From vision to reality
SU will follow up NTNU’s vision, strategy and main priorities through the strategy Knowledge for a Better Society. The Faculty’s strategy is specified in a multi-year action plan revised annually in connection with preparation of the Faculty’s budget. The action plan sets out priorities, instruments and measures that will be implemented to achieve the development goals in the strategy. The plan includes indicators to evaluate results. Resources are allocated through principles laid down in the Faculty’s model for further distribution (VFM). Strategic human resources planning will govern recruitment and will be an important tool for skills development, recruitment and allocation of resources.
Strategies for the departments are developed within the framework of NTNU’s and the Faculty’s strategy. The Faculty’s strategy underpins the departments’ strategies by facilitating and supporting academic development. The Faculty’s management prioritizes areas of focus, manages administrative support functions and skills, coordinates common development initiatives, specifies quality requirements, and allocates strategic funds and recruitment positions through transparent processes.
