Institutional master planning is composed of three phases -assessment or self-study, institutional goal setting, and strategic institutional planning.

Hedy A. Hartman and Suzanne B. Schell provide detailed explanations of what each phase entails with tips and techniques for carrying out the planning process.

They overview how to conduct a self-study and use the results, steps for pre-planning, determining how staff and board will carry out each part of the plan, and the components of the formal report. They also address concerns such as determining the right timing for beginning planning and publicizing the results of the assessment and recommendations.
