April 2011 was a busy month for resource allocation at the University of Saskatchewan, as we hosted the University of Toronto on April 15, Iowa State University on April 28 and 29, and Larry Goldstein, president of Campus Strategies on April 28 and 29, to share with us their experiences with resource allocation. This chart summarizes the April consultations.
We were pleased to have the University of Toronto come and share their experiences of their transition to a new budget model through a presentation on April 15, 2011. Their presentation is available below:
Iowa State University came to the University of Saskatchewan on April 28 and 29, 2011 and provided us with a rich and informative presentation on their experiences with the Resource Management Model. You can view their presentation below:
Larry Goldstein conducted small group activity sessions following the Iowa State University presentation to help understand general perceptions and attitudes regarding a new resource allocation project at the University of Saskatchewan. To see the presentation, please see the link below.
We learned a lot through these presentations, and the following three documents outline our key learnings from the University of Toronto, Iowa State University, and Larry Goldstein presentations.
