forum discussion as part of the LATTC staff convocation.  Similar to the August 26th planning session, KH provided participants the opportunity to vote on and then discuss the strategic priorities they felt were most important at LATTC.
