As a leading international school, AISG's Strategic Vision Framework reflects the importance of building a sustainable future that takes into account the vast changes in the education market as well as the market we serve. It also highlights how to leverage those changes to provide the most transformational experiences for our community.
The journey towards creating the Strategic Vision Framework was extensive and comprehensive, with participation from all areas of the AISG community. Led by the Board of Governors and with the professional guidance of an organizational consulting firm, Triangle Associates, the development of the framework took into consideration data from the community, focus groups, and feedback from stakeholders.
FIRST, REINFORCE OUR FOUNDATION
A key outcome from the framework called for AISG to reinforce its foundation, which includes a reexamination of our school's purpose, vision and mission statements, core values, and value propositions. A continuation of involving the AISG community is instrumental in this foundational work that is planned for the current school year.
THEN, PURSUE STRATEGIC PRIORITIES
The framework also identified four strategic priorities that the community believes will guide them for the next 40 years: School Improvement, Expansion, Training & Consulting and Corporate Social Responsibility.
AISG will be a hub of education, offering a learning environment that provides a transformative experience through its innovative programs, methods, and spaces, empowering students with the knowledge, skills, and character strengths necessary to be positively impactful global citizens, striving to excel educationally and personally.
AISG will increase its influence through the physical expansion of its programming, leveraging its expertise to increase accessibility to a diverse population of students within Guangzhou and beyond.
TRAINING AND CONSULTING
AISG will be a leading center of international education, locally recognized, regionally, and globally as a thought leader in curriculum, teaching and learning, and student experience.
CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
AISG will develop and leverage partnerships with businesses, educational institutions, alumni, and non-profit organizations to create a service program that enriches the AISG community and establishes the school as a leading "corporate citizen" in Guangzhou and beyond.
THE NEXT FORTY YEARS
These four strategic priorities are aspirational and are meant to push the boundaries of innovation in a way that is inclusive of both local and global communities. The work on these priorities will be ongoing with the expectation of moving from framework to action by identifying task forces, creating action plans, and identifying projects.
This year, as we celebrate our 40th anniversary, AISG's Strategic Vision Framework creates an exciting, bold and ambitious vision for AISG for the next 40 years!
