Education is democratizing, and lifelong learning is being embraced at levels of society. The fast paced change in business and industry means academic institutions must constantly evolve to train ambitious students who can solve global problems.

This is simultaneously an enormous opportunity and threat for academic institutions around the world. On the one hand, savvy institutions are taking the lead and engaging technology to transform their operational and business models. On the other hand, that same technology provides ample room, in an increasingly liberalized market, for competitors to edge into the domain of traditional academic institutions – universities and technical colleges. It is clear academic institutions must now do more with less, while responding to the demands and opportunities created by globalization and technology.

Business Process Management (BPM) enhances academic institutions’ ability to respond to, and capitalize on, the threats and opportunities of the future:

  • Alignment of institution operations with strategic direction, faster identification of opportunities and effective Change Management practices.
  • Optimization of academic institution operations to keep costs down.
  • Boosts compliance in highly complex organizational environments – especially important as, for example, institutions’ merge similar courses to gain economies of scale.
