2020 Strategy in the Real World #2 SW:E


 From No Strategy to Metrics-Driven Strategy in 1 Year

IWU did not have a salient strategic plan.  Determined to have a strategy focused on results, we selected a tool and a partner  (Paterson), developed the initial framework and Playbook, hired a Chief Strategy Officer and turned our focus around. We now have a results drive, metrics focused process that creates action through a rigorous cadence of accountability that sets us apart from most of higher education.
