BIOTECH Conducts Strategic Planning Workshop


BIOTECH UPLB held a strategic planning workshop to formulate its operational plan for the next five years. A pre-workshop and post-workshop session were held. The activity was initiated by Dr. Rosario G. Monsalud, BIOTECH's new Director, with funding support from Chancellor Fernando Sanchez. In keeping with her administration’s goal of being consultative, all Program Leaders and Project Leaders were involved. Laboratory technicians and administrative staff were represented as well.

The facilitator was Mr. Christopher Lomboy, a graduate of UPLB who then finished a management course at the Asian Institute of Management (AIM). He also facilitated planning workshops for UPLB itself and for other UPLB units.

Vice Chancellor for Research and Extension, Prof. Rex. B. Demafelis, said during the workshop that participation has a big effect on the ownership of the program of the Institute. He further said that the important thing is to have focus.

After introducing BIOTECH staff to management concepts, the scale-up time of the technologies were analyzed. A SWOT analysis was then conducted to formulate the Operational Plan of the Institute. BIOTECH then revised future Programs and Projects based on the formulated Operational Plan.
