Strategic implementation process

Strategic implementation process

The Strategic Plan provides a roadmap to achieve a set of goals, deliver value, and succeed as a critical stakeholder in Malta’s education sector. The plan is just the beginning of the journey.

In the implementation process, the University is engaging in an intensive exercise that turns strategic objectives into actions in order to achieve the vision and mission it has developed with students, staff and social partners.

For the strategy to be implemented, the University will engage in best practices pertaining to:

  • Communicating the content, principles and objectives of the University’s strategy to the stakeholders of each strategic activity
  • Addressing the who, where, when and how of each strategic objective
  • Managing the pillars of implementation in terms of people, resources, structure, systems, and culture
  • Creating clear ownership and accountability for strategic initiatives
  • Empowering implementers with authority, responsibility and the tools required
  • Linking employee incentives to the strategy
  • Linking budgeting to the strategy
  • Integrating the Strategic Plan with day-to-day administrative activities
  • Tracking progress and engaging in review and discussion on implementation at regular intervals, through monthly strategy meetings on each Strategic Theme, as well as an annual strategic review

The implementation of the Strategic Plan is reviewed on an ongoing basis each semester and reported to the University Strategy Steering Committee, Senate, Council as well as the wider University community of students and staff.






The Strategic Development Process for the University of Malta is organised by the team dedicated to Strategic Planning and Enterprise. We constantly seek feedback to improve and evolve our strategic planning process, whilst identifying opportunities to assist students and staff in meeting University's objectives.
