This volume is the second in a series of four publications related to a project on the creation of a Regional University Network on Governance and Management of Higher Education in South East Europe. It consists of a concise presentation of the nuts and bolts of strategic planning and management in higher education. The book takes the reader through a set of definitions of the subject to a look at different approaches to planning, to focus on how to plan and develop operation strategies. The second half of the volume presents examples of good practice, ranging from selected mission statements to the strategic plan and planning cycle of two universities. Strategic planning and management are considered at various levels: the whole institution, the faculty, the department or school, the subject group or research group, and the individual. The chapters are: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "Governments and Higher Education"; (3) "Structure and Process"; (4) "How To Plan"; and (5) "Operational Strategies." Appendixes contain descriptions of mission statements, strategic plans, learning and teaching strategies, governance and policy making, and plans in Romanian universities. (Contains 9 figures, 4 tables, and 77 references.) (SLD)
