Academic Planning: Problems and Possibilities.
Kohrman, Robert E.
Planning and management is now and will continue to be a way of life for the academy. The shape of education in the years to come will be determined by the ability to accommodate management systems and mold them to a desired form. As the academic profession embraces planning systems and learns to live with a dismal financial future, leadership skill in defining this difference will be crucial. Academic planning seems to have had some beneficial impact; more institutions are being described as "managed" in the sense of adopting an overall strategy to confront the new depression. Despite present problems, the possibilities of effective, thorough planning procedures provide the most rational direction for the future of higher education. (Author/KE)
