Planning and Management Practices in Higher Education: Promise or Dilemma?
Millard, Richard, Ed.; And Others
With the converging concerns regarding institutional financing, public accountability, and the development of more effective techniques for planning and managing of postsecondary educational institutions and systems, the need for serious, practical consideration of the state of the art in new planning and management techniques in postsecondary education has become progressively more critical. The National Forum on New Planning and Management Practices in Higher Education grew out of such a need, and the present document presents the papers and discussions that took place at the Forum. To place the systems in perspective, the first day of the Forum was devoted to a keynote address on the problems of higher education leadership in the 1970s, overviews and cautions in relation to goal-setting and evaluation, planning and resource allocation, and execution and operation followed by a discussion of the implications of existing planning and management systems. The morning of the final day was devoted to strategies of accomplishment and problems of implementation and a general question and answer session. An appendix describes data base management systems, basic operational systems, planning and resource allocation tools, and communication base tools. (HS)
