Development of Goals
PBSC reviews the recommended SMART goals submitted by the strategic planning groups to ensure that they are correctly constructed and forwards them to the Consultation Council.  The Consultation Council will review and revise the goals, determine which ones will be retained, prioritize them, and then return them to the SPGs for further action. 
Strategy Development
The strategic planning groups will develop specific strategies for the attainment of each of the prioritized goals. Once developed, the strategies will be added to the Strategic Planning Goals and Strategies Form and forwarded to the PBSC for review and forwarding to Consultation Council.
Finalizing the Strategic Plan
Once the Strategic Plan is finalized and approved, it will be published for distribution and posted on the Saddleback College web site.
The implementation of the Strategic Plan will begin with budget decisions for the following academic year. All resource allocation requests will be submitted to the PBSC for review before forwarding to the Consultation Council for action recommendations.
Annual Strategic Plan and Budget Workshop
During the fall in-service each year, the PBSC will conduct a strategic plan and budget workshop, presenting an overview of the approved strategic plan, outlining the different categories of budget allocations, and giving a breakdown of spending and available funds for the current academic year.

Annual Assessment and Review
On an annual basis, the PBSC will:

  • Review resources and make recommendations for the college budget based on principles and practices set forth in the College Budget Development Manual and in alignment with the Strategic Plan.
  • Notify the college community of funding appropriations and direction for expenditures in accordance with the Strategic Plan.
  • Monitor budget and resources to ensure success of the strategic planning process.
  • Complete an Annual Review of the Strategic Plan in the spring of each year, and make suggestions to the CC for reprioritizing of goals and strategies.
