The Institute has created the Strategy document through a detailed consultation process with stakeholders during 2015-2017. An Institute Strategy and Planning Committee (ISPC) was constituted in 2015 with key Institute leaders and faculty representatives. The ISPC prepared a draft strategy document with a new vision, mission, goals and action items. The draft document was presented by the Director in an open meeting with students, staff and faculty on 30th November 2016. This was followed by months of stakeholder feedback – survey questionnaires, focus group meetings with students, new faculty and staff. The document was discussed in department faculty meetings and alumni inputs were taken. The document was significantly modified to take into account the inputs received. The revised document was presented to the Board of Governors and their suggestions incorporated in the final document. The Institute Strategy document has a plan for the ten identified goals for five years, action items and metrics. The Strategy document process has created a participatory process for involving stakeholders in the visioning and planning process of the Institute and a dialogue and excitement for meeting future challenges.
Three documents were prepared during the process of formulating the strategies for the Institute. The Strategic Plan (2017-22) is the result of a comprehensive consultation process across the institute community and reflect their input as ten goals for five years, action items and metrics; the Supplementary Document reviews the previous strategy documents, outlines the strategic planning process and illustrates the SWOT matrix of the Institute; and the Stakeholders' Feedback reports the result of the inputs taken from the students, faculty, staff and alumni through online surveys, focus group discussions and DFMs etc.The details of the three documents can be viewed here:
