About the Strategic Planning Initiative
The strategic planning process has engaged the college community in shaping De Anza's future. Through a process called story-based planning, more than 80 faculty, staff and administrators have worked on the development of a long-range strategic plan that will guide the college through the next decade. This critical initiative will help clarify and affirm the college's values and define its role in this region. It will address many factors that affect students and De Anza, such as technology, economy, and changing demographics. This site provides information about the planning process and will enable you to follow the development of the Strategic Plan.

What Is Story-Based Planning?
Story-based planning is a new technique for strategic planning and execution that takes into account the many uncertainties that are the reality of today's world. The central theme of story-based planning is that organizations must change the way they think about and plan for the future. Story-based strategy both confronts and deals with uncertainty and leads to a strategy that is focused but resilient, specific but flexible. It also deals with cultural and organizational changes that an organization must undertake to maximize the benefits of the stories that are created.
