Institute of Applied Sciences Holds Strategic Planning Workshop

IAS SP Workshop Participants

Staff members of the Institute of Applied Sciences held a planning workshop on 19 December 2016 to review the IAS Strategic Plan (SP) 2014 – 2016 and formulate the strategic plan for the next five years.

Held at Uduya Point  in Lami, the workshop also served as a retreat for staff as it fostered  openness, trust and creativity and encouraged  the staff members to be clearer about the Institute’s strategies and objectives.

The workshop participants:

  • Reviewed the IAS SP 2014 – 16 Plan for which 85% of the KPIs were achieved.
  • Review the Vision, Mission, Values Statement for the Institute
  • Renamed the identified Strategic Results Areas and Sections in line with the proposed revised Organisational Structure
  • Formulated new strategies & lines of actions in response to pressing regional needs, stakeholders feedback and business acumen

The new IAS SP also intends to strengthen the foundation of IAS as a sustainable and successful Institute through robust governance and administrative arrangements, operations efficiency and technical leadership.  This would be achieved through focussing on IAS’s unique and recognised strengths – the rich collective body of knowledge; a genuine commitment to challenge ordinary thinking; and a candid desire to improve the lives and well-being of people in the region.

The plan also serves as a platform upon which IAS staff can develop their annual work plans to align with the goals and objectives of the IAS SP 2017-2021 as well as the USP SP 2013 – 2018.

Dr Johann, the Director of IAS said that the new Strategic Plan 2017-2021 is aspirational and aims to position IAS as the Institute of excellence in the Pacific region and a leading one internationally.

The successful implementation of this plan will ensure that IAS continues to effectively and competently provide professional scientific services to meet the development needs of the region.
