Programme on Institutional Management in Higher Education. Technical Report.
Khan, Abdul G.; And Others
University management is examined with regard to six major areas: decision and participation, finance, information, human flows, physical plant and equipment, and academic planning. Comprehensive long and medium term planning is proposed with the special feature of decentralized decision making. The issue of information requirements for managerial decision making must be considered in view of socio-political conflicts within and outside the university. Possibilities of substantially decreasing unit costs in British universities are explored. Justification for a research collaboration among universities and its continuance into the future on a wider scale is apparent when the wider experience is considered. Latent problems of management can be discussed explicitly within and among university communities in the sense of a continuing dialogue on issues and problems. The demonstration and diffusion of promising techniques can be carried out efficiently if a clearinghouse facility is made available to which a large number of universities have access. (LBH)
