Management and Continuous Improvement: Technology Solution P Mani Joseph Modern College of Business and Science
Quality Audit@ MCBS Quality Audit visit took place in 2009. MCBS received 4 Commendations, 4 Affirmations, and 15 Recommendations. MoHE follow-up visit took place in December 2012 and endorsed the actions taken by MCBS
Two Recommendations from the Quality Audit Reports OAC recommends that MCBS document the proceedings and decisions arising from committee meetings to improve committees’ effectiveness, guide subsequent actions, and provide a record for future reference. OAC recommends that MCBS develop evidence-based, systematic short and long-term planning to inform decision making and management actions
Corrective steps The QA Unit recognized the need for a systematic and ongoing tracking and reporting mechanism for assessment across the college. Avoid chaotic, last-minute approach (fire fighting) to accreditation visits with a more orderly and effective process. Move away from paper-heavy processes to digital processes MCBS decided to introduce a technology platform to manage key processes.
- MCBS SharePoint Portal Technology platform that supports Strategic Plan management Collaborative Work Central Depository Survey Management
- Plan Management Educonnect is used in setting up the institutional goals, objectives, actions and targets. Supports the academic and administrative units to contribute to the achievement of the agreed goals, objectives and targets Continuous review of performance against defined targets. Can track performance—down to the individual level Retrieves and aggregates the data, maps it to individual units/ and institutional goals, and delivers a set of dashboards that provide clear views into performance.
-Collaborative work Provides collaborative workspace for the Self-Study process Works on the principle of electronic check-out of a document before editing can occur. Multiple writers/reviewers have access to a single document; however, only one person can check the document out at any given time Avoids creation of multiple versions. Complete history of all edited versions of the report is archived by the software and is retrievable, so no work is lost.
Central Resource Depository Central location for storing all documents digitally Holds any document format, including PDFs, images, videos, and text files. Self study documents can be hyperlinked with these documents Search capability, so people can find documents based on criteria such as author, date published, topic, or key words. Organized by category, or alphabetically
System Integration EduPortal (SIS) Eduoasis (LMS) Educonnect
