This paper is a case study of how Swinburne has attempted to integrate Quality management with its strategic planning processes. Over the past two decades, strategic planning and Quality management have been routine activities in Australian universities, usually, as separate processes. This paper describes how Swinburne's planning framework has developed over time to integrate Quality Review and Benchmarking. The Quality Review process includes internal Benchmarking workshops so that organisational units can share good practice across the University, and an additional feature - a review of the planning framework itself, to ensure that the University continuously strives to meet changes driven by internal and external factors. The paper will focus particularly on (i) the development of an internal Quality Review process that is linked to planning and performance and (ii) the desktop Benchmarking exercise conducted in 2003 using international best practice planning frameworks as reference points.
