Abstract—Strategic planning processes are considered to be a
powerful tool and guideline for helping all levels of Higher
Educational Institutions (HEIs) to develop their strategic plan,
and to find their competitive advantage and place within their
environment. To date, very little research has been conducted
on the strategic planning to support and foster open educational
resources (OERs) development. The objective of this study was
to develop a strategic planning process (SPP) model for
Thailand HEIs based on the concept of university social
responsibility (USR) for developing OER. The final strategic
planning process (SPP) model was verified by subject matter
experts, focus group interviews, and the results from the Index
of Item-Objective Congruence (IOC) evaluation from higher
education executive administrators. The development of this
SPP Model serves as a toolkit for mapping out a strategic plan
along with activities for aligning the concept of USR to the
outcome and creating an OER strategic plan as output, which
together can connect strategic planning to universities’
sustainable effectiveness and success in the long term.
Index Terms—Strategic planning process model, SPP model, open educational resources, OER, university social responsibility, USR.
