McMaster's Strategic Research Plan
Research Enterprise Strategy Map
McMaster’s Research Enterprise is composed of several important areas whose expertise, diligence, and complexity determine the great level of success we celebrate today. In order to strategically analyze, capture, and carefully reflect upon the important work of all component areas, we need an integrated view.
Our vision must cover the scope of the entire Research Enterprise, in support of the University as a whole. In an attempt to provide a balanced and multi-dimensional view, a small team has been consulting and working to build a Strategy Map for the Research Enterprise.
The Strategy Map is meant to be a living, dynamic document that reflects our vision, mission, and key goals. It will have an important role in clarifying our vision and mission, and in translating our broad strategies for achieving goals into a set of critical objectives. In addition, the Strategy Map can align activities and resources with strategic priorities, encourage dialogue, provide a shared understanding of activities, and serve as a useful tool for clear communication to all our diverse units.
It is no accident that “People” appear at the foundation of the Strategy Map structure. The research world is one of increasing complexity. We have assembled a team of professional staff who partner with our research community, providing ongoing support in several important areas. Their work is invaluable. Together with our talented researchers, they all provide the crucial foundation of the entire Research Enterprise. Without them, it would not be possible to attain the formidable success to date, or enjoy the significant achievements we know will be realized as we journey forward.
