Performance Efficiency and Effectiveness

Universities like any other organisations, seek to make best use of finite and sometimes diminishing resources.  As Professor Diamond commented recently, Universities are good value for money but there is still more to do.


This theme is about providing solutions and approaches to tackling some of the issues.  For example, do university services such as Finance, Human Resources, IT and Computing Services, Marketing, Estates and Registry deliver Value for Money?  Is space used efficiently? Is management information including benchmarking available to allow these calls to be answered?  And if not, what tools and models can be used to help plug the gaps?
