Strategic Plan

Our Next Plan

2025 - 2030

Lambton College is in the process of developing our new Strategic Plan, which will guide us from 2025 to 2030. This is an important project for our College as we redefine who we are, where we want to go, and what goals we plan to achieve.

We value the input of our diverse stakeholder groups consisting of college administrators, faculty, staff, students, and community partners. All feedback, advice, and insight gathered will be analyzed to identify the College’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats, to align the future vision, mission, values, and commitments to common goals and objectives. By involving you in the planning process, we can ensure that our college is responsive, relevant, and resilient in the face of changing circumstances.

Our strategic planning is about managing change and making decisions today that will shape our future. In order to get there, we need to ask ourselves:

  • Where is Lambton now?
  • Where do we want Lambton to be?
  • How will Lambton get there?

This consultation phase is crucial to helping us achieve our goals because it:

  • Establishes and clarifies our values, mission, goals, and future vision, and communicates them clearly.
  • Sets priorities, aligns the organization, and fosters shared ownership.
  • Aligns resources to priority areas.
  • Enables Lambton to build our team (inside and out) and our expertise.
  • Fosters relationships and creates accountability.

Once Lambton’s new Strategic Plan has been developed, it will serve as a map, guiding us on a united path toward our future.

Our Partner

Lambton College is thrilled to be collaborating with StrategyCorp Inc. in the creation of our new Strategic Plan.

StrategyCorp’s method involves iterative engagement of all stakeholders, which is crucial for the success of our Strategic Plan. This engagement ensures that our new plan won’t just “sit on a shelf” but becomes an integral part of our corporate culture informing our decisions and holding us accountable to our Lambton College community through performance measurement and regular progress reporting

StrategyCorp's Five Principles of Strategic Planning

  1. A plan that is strategic (not an operating plan)
  2. A plan that is authentic to Lambton College
  3. A plan that will be implemented (not sit on the shelf)
  4. A plan that has direction and actionable specifics informed by capacity and resources
  5. A plan that has the confidence of Lambton College's key stakeholders

Consultations

With the support of StrategyCorp, we are committed to crafting a strategic plan that resonates with the core values and ambitions of our community. To achieve this, we will be conducting a series of engaging virtual focus group sessions and in-person drop-in engagement sessions designed to foster meaningful discussions and collaborative idea sharing.
