"Strategic Planning in the Construction Sector: A Proposed Model for the Strategic Plan to Adopt BIM in Syria." Research Summary: Comprehensive strategic planning for the Syrian state is an inevitable necessity to address the catastrophic effects of the war that the country has suffered from, and its effects are still ongoing in light of government incapacity and gross failure that has affected all economic, industrial, and scientific aspects. This is reflected in the global development and knowledge indicators. Therefore, the Syrian state must adopt comprehensive planning concepts and strive to make knowledge its primary destination to create a strong economy and a strong industry ready for the upcoming reconstruction phase. It should adopt modern administrative concepts, cognitive and engineering sciences, and seek to incorporate them into its plans. Building Information Modeling (BIM) modeling may occupy the forefront of these sciences due to its great importance in transferring Syrian engineering work in the construction sector to advanced countries. Therefore, the study presented in its chapters the concepts of comprehensive planning and strategic planning on the one hand, and BIM modeling on the other hand, through analyzing and comparing current strategies to adopt BIM technology and the most important global trends and experiences, and identifying the most important obstacles and challenges that faced it. Then, the current situation of BIM technology was studied and analyzed, exploring the extent of its spread in the Syrian construction industry, with the aim of formulating a framework for integrating BIM modeling technology effectively within the life cycle of engineering projects in Syria, and proposing a strategic plan to adopt BIM in Syria. As a result, the research produced a set of findings throughout its chapters as follows: In chapter two, a model was constructed to integrate government plans that contribute to achieving the BIM plan. This was done through a comprehensive study of planning and strategic planning, as well as an examination of the reality of planning and the various government plans in Syria, which revealed weaknesses in both the planning mechanism and plan implementation mechanisms. In chapter three, a comprehensive study was conducted on the current situation of BIM adoption in Syria, and the problems and difficulties that hinder its implementation. The BIM maturity matrix was applied to companies in both the public and private sectors, revealing weaknesses in both sectors in terms of BIM adoption, despite the private sector's superiority in most areas. Based on this, a SWOT analysis was conducted on the current situation in Syria regarding BIM adoption, which indicated strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. In chapter four, a proposed framework was developed for implementing the strategic plan for BIM adoption in Syria. This resulted in a roadmap for BIM adoption in Syria from the beginning of 2023 until the end of 2030. In chapter five, the plan was practically applied to a performance management program called BSC DESIGNER, resulting in a strong and robust performance management system for implementing the strategic plan according to a timeline from the beginning of 2023 until the end of 2030. This research is a bold attempt by the researcher to complement various sciences within a comprehensive strategic planning framework. This research aims to reach decision-makers and help put Syria on the global BIM map by translating the plan's vocabulary and goals into practical reality that contributes to shaping the future of the construction industry in Syria. This study recommends coordination and cooperation between decision-makers and stakeholders in the construction sector to implement the proposed BIM adoption strategy through its four axes (policies, technologies, processes, knowledge, and skills) and secure financial support. Keywords: strategic planning, comprehensive planning, building information modeling, performance management, engineering projects, BIM adoption plan, Syria.

The Role Of Strategic Planning In Improving The Performance Of Higher Educational Institutions CaseStudy : Arab Academy For Science,Technology And Maritime Transport Lattakia Branch
The research aims to identify the role of strategic planning in the private higher education by highlighting the strengths and weaknesses of the private university to help in choosing the strategy to exploit the opportunities and strength points. A nd also to avoid or address weaknesses and threats. So that the private university would be able to achieve continuous improvements and distinctions epecially in the light of the current circumstances in Syria. And the Academy inLatakia, has been chosen being one of the first private universities in Syria. We relyed on the descriptive and analytical approach and the use of questionnaires for each one who is responsible of strategic planning in the academy in order to highlight the steps to be followed to prepare a strategic plan for the academy because it hasn't been following the strategic planning approach in a practical way to improve the performance of its educational tasks. The most important results that have been reached are: the academic management interaction with moral and conduct strategic planning was weak due to the weakness of responsibility towards the process of change and also because of the constant change in the administrative leadership of the academy during short periods of time The research has also shown that the faculty teaching members are not aware of the academy's mission and that is because there isn't a suitable atmosphere in the academy right now for change and developement especially in the light of the existing competitions. In the light of these results, the researcher suggested the following: The management in this branch should provide the right atmosphere to accept changes by starting awareness campaigns within the scientific and administrative departments of the academy to introduce the members to the mission of the academy, its goals and future plans.
