Strategic Plan for the University of Kansas Medical Center

KUMC Strategic Plan Progress January 2013 click for more information

In December 2010, the University of Kansas Medical Center community embarked on an intensive strategic planning effort. Hundreds of participants created a strategic map to achieve one overarching goal: Provide leadership to shape the future of health and health care. The map also included nine other mission-specific and institutional goals. We have updated this page to report on our progress as of January 2013.

KUMC Strategic Map 2013

The Strategic Map for the University of Kansas Medical Center summarizes KUMC's strategy for 2011 through 2016. This strategy includes the following key elements:

  • The central challenge, depicted as an oval at the top of the map, is the focal point of KUMC's strategy: "Provide leadership to shape the future of health and health care."
  • KUMC's goals, depicted in bold under the central challenge, are critical to meeting the central challenge.
  • KUMC's strategies, depicted in boxes under each goal, describe the key approaches that will be taken to achieve each goal.
  • Three cross-cutting goals along the bottom of the strategic map differ from those at the top of the strategic map in two ways:
    • They appear at the bottom of the strategic map to show they are foundational to the strategy.
    • They span the strategic map from left to right in order to indicate that efforts to implement the cross-cutting priority need to be embedded in efforts to implement the other six strategic priorities at the top of the map.
