Humanizing Business and Financial Affairs.
Bohne, Stanford R.
Studies in Management, v2 n5 Jan 1973
Suggestions are offered for making business and financial affairs of educational institutions more personal and accountable to faculty, students, administrators, and the community. Objectives are identified for business managers to: (1) devise more ways for student, staff, and faculty participation in shaping the college culture and managing the organization; (2) provide better evaluation and accountability of efforts; (3) keep the institution relevant to the society that supports it; and (4) devise a built-in reward system for employees. Efforts of Central Washington State College in these areas are described. Internal programs initiated include a departmental evaluation between business and academic staff, an intern program for students, and the use of time productivity logs to help individuals become accountable and more effective in time management. It is concluded that business officers are in the most strategic place to help the institution become positive, constructive, and helpful. (LBH)
