Donina, Davide; Hasanefendic, Sandra – Higher Education Quarterly, 2019

Temple, Paul – Higher Education Quarterly, 2018
Keller's book was one of the first works to suggest strategic approaches to the management of higher education institutions. His case study method proved popular with readers.

Stensaker, Bjørn; Fumasoli, Tatiana – Higher Education Quarterly, 2017
In contemporary research-intensive universities, strategies are not only found at the institutional level but also at various sub-levels in the organisation.
