Planning Techniques for University Management.
Casasco, Juan A.
Universities are becoming increasingly complex and multifunctional and there is an urgent need for a systematic approach to institutional planning which is capable of treating a total program, rather than a fragment. In this report, the need for planning, elements of comprehensive planning, and a methodological approach to university planning are briefly outlined. The bulk of the report is devoted to a description of 21 case studies involving developments in computer-assisted university planning. They are divided into: (1) comprehensive operational programs; (2) specialized operational programs; (3) comprehensive developmental programs; and (4) specialized developmental programs. For each of these cases, the objectives, scope, method, and application are discussed. A comparative matrix with tables summarizes the frequency of occurrence of planning elements, scope, and status of the studies. (AF)
