Budgeting, Planning, and Continuous Improvement

As a part of the ongoing improvement opportunities at OBU, we have developed a series of procedures related to Strategic Planning, Budgeting and Planning, and Continuous Improvement.

Strategic Planning

The Strategic Planning process is an ongoing process that was renewed with the arrival of our current president, Dr. David Whitlock. In a collaborative effort with stakeholders from across the campus, the University Planning and Advisory Council identified seven strategic initiatives, which can be found elsewhere on OBU's website.

Annually, however, the institution develops focused objectives for the University through a process that is identified in this document.

Planning and Budgeting

In addition to the high-level planning of a strategic nature, OBU also has an ongoing Planning and Budgeting process that is spelled out in this document.

Continuous Improvement

As an excellence driven organization, OBU strives to improve on an ongoing basis. We do that using strategic improvement, which entails various streams of influence and formation. We also do that through response to events, as through the continuous improvement procedure linked here.
