Organizational Processes

Most higher education institutions lack a framework that provides guidance regarding the organizational processes by which the work gets done.

  • Assess, plan, and build institutional and individual capacity

  • Optimize balance between centralization and decentralization

  • Assess, plan, and develop organizational infrastructure

These organizational processes are inextricably intertwined.

That is, it is impossible to effectively build institutional capacity, without attending to the balance between centralization and decentralization, and allocating resources (organizational infrastructure).

Moreover, organizational processes must be guided by a foundational framework that articulates the institutional context, mission, values, priorities, and systems of accountability for achieving the desired goals and outcomes.
