To create greater awareness of the process and transparency regarding how decisions are made at the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy, particularly with the rollout of the School’s BEYOND Strategic Plan, we have developed a Decision Matrix. The Decision Matrix, which can be found below and downloaded,  was developed based on input from Division and Unit leads, Standing Committee Chairs and Co-Chairs, the Executive Committee and the Dean’s Council. This document will evolve with continued and ongoing input from the School community, as we utilize these processes.

To utilize the Decision Matrix below, choose the domain that best represents your new initiative or proposed change. From there, contact the group(s) who are responsible for making recommendations and approvals in this area to discuss. Individuals and groups responsible for making recommendations should ensure all relevant stakeholders have been consulted before presenting to the relevant decision-making body.

An important initiative of the BEYOND Strategic Plan is to improve our “go to market” practices for new initiatives and partnerships.  As part of this initiative, we have created a Go to Market Strategy Guide.  The guide provides a consistent process and set of frameworks that will help IDENTIFY, DISCOVER, EVALUATE and ACT on initiatives that are consistent with our strategic plan and require resources to implement.

Please use the guide to help develop any proposal you would like the Dean’s Council to review.  If the proposal is approved, the guide will also provide a framework for developing Go to Market plans to launch and manage the strategic initiative.

Creating a common understanding and language regarding a Go to Market Strategy will ensure that your IDEAs are fully considered, efficiently analyzed, and have the highest probability of success.  If you have any comments or questions about this Go to Market Strategy Guide please feel free to contact Stan Parker, Senior Director, Communications and Marketing or Chris Gosk, Director, Organizational Effectiveness Planning and Assessment.
