BUE Planning Cycle

BUE Planning Cycle

The BUE is envisioned, as   an interactive process that accepts inputs that could be classified into students, staff, physical resources and programmes.  These inputs interact within the BUE system, under any given programme, and results in a set of outcomes on a daily, weekly, semester and yearly basis.  The process is being monitored through the measurement of key performance indicators in order to reveal an image of the BUE effectiveness and performance and use this image in improving the performance of the BUE at two main levels.  The first is an annual level that is achieved through the improvement of individual implementation plans and the second is achieved through the improvement of the next strategic plan at the end of the strategic planning term.

Biannual Implementation Planning Cycle

This cycle constitutes the fundamental planning mechanism within the BUE system that drives all subsequent planning activities and decisions.  The cycle is completed twice every year to capture the BUE's performance throughout the two main semesters, i.e., Autumn and Spring.  The cycle is driven by input factors which comprise students, staff, physical resources and programmes.  Key performance indicators are evaluated twice as indicated above.  Such indicators are classified into three main categories, based on the type of activity and/or service the BUE is offering, namely, teaching & learning, research and enterprise & community service.

Full Term Strategic Planning Cycle

The full term planning cycle is conducted at the completion of the strategic plan term.  Currently, the BUE is following a five-year strategic plan term.  During the five year term, annual implementation cycles are expected to have been conducted and resulted in updates to some or all of the three action plans, namely, teaching & learning, research and enterprise & community service.  Such amendments, updates and recommendations shall be grouped under main categories such as: proposals, new targets, amendments, etc.  Such recommendations are then normally employed in informing the development of the new strategic plan for the following five-year term.  This set of recommendations and proposals is usually directed to the strategic planning committee, where further in-depth discussions regarding the implications of such recommendations are considered and reflected in the new strategic plan.
