PQA – Strategic Planning at Curtin Malaysia

Strategic Planning at Curtin Sarawak

The CSM Strategic Plan with its appropriate goals and objectives provides oversight and guidance to organizational units to support the Campus towards its vision and mission. The Strategic Plan 2010 – 2013 includes the Campus Critical Success Factors (CSFs) and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). The CSFs are the essential elements which are vital to the success of the Campus and the KPIs reflect the successful outcomes of these fundamental factors. Hence, the KPIs were built from the CSFs to ensure that only progress and achievements that really matter are measured and tracked.
