Napier, C. (2013). Improved decision making to underpin the achievement of strategic goals at the University of Wollongong. The 2nd Annual Higher Education Information Management Strategy Forum 2013


The Higher Education sector is an increasingly competitive environment. As such, it is prudent for institutions to seek advantages across all areas that will lead to improved research outcomes, commercial partnerships and student learning experience. The Performance Indicators Unit commenced in 1999 and has evolved to cover seven key perspectives of integration of Information Management across the University, working to avoid the operational silos that can occur within Universities. This session will explore: Utilising network relationship analysis to develop an understanding of the University of Wollongong's collaborations and facilitate improvement The importance of visualisation to translate data into meaningful information that assists decision makers Experience gained so far and possible future directions
