Governments or public sectors for that matter is not only inefficient in most cases but also cannot bear the burden of massive finances involved. This brings us to the need of privatization in higher education which is not simply a means of acquiring more money for the opulent but also helping enormously in increasing efficiency, ensuring quality andboosting competition amongst the institutions. All of this is contributing essentially in generating more advanced and useful
First, there is a dire need for remedial work to improve the performance of the factors that determine soft power. This can mean that there’s a need of improvement in expansion of human rights, improvement of economic competitiveness, or investment of in the nation’s cultural infrastructure. Whatever the need might be, a soft power analytical frame helps ascertain where action should be taken. A major problem as of now is lack of infrastructure in most parts of the country as the population is expanding at an unexpected rate and migration has been massive too, This is in contradiction to the recent growth rate of AAA%. Though India has been building infrastructure, it is not being able keep pace with demand.
Most employers, to a large extent are justified, because while the work place is constantly evolving, our educational systems, particularly the Universities being fiddle points have remained less responsive (routine) to the ever changing needs of employers and the work place. Critical researches and projects that many Corporations, Organizations and Governments agencies would like to embark upon require “superior critical thinkers” to get the job done. Most of these researches could be in health interventions, security and counter terrorism operations, basic transportation and distribution networks etc. There is no better time for employers to ask for these groups of individuals other than now.

Six Sigma in Higher Education Higher Education is a complicated sector, and universities may seem unusual places to implement methodologies from the private sector. However, learning from other sectors can be a highly successful way of accelerating positive change. Quality in higher education is becoming an significant issue because of ever increasing demand by stakeholders and competitive environment. According to Freeman (1993), there is an increasing need to improve the quality of higher education because education is becoming a global entity facing challenges with resource constraints. Educational system and the education process should be evaluated carefully in order to produce best quality for its customers; the parents and the students.
‘College image’ is highly associated with ‘service quality’ thus the variables introduced by Carney (1994) were developed under the context of college image, most of the variables noted are also relevant to the measurement of service quality. Athiyaman (1997) used eight quality characteristics to scrutinize professional higher education services, namely, teaching students well, availability of academic and non-academic staff for student consultation, well equipped 69 library, computer facilities, recreational facilities, size of classrooms, level and complexity of subject matter and student workload. In addition to that the author observed that consumer satisfaction is alike to attitude, but it is short-term and results from an assessment of
Many researchers have argued that inflexibility and inability to learn and adapt to the environment are among the most critical factors that hinder organizational success (Jones, Jimmieson, & Griffiths, 2005; Lee, Tan, & Chiu, 2008; Zheng, Yang, & McLean, 2010). It is often hard for leaders to continue to be successful. For example, most leaders at Amana succeed in one department but fail badly when moved to a different one. The main reason for this is not addressing the changing circumstances and continue to try to lead in the exact same way. The leadership approach at Amana Takaful has been inflexible since recent years which ultimately demotivates the workforce.
Herman Melville, the great American novelist was quoted explaining the very essence of creativity and, in the same breathe; bashing plagiarism. He said, “It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation” (Melville, 1957:151). Many reasons exist as to why plagiarism is increasingly common throughout the world, in many industries. This is mainly in the academic realm. It is due to the fact that Higher Education facilities strive to reach idealistic goals of innovative and unique thinking and ways of learning.
Our parent's dream that we will become a Teacher, Doctor or maybe a Lawyer, whatever it is, to do those things require higher education. Making good grades, and dedication to your goals, and be your best academically. There are great advantages of doing well in school and I will explain them in this e-book. However, lack of education tends to have many different effect's on people. Most never reach their full potential, not to mention, lower educated workers get paid a lot less that skilled workers, with lack of education, does a number of things to alter ones working career, not in all cases, but for example, A warehouse worker, maintenance, fast food, landscaping just to name a few, are jobs that don't require higher education, and is accessible to them for employment.
We live in a global world and an increasingly competitive environment. Highlighted by the world conference of higher education held by the UNISCO, the modern university is facing substantial change as a result of two central trends in external environment. These trends are “acceleration in the pace of change itself and the globalization of the economy and of technology” (UNISCO, 1998, p.11) causing challenge for higher education institutes. The challenges facing higher education include internal and external factors. From one side, internal factors are 1) the “tensions between research and teaching structures” (Felt and Glanz 2002, p.18), 2) the inability of dealing with the growth of number of students entering higher education institutes
