Systems Thinking: A Missing Component in Higher Educational Planning?
Galbraith, Peter L.
Higher Education Policy, v12 n2 p141-57 Jun 1999
Discusses difficulties within higher education management in achieving expected outcomes because of problematic elements in: artificial internal structures, funding formulae, the relative importance of system parameters versus system structure, and the significance of time scales and delays in influencing system behavior. Suggests that university management should move from a corporate framework to an ecological worldview. (EV)
