dc.description.abstract The primary purpose of this study was to assess the implementation of the Strategic Plan (2011-2015) of the University of Namibia. It was also the objective of this study to establish what measures were put in place to ensure the implementation of the strategic plan and to provide recommendations on improving the implementation of the strategic planning process. The case study applied the mixed methods research approach. The study utilised the survey method for the quantitative approach and interviews for the qualitative approach. The population of the study was 689 and the sample size was 239, which was selected using MEDLAB computer software sampling technique. The purposive or judgemental sampling technique was used by the researcher to select key informants. The study revealed that even though there is a Strategic and Physical Planning Unit spearheading the strategic planning activities at the University of Namibia the process was not fully participatory. It also revealed that the strategic plan could not be effectively implemented due to too many unplanned activities, a high workload for staff, lack of strategic leadership, lack of commitment, lack of funding, lack of support and engagement of stakeholders, as well as the absence of a performance management system. The study recommends the establishment of a strategic planning committee at the institution to co-ordinate and communicate the strategic planning process. The study recommends the development of a communication plan that will include all staff members as well as stakeholders. en_US
