Abstract

Formalized approaches extant in the literature present strategic planning as a bureaucratic and objective exercise that will produce an integrated system of rational decisions. Yet power relationships and differences of interest among the players make planning a highly political activity. Focused on successive planning processes that occurred at the same university, this study sheds light on the micropolitical dynamics of planning and challenges several accepted premises regarding the planning process.
