PMU - One Year After. Occasional Paper 2.
The rationale and objectives of a 1973 report, entitled "Planning and Management in Universities" (PMU), is described, followed by a discussion of the problems of introducing business concepts into universities. Problems facing organizations that introduce management innovations are examined: life cycle of an innovation; visible cost and intangible benefits; increasing complexity; and the managerial "tool-kit" (planning, allocating, collecting and keeping records, and evaluating).
