Strategic Management Indicators​ (SMIs)CLIC​K HERE​​​​​

The Effectiveness Score Card models and tracks the new Strategic Management Indicators with respect to 2024 targets, as aligned with Vision 2040 and the Strategic Framework.

Stellenbosch University has six core strategic themes that underlie the SU Strategic Framework 2019-2024. The framework provides for further planning in the university and the details of the plan is incorporated into the annual Institutional Plan and serves to integrate and effectively coordinate SU's institutional strategy, priorities and goals. The environment plans of all the responsibility centres, faculties and professional and administrative support services are aligned with the strategic framework and the Institutional Plan.

​The Score Card is based on a composite index approach, with the purpose to measure progress for each SMI, objective and theme, as well as for the Strategic Framework as a whole. Different weights are allocated to core strategic themes, institutional objectives and indicators and measures, which all influence the overall composite effectiveness of the university. The index is based on measuring effectiveness, defined as progress made towards reaching a goal.
Performance measurement is complex and the allocation of weights to performance indicators according to their priorities to derive a composite score require the participation of key stakeholders. The SU Score Card was discussed with and demonstrated to the rectorate on 31 March 2020 where the model was accepted as a novel management tool for Stellenbosch University.
