Strategic Planning


To articulate the UM Transformation Plan, UM created its second strategic plan, which covers the period between 2016-2020. This new plan incorporates recently-introduced strategies under the UM Transformation Plan which aimed at achieving financial stability, higher impact research outputs, greater collaboration with world-renowned institutions of higher learning and generally higher performance all round. A committee was appointed to relook at all the KPIs.

As part of ongoing efforts to keep the strategic plan dynamic, a group of strategic thinkers was formed as part of the Corporate Planning Unit’s efforts to keep the plan current. A scheduled strategic review is being planned every 6-12 months to review progress made. In line with these efforts, the Corporate Planning Unit has been restructured to become the Global Planning and Strategy Centre with expanded scope and functions. The strategic planning process has been demonstrated to many auditors such as MQA Audit and Transformation Plan for Apex University.
