Organizational Paradigm Shifts.
National Association of College and University Business Officers, Washington, DC.
This collection of essays explores a new paradigm of higher education. The first essay, "Beyond Re-engineering: Changing the Organizational Paradigm" (L. Edwin Coate), suggests a model of quality process management and a structure for managing organizational change. "Thinking About Consortia" (Mary Jo Maydew) discusses cooperative effort and organizational issues for consortia. In "Rethinking the Academy's Administrative Structure" (Jillinda J. Kidwell and David O'Brien), administrative inefficiencies and the business case for change are studied; included also is a case study of a budget experience at the Stanford University School of Medicine. "Meeting the Challenges of Change at Kent State" (Myron S. Henry) discusses fiscally driven changes to rethink curricula, administrative roles, and operations of major functional units. "New Paradigms in Student Affairs" (Paula M. Rooney and P. Gerard Shaw) briefly reviews the history of student affairs, describes changes currently underway at many institutions, and peeks at the future. "Organizational Restructuring at Carnegie Mellon University" (Patrick J. Keating, et al.) explores the university's creation and implementation of a strategy for process restructuring and suggests it as a model for other institutions facing similar problems. The final essay, "Academic Renewal at Michigan" (James Duderstadt) sees the modern research university as a complex, international conglomerate of highly diverse businesses. (Some individual essays contain references.) (CH)
