For this week’s assignment, compare and contrast the two plans (Alabama State University and Northwestern University – both attached) in terms of:
- Environmental scanning: What information is included in the plan that provides context to the university’s current and future situation? Did the university conduct any kind of environmental scanning as part of the planning process? If so, what?
- Identification and organization of goals, objectives, and/or action steps.
- Your assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of the above elements of the plan as evidenced by the documents.
