Stevens Strategy provided an analytical review of all academic and non-academic revenue generating programs at Johnson C. Smith University that engaged faculty, staff, alumni and trustees in the process. The program review process had four key analytic components: Mission-Centeredness, Quality and Marketability reviews based in part on Stevens Strategy survey research and a Responsibility Center Data-based Analysis conducted by Stevens Strategy. Johnson C. Smith University was able to optimize its program offerings, make significant shifts in institutional quality and achieve multi-million dollar improvements in financial performance.
Hiring Stevens Strategy to facilitate the comprehensive academic review at JCSU was an inspired decision. They were instrumental in assisting the University to undertake an important and critical institutional activity which will ultimately position the University to be a high performing institution with a bright and certain future. This process was rigorous and time consuming and Stevens Strategy was there consistently providing the expertise and guidance that was required for a successful outcome. John was completely available and knowledgeable and respected the institutional culture of JCSU. I would gladly hire Stevens Strategy again to engage in a similar undertaking.
