The creation of Strategy 2015 has been a collective activity, with input from across the community. It is based on a larger Simmons Strategy Map
, a vision for the next 100 years of Simmons. The map, in turn, is organized around five themes which support the Simmons Core Purpose: Transformative learning that links passion with lifelong purpose.
