Can Strategic Management Work in Colleges and Universities? AIR 1989 Annual Forum Paper.
Dooris, Michael J.; Lozier, G. Gregory
The wide variety of management approaches (zero-based budgeting, decision support systems, etc.) that have emerged in recent decades are reviewed. The questions of whether strategic management is simply another fad, and whether it can work in colleges and universities, are discussed. The development of strategic management is traced, both in theory and in practice, in the corporate setting and in higher education. One university's movement toward strategic management is described, and the emergent literature on the experience of other institutions in this area is reviewed. Such evidence, analyzed on the basis of theories about organizational decision-making and effectiveness, suggests that strategic management, properly conceived and applied, can and does succeed in colleges and universities. Contains 29 references. (Author/KM)
