Based on a model that was tested over several years at a large university, this book offers the reader expert, realistic, step-by-step guidance. The first two chapters present the model itself and tell why and under what conditions it was developed; its strengths and weaknesses; what principles it is based on, and how it is applied. The next chapters tell the reader exactly how to do it: the demonstrator will learn how to identify and set goals, plan strategies for goal attainment, carry out their plans and measure them. They will also see how to allocate resources, distribute dollars to faculty members, and much more. The final chapter presents the successes and failures of outcome management as a strategy for organizational management within a university setting.
