Some scholars argue that higher education should focus resources away from administration and back to teaching and research, writes Andrew Jack.

Timothy Devinney recalls his horror when shown a sprawling spreadsheet of “key performance indicators” from the university department where he once worked. It included 110 targets, each with personnel assigned to monitor them.

“There are only two that matter: erudition and pedagogy. Any sane organization would look at administrative overhead and try to cut it out,” says Professor Devinney, currently Director of International Affairs at Alliance Manchester Business School.
