Some nuts and bolts of performance indicators, business intelligence, and operational planning.
An interesting example of :
You need to understand the data definitions !!!
Build a model at the application level:
The usual performance indicators are
Foundation of BI is rock solid data
All McGill fine grained data
Operational and enterprise data warehouses are fed from Banner
Business analytics can be grouped into two categories:
A performance indicator is a measure linked to an activity
Benchmarking compares your performance indicator to other’s
A student takes a program of courses in order to learn.
The learning is assessed grades CGPA
The CGPA is a measure of the student’s overall success at learning
The student’s CGPA, relative to others’, is a performance indicator
Benchmarking is serious business at McGill
This year, Departments were given guidelines but were given wide scope to benchmark their performance. Reports go to the Dean.
Two things to keep in mind:
Admission stage: admit to the “admission program”
2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009

Yield 31% 27% 20% 24% 26% 25% 24%
One conceptual model :
Is this practical? Or even possible?
Another conceptual model :
This is the model used at McGill
Total credits: 90 or 120
36 credits selected from 4 areas:
( Each area has a long course list )
3992 bodies = 399 FTE
All classrooms are “university property” and centrally funded
Laboratories are still “departmental property” but centrally funded
>>Teaching and Learning Services
>> >> Teaching and Learning Space Work group
TLSWG allocates the equipment budget, and is responsible for teaching space design, equipment, etc
Process –web based, developed and hosted by CREPUQ
The numbers are not large.
For the Fall 2008
All Quebec universities = 5064
