Universities through the Looking Glass Measuring success in the new economics of higher education HESA Benchmarking seminar 1 st March 2011
© PA Knowledge Limited 2011. Page 2 Past conditions for success will not be the same in the future “FUNDED WORLD”“MARKET WORLD” Business ImperativesMaintaining and supplementing public funding Self-sustaining business portfolio Conditions for Sustainability Break-even or slightly better for solvency >5 -10% surpluses for self- sufficiency Competitive Success Factors Peer-rated teaching and research Value-adding service propositions Organisation ModelsDiscipline- and function- basedOpen and flexible resourcing structures Resource ManagementBudgets as spending limits (or targets) Budgets as devolved business plans Cost DriversStaff and other fixed operating costs Optimal inputs for competitive pricing Performance MeasuresDelivery of HEFCE and other public contracts Differentiation, value, cost- effectiveness
© PA Knowledge Limited 2011. Page 3 Universities need to develop new, capability-based business models The current funding-led business model is geared to sustaining a fixed cost base, and depends on continually rising revenues – this is not sustainable A capability-based business model would be self-sustaining and inherently adaptive to changing market opportunities

Page 4 In this world, success will be measured by results, not inputs STRATEGIC OBJECTIVESCRITICAL CAPABILITIESSUCCESS MEASURES Protect core teaching income (UG and PGT/R) attractive learning/study experiences strong employer relationships excellent student services Extend domestic education earnings employer and professional body links agile programme design marketing and channel mgt.

© PA Knowledge Limited 2011. Page 5 What does all this mean for benchmarking? Benchmarks that were important in a funding-led world will not necessarily be valuable in a capability-based world We are currently in an uncertain no-man’s land, equipped only with data from the old world but without a benchmarking framework for the new world If universities compete on differentiation, who will they compare themselves with? In a world of diversified and differentiated choices, how will stakeholders judge the relative performance and success of institutions?
© PA Knowledge Limited 2011. Page 6 A quick look shows the diversity of the sector
© PA Knowledge Limited 2011. Page 7 League tables represent the worst of benchmarking… No single version of success … What about part-time, on-line, and post-experience students, work-based learning, international students?
© PA Knowledge Limited 2011. Page 8 Benchmarking will become more important for…. Pricing Contact hours and other inputs Outcomes Where price becomes a complex calculation of ‘sticker price’ minus bursaries, discounts and awards, calculated in terms of repayment amounts and periods.. … and value considers contact time, learning modes, placements, skills-training, extras, timetabling and course dates … … plus greatly increased interest in data around outcomes. What % get employment? When? With which types of organisation? On what salary? What happens to them over 5 years? The student ‘deal’ Is there an RoI metric for students which combines prices and outcomes?
