This chapter proposes a framework for creating and distributing value in public universities in the U.S. It suggests that the strategic planning process should emphasize defining value and establishing competitive distinctiveness and highlights the importance of determining which program to offer and eliminate. It also discusses the need to develop a university vision and make key decisions about program scope, quality, and tuition fees. This chapter also stresses the need for university leadership to recognize that tough decisions are necessary to maintain the discipline required to adopt a unique positioning strategy.
