Colleges and universities are a kind of life organization, which has its own life cycle. Generally speaking, the life cycle of colleges and universities includes "the initial stage", "the revival stage" and "the mature stage". To plan the development of a school, we must make clear its life cycle and formulate a development strategy plan according to the periodic characteristics of the school life cycle. Strategic planning is a systematic and thorough design of the future development direction of colleges and universities and how to move in this direction. In order to realize the transformation and development of universities, there must be a clear strategy, which mainly includes three elements: vision, goals and major actions. Strategic planning of colleges and universities is a systematic design of the specific process of running a school according to the strategy. Making a good strategic planning is a complex systematic project. We should grasp the key issues in the development of a school, jump out of the school and look positively at the past and present development of the school.
