Title of the Lecture:

Key Steps in Strategic Planning: Processes, Actors, and Leadership



Strategic planning is a management technique used around the world and by organizations in every sector. The entities that apply strategic planning can benefit from its capacity to adequately adjust the objectives of a project or program to an organization’s environmental conditions and internal availability of technologies, economic resources and appropriate human capital. Planning provides a script by which the actors and resources come on stage with a specific role to play at a specific time, which gives cohesion to organization. However, application experiences do not always achieve the desired outcomes, which makes it necessary to study the factors that determine success. As part of the conference on the internationalization of education, this talk provides an overview of the basic concepts of strategic planning, with special attention to the study of the context, the orientation of the project, and the cohesion and leadership of those involved in its implementation. The author’s research informs a review of the key factors that can either obstruct or guarantee the success of the project.
