What is Achieve?
Continued self-improvement is part of who we are as Phi Kaps. Achieve is Phi Kappa Theta's multi-step strategic planning tool that allows chapter leadership and individual members to reflect and set the tone for the academic year. As a result of continued pause and reflection, you’ll be able to improve your chapter's developmental culture from year to year.
A Culture of Reflection
Our organizational approach to chapter- and self-improvement includes four steps:
Assess First, reflect on your experiences
Plan Next, identify and set realistic goals
Execution Take action to fulfill your goal(s)
Evaluate Debrief and discuss strategies for further growth.
This portion of phikaps.org is where chapters come to complete the Achieve Assessment each year.
Achieve has been reimagined and ORGANIZed for 2019-2020!
Starting in fall of 2019, we’ll focus on two main administrative tasks that simplify the Four-Step process outlined above:
These two parts will act as book-ends for the academic year
ASSESS their performance,
PLAN out goals for the year
EXECUTE AN ACTION PLAN
EVALUATE their progress,
REPORT events and programs
