In the fourth episode of our webcast series on The Best Practices in Program Portfolio Evaluation, we shared a process that leads to high-quality program decisions, and ensures that these choices have the support of faculty and institutional leaders.
Our team has facilitated this process at institutions across the country. It combines a workshop with the best data on markets for higher education.
Why has this process been successful?
- Transparent – Enables a frank discussion of program metrics and scoring rubrics–and their limitations
- Cross-Functional – Engages key stakeholders from the administration and faculty
- Market Data – Provides all participants with relevant data on student demand, employer demand, and competition
- Judgment – Encourages participants to use the data to inform their judgment, not to replace it
