With demand, revenue, and regulatory pressures facing higher education today, two ways universities are aiming to improve is through increased growth and efficiency.

ABC Insights® has identified three strategies for tackling these issues. One strategy is to articulate growth goals to spread fixed costs over a larger base. The second is to increase centralization, especially at the HR function. The third is to prioritize continuous improvement by assessing the current situation, comparing through internal and external benchmarking, and improving based on data-driven insights.

We demonstrate these through the case studies of 4 of the most efficient universities in the US.
