Productivity: The Burden of Success.
Productivity is a concept that can be defined in a variety of ways. However, as it pertains to higher education it has yet to be sufficiently understood to allow widespread practical applications. The author of this paper examines the meanings of productivity outside the academic setting and relates his findings to current management and planning approaches used by higher education administrators. He then suggests that higher education institutions need to experiment more with different productivity measures to determine the formula best suited to their individual needs. (Author)
