New! High Impact Improvement Models for Higher Education

Want to quickly improve your institution’s effectiveness in the face of unprecedented change, challenges, and competition?

Based on my work, both as a higher education leader and as a consultant with a broad cross section of higher education stakeholders, I have identified the highest value, “game changing” activities that institutions can invest in to immediately improve both their operational effectiveness and competitiveness in what has become a hyper-change, hyper-competitive operating environment. These enterprise level activities range from half a day to up to two full days of executive team commitment, but the ROI is substantial, if not critical to future success and sustainability. The highest impact models include:

  • Game Changing Strategic Planning
  • Action Plan for Surviving and Thriving the Higher Education Contraction
  • Innovation
  • Change Management
  • Organizational Health and Culture
  • Strategic Leadership
  • Communications
  • Active P&L Management
  • New Program Development/Product Strategy
  • Institutional Advancement (Fund Raising)

All of the above models will support greater operational effectiveness in virtually any institutional context. However, some organizations are better positioned culturally than others to leverage the greatest benefits. WallaceKPond.com can work with any organization to improve strategic, operational, and cultural effectiveness, while moving the organization itself to a position of greater strength and sustainability.
