Alison Pendergast's curator insight, February 16, 2013 1:56 PM

Good discussion of strategy vs. execution. Good line in the comment section from Richard Lipscombe, "Frankly, I don't care anymore whether people confuse Strategy with Execution - what is more important to me is does one have a sustainable, workable, viable, simple, and agreeable (to consumers) revenue model."

Yet for all the buzz about MOOCs, it is likely that a fair number of presidents, provosts, board members, and others in and around higher education who retain some memory of the dot.com/dot.edu era also have a sense of what Yogi Berra once described as “déjà vu all over again”: We’ve been here before, and not all that long ago.

Liberalizing Cross-Border Trade in Higher Education: The Coming Revolution of Online Universities

Liberalizing Cross-Border Trade in Higher Education: The Coming Revolution of Online Universities | Higher Ed Management | Scoop.it
Recent developments in higher education, with leading institutions starting to offer courses online, suggest that the Internet is going to disrupt this industry, just as it has already disrupted the music and book industries and many others.
Keith Hampson PhD 's insight:

Not a surprising perspective, given the orientation of the Institute. Nevertheless, we need to begin discussing the implications and opportunities that global participation in online higher education brings.

Improving Measurement of Productivity in Higher Education

Improving Measurement of Productivity in Higher Education | Higher Ed Management | Scoop.it

"Higher education is a critical element of the American economy, because of both its benefits and its costs to individuals and taxpayers. Yet we know very little about the relationships between the things colleges and universities do and the resources they need to do them. Currently, shrinking public support and increasing tuition make it urgent that we understand our own productivity and how to measure it. The challenge we face is to contain costs without compromising quality or accessibility.

 

This article summarizes the report of the National Research Council Panel on Measuring Higher Education Productivity (NRC 2012a). Table 1, derived from material in the report, also appears in Massy, Sullivan, and Mackie (2013)."

Undiscovered: The Sound Value of Creative Industries: Sex, Drugs, Rock 'N' Roll

Undiscovered: The Sound Value of Creative Industries: Sex, Drugs, Rock 'N' Roll | Higher Ed Management | Scoop.it

"Creative industries bring more than a feel good factor. They bring hard cash and jobs to any country that nurtures this sector."

 

Creatives often express an antipathy towards making commercial profit and their business skills can be limited – so policy makers and investors write them off as unpredictable and difficult to control, but this is stereotyping that is inhibiting growth!
 

____________________

The separation of creative and management processes is counterproductive ...ensuring the appropriate development of them/into marketable commodities is in short supply.

____________________

 

“Creative content sectors …are more likely to have their finance applications rejected by finance providers than non CIBs with similar risk profiles” but the evidence shows that creative SMEs have greater longevity than the industry average and, over the long term, deliver better returns."

 

…Within the Creative and Cultural Industries (CCI) sector, the functions of business management and creativity converge in a way that they don’t in other industries.

The separation of creative and management processes is counterproductive and the management of creatives and creative/cultural content in ensuring the appropriate manipulation and development of them/that content into marketable commodities is in short supply.
 

So there is a perceived risk in management and marketing – which is not backed up by the reality, as these figures show:
 

The average survival rates of CCIs after 5 years compared to all business
CCIs 49.7%    All UK businesses 46.9%
 

And for high growth firms it is even more impressive
CCIs 7.5%    All UK businesses 6%
