Lissner, L. Scott; Taylor, Alton L.
New Directions for Higher Education, n94 p3-8 Sum 1996

Structural shifts in political and economic environments also created different challenges to maintaining excellence in teaching, research and service than in previous cyclical downturns. In response, decisionmakers are relying less on traditional strategic planning and engaging in more strategic thinking. (MSE)
