This research has been performed on the basis of a benchmarking which I had experimented on the American Strategic Leadership (ASL) from which it has been demonstrated that there is a cause-and-effect relationship between the implementation of SL within large organizations and the improvement of their performance. This endeavor would be achieved through the development of a clear and dynamic vision centered on the development of competencies not only at the individual level, but also and above all, those specific to leading large organizations, particularly within the VUCA environment. This study aimed especially to find out the gaps within our national public universities’ community comparing to the foundational ASL framework. Then, we discussed how these findings can help facilitate a smooth and progressive ASL implementation in national universities governance through a smart and adapted induction taking in account the Moroccan culture and societal specificities. Therefore, the adoption of ASL, as a mode of governance, would be a crucial and important contribution to improving the overall performance of national public universities and their sustainability which would very likely play its fundamental key role in the development and upgrading of national human capital and ipso-facto launch them to a better repositioning on the regional and international arena.
