Dear Colleagues, The first three Straight Talks on UHN's five-year Strategic Plan, which will take us to 2016, provided you with an overview of the work that has been done this past summer. Now that we have shared the Environmental Scan and Corporate Framework with you, I want to describe the next steps in this process. UHN's Strategic Plan should answer three questions for everyone in the organization: Where are we now? Where do we want to be by 2016? How do we get there? At UHN we have worked hard to develop an inclusive culture that engages our patients, family and staff in our plans. Henry Mintzberg, an internationally renowned professor on business and management from McGill University, suggests that this type of strategic planning is a collaborative process that builds on our existing vision and purpose and ensures understanding of the chosen direction by as many members of the organization as possible. In short, we will build our UHN strategic directions from the goals developed from our Programs, as well as goals developed by Senior Management and our Clinical Support and Corporate areas. To read more about UHN's philosophy and approach to Strategic Planning please refer to the attached UHN Strategic Planning Methodology document. To provide feedback and to learn more about Strategic Planning at UHN, please visit the UHN Strategic Planning webpage on the Corporate Intranet. I see UHN's new strategic plan taking shape over four phases: Phase 1: Reflection, Visioning and Information Gathering (by April 2010) Phase 2: Draft UHN Plan (by June 2010) Phase 3: Internal and External Consultation (by September 2010) Phase 4: Finalization and Public Release (by December 2010) Over the next few weeks, I will be visiting each site for a Town Hall on Strategic Planning. I encourage you to attend one of the dates below so that you can find out more about this process and how you can get involved.
