|Strategic Planning Policy
Strategic planning is an organization's process of
defining its strategy, or direction, and making
decisions on allocating its resources to pursue this
strategy, including its capital and people. UBID’s Board
of Trustees has a pivotal role in establishing a
strategic plan that will serve to guide our
accomplishment of priorities as we move forward.
Progress will be reviewed periodically and an annual
report of results will be made at the AGM. Annual
updates will ensure that the plan reflects current
priorities. We will undertake a formal review of the
plan itself every three years.
