  "description": "<p>A PEARC21 workshop gathered Research Computing and Data (RCD) professionals to discuss leading practices<br>\nfor developing effective strategic plans for their Research Computing and Data programs. Workshop participants<br>\nwere familiar with issues around supporting Research Computing and Data, had experience contributing to<br>\nstrategic planning, and had some exposure to the RCD Capabilities Model. Workshop participants learned about<br>\ncommon practices for strategic planning, heard from a panel of three RCD program leaders who described their<br>\ncampus culture/climate around strategic planning and support for RCD, their group&rsquo;s approach to RCD planning,<br>\nand the role of the RCD Capabilities Model in this context; and engaged in a discussion with the panelists on these<br>\ntopics. Workshop participants then broke into groups to explore and compare current strategic planning practices at<br>\ntheir respective institutions, and additionally to identify requirements for a community resource to support strategic<br>\nplanning.</p>\n\n<p>This report documents the workshop activity and findings, including shared observations as well as<br>\nrecommendations. In particular, we detail four themes that emerged as &ldquo;Desired elements of a strategic planning<br>\nresource&rdquo;:</p>\n\n<ul>\n\t<li>A repository of templates, examples, and models of strategic planning</li>\n\t<li>A collection of narratives and use-cases that describe successful programs</li>\n\t<li>Examples and practices for communication strategies related to strategic planning</li>\n\t<li>A program of mentoring and identifying expertise related to strategic planning</li>\n</ul>\n\n<p>We describe possible approaches to assembling these resource elements as part of the RCD Nexus Resource and<br>\nCareer Center, noting that while there is a close alignment between the goals of a strategic planning resource as<br>\nenvisioned by the workshop participants and the goals for the RCD Nexus program and associated CaRCC working<br>\ngroups, the resources available during the Demo Pilot phase of the NSF supported RCD Nexus CoE program are<br>\nlimited, and some of the recommendations may need to be incorporated into NSF proposals for a full CoE program.<br>\nFinally, we note some related efforts that are exploring similar issues.</p>",
