12 U OF I ORGANIZATIONS IMPROVE PERFORMANCE UNDER HARRELD

11-14-17

Greetings, Mr. Bruce Harreld, UI President and alló

The following table shows UI president, Bruce Harreld, is making good progress in improving performance of 12 organizations at UI.  Congratulations, President Harreld!!

The table also shows those in red are not improving sufficiently.  The worst of them all, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, is the focus of an organizational overhaul, reported in the 10-28-17 Cedar  Rapids Gazette  and posted on  http://www.iowalive.net/uiperformanceoverhaul.htm

Organizations undergoing major performance overhauls traditionally expect at least 30% improvement in performance.  Anything less is not deemed to be sufficient justification for such an extensive overhaul.  However, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is performing so poorly at least 300%  improvement is needed to make it respectable.  At this time it is estimated the overhaul will result in about 40% initial improvement, with about 10% more in 2 years, unless changes are made.   It can't be fixed, it must be dismantled!!!

COLLEGE OF NURSING IS NOW TOP UI PERFORMER

UI COLLEGES AND ACADEMIC UNITS ARE LOSING GROUND COMPARED TO THE BEST NATIONAL UNIVERSITY LEVELS OF PERFORMANCE.   THOSE IN RED NEED IMMEDIATE ATTENTION--SUCH AS CLOSING & MERGING IA STUDENTS WITH ISU & UNI!!  Source:  Available Data Researched and Compiled by Iowalive Net Workers.  11-3-15, updated 3-20-17 and 11-3-17

It would cost at least $2.5 million to have academic performance measurement specialists prepare this table.

Numbers were derived using Iowalive's proprietary algorithms and database.  Anyone claiming to have better numbers is asked to provide them.

 

Performance benchmarks will soon  be released for Iowa State University and its new president.

Stay tuned!
