Study of the Comparative Effectiveness of Alternative Administrative Structures. Evaluation Report. Programme on Institutional Management in Higher Education.
Thulin, Lars Uno
The methodology is reviewed and recommendations offered regarding alternative administrative structures. A more systematic study of the literature is advocated, along with the establishment of a reference group of administrators to act as advisors to the research team. The research must be focused on more than one department. The systems approach should be preferred as a method, with the behavioral approach developed further before it can be used in a practical project. The next phase of the project has to be drafted in close contact and cooperation with the administrative reference group. The proposed project must be presented to the members of the IMHE program for comments, suggestions, and approval, and time for amendments according to discussion of the project draft should be allowed. It is concluded that execution of the project can take place at the various universities, in cooperation with the administrative reference group members. (LBH)
