Case Study

Developing a Strategic Plan for a Third Level Educational Institution, Dundalk Institute of Technology, Ireland

The Challenge

This tertiary level education institution provides the Irish community with quality third level education and services. We were asked to work with them to develop a 5 year strategic plan for the college which would build on the existing approach and plan.

What We Did

We adopted a highly participative approach working with large groups of staff and students to build support and also challenge the status quo.  We carried out similar exercises with bothstaff and students, and were able to provide a strong reality check of how the current situation was seen and future aspirations interpreted.





"Our organisation contracted with This Is to facilitate the generation of its second Strategic Plan. The relationship proved both excellent and productive. The company's personnel were flexible in response to our needs, resourceful in responding to the various challenges involved in the process and skilful in devising effective strategies for its different elements." Organisation Development Project Manager, 2006

"Terri and Richard did an insightful and challenging facilitation exercise with the staff representative group and student focus groups - superbly supported by Aileen"
