LTV Faculty Strategy 2017-2020

Last changed: 24 March 2017

Here you can follow the process of developing a new strategy and action plan for LTV Faculty for the period 2017 - 2020.

Why do we do this?

The LTV Faculty Strategy 2017-2020 builds on SLU’s strategy 2017-2020 as well as the former Faculty Strategy for the period 2014-2016. The Faculty Board has decided that the objectives and general themes and development areas of the strategy shall be translated into an action plan with concrete projects.

For a strategy to be successful, the employees’ active participation in the strategic work is absolutely critical. One of our objectives in this strategy is to promote a high level of participation in decision-making processes. We hope that this project will be a good example of that.

There is no one who is more familiar than you with your work situation and what possibilities and obstacles you see for being able to contribute to a development in line with the faculty strategy. We therefore wish that you, based on the objectives and themes in the strategy, share the thoughts and ideas you have about what can be done within the LTV Faculty to achieve greater success.

The ideas will be compiled, structured and made available for all employees. They will be the most important basis for the leaders when the faculty action plan is created.

We hope you want to participate and look forward to your suggestions!
