This article examines the process followed by the University of Worcester Business School (WBS) in England in planning its operations for a forthcoming academic year. The planning process are focused on an assessment of scheduled course activities and the interaction of WBS staff with the University Planning Department. There are three specific stages in the process which include requirements gathering, staff and time allocation, and room allocation. An institutional requirement facing the WBS is to contribute to the strategic growth objective from 2006-2012. There are several factors that complicate the process involved in identifying which modules should be included in each course. Another activity in the planning process is estimating the number of students who will take the module.
