Institutional Management in Higher Education.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France). Centre for Educational Research and Innovation.
This is the report of a conference sponsored by the Centre for Educational Research and Innovation. The conference discussed the findings of the Centre's 2-year program which attempted to demonstrate how the resource management of universities may be improved through better decisionmaking in the realms of finance, information, human flows, the use of physical plant and academic plans. The 2-year program utilized research and coordinating work conducted by the Centre and a tripartite agreement between the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, the member country's relevant government department and the universities themselves. It was found that private business enterprise models could not be directly applied to the university situation. New and practical approaches had to be developed. (Author/CS)
