Perspectives of the universitiesAdministration vs. Management- The Excellence Initiative from inside HUMANE 22nd/23rd of June, KonstanzManfred Nettekoven
The end ofthehibernation Excellence Initiative Bologna Global budget Anzahl Studierende 1870 1880 1890 1900 1980 1990 1996 1998 2000 2005 2006 Jahr Opening as “Königlich Rheinisch-Westphälisch Polytechnische Schule” (10.10.1870) “University Freedom” Law (deregulation) Independence from the state government Change of legal form
Constitutional reform in 2006 • The joint task „Hochschulbau“ was discontinued (lapse of article 91a GG) • The Federal Republic of Germany focuses only on investments in research (article 91 b GG) • Transitional arrangement until 2013/2019 (article 143 c GG)
Constitutional reform in 2006 …leads to problems concerning investments, the German Science council on scientific matters calls the constellation as specified below „financing trap“
Make 1.3 out of 1.9 billion! Investments throughout Germany
With the deregulation changes in the budget sector arose 3 areas are affected: 1. Basic funding 2. Performance-based rewards 3. Innovation What followed was a budgeting exercise, starting with - Operational budget - Budget for human resources, - Facilities
Withthederegulationchanges in thebudgetsectorarose II • Increasing relevance of output control • Performance agreements as a vehicle to support this (output-orientated) change • Discretionary resources are necessary to fund performance agreements • Key performance indicators • Controlling • Commercial accounting instead of the traditional cameralistic accounting
Management of funds and ressources • Not all the budgetary lines are involved, allocation of personnel is often omitted • Area is facility allocation, remains the „final frontier“
Chance: additional resourcesthroughcompetition International trend Two possibilities • Evaluation-based basic funding of university research spreads out. But: quantitative indicators and peer review are associated with problems. (e.g.: Great Britain, Australia) • Alternative possibility: selective ad hoc financing, which do not touch the basic funding, to reach quality improvements of research (’excellence initiative’). There have recently been attempts of this type of initiatives in Canada, Japan, the Netherlands and recently also in Germany (ExIni).
Effects on thestaff • Rectors or presidents more often „from outside“, partially recruited by headhunters • Chancellors often become vice-presidents for a limited period, „lawyers privilege“ is abolished (1999) • Establishment of full-time deans (Hamburgisches Hochschulgesetz, Hochschulmedizingesetz NRW)
Effects on thestrategy • Portfolio-Management, Hybrid-universities, SWOT-analyses • Cooperation with research centers, as for example: KIT (Karlsruhe), JARA (Aachen) • Professionalization of management and of strategic and relevant business processes (appointments of professors) • SAP and „Datenlotsen“ etc., software for traditional business administration is going to be more relevant

A new strategy paper for the RWTH Aachen university, why? The „new rectorate“ (Schmachtenberg) saw it as his task to continue the future concept and to develop a strategy for all areas. Reasons Strategy concept „RWTH 2020 : Meeting Global Challenges“ (excellence initiative) is focused on research, it does not include any other area of activity The development of a „holistic“ strategy concept served as an essential element of the renewal proposal: Future concepts for the second phase of the excellence initiative (Beginning 10/2012).

Projects carried out within the strategy program With respect to the fields of competitions the following twelve projects are considered as crucial: (1) Target and performance agreement with the faculties, technical groups and the rector‘s office (2) Aim to raise the number of scientists working for the RWTH (3) Image (corporate identity, marketing-PR) (4) Provide structures (enabling large scale projects) (5) Campus (industry matriculation, Campus GmbH) (6) Work on future teaching strategies
Projects carried out within the strategy program (2) (7) Personnel development programs/ Career advancement (8) Provide construction ground (investment in university construction/ campus) (9) Excellence Initiative concept (10) Focus on medicine and engineering (11) Research alliance with Jülich (12) Process of finding topics for the future (events, studies, forums, public discussions) The order of the listed projects does not represent an hierarchical arrangement and is therefore no indicator of the projects significance.
