The Effective University: A Management By Objectives Approach.
Norris, Graeme
The goals and output evaluation to aid in the effective allocation of scarce resources at the University of Leeds (in Britain) is the focus of the book. The first chapter describes the purpose of the book, defines the terms effectiveness and efficiency, and presents the theoretical background of the study. The following goals and performance indicators are discussed in Chapter Two: management by objectives; the Delphi process; a tentative list of institution-wide goals (e.g., scholarship and scientific method, personal development); and a project goals matrix. Chapter Three examines resource allocation methods including a review of previous research, methods for computing such items as intuition and student numbers. In Chapter Four on research output and evaluation, an investment portfolio and criteria for project selection are discussed. Economic, cultural, and social benefits and quality measures are among the topics presented in Chapter Five. The final chapter considers such areas as a periodic review of objectives, feedback, willingness to adopt quantitative methods, and committee behavior. A 250-item bibliography and computing questionnaire are appended. (PHR)
