The implementation of quality in higher education is one of the important issues for academic institutions. The need for education in the academic sector (as well as the need for reform) represents a top priority for all the members involved in the higher educational system. Due to the recent global economic crisis, the educational process will have to assure efficiency, efficacy and productivity and must implement these principles itself.
The higher education system must focus and take into account the students’ training needs (one of the fundamental principles of the new public management). Organisational behaviour in the public sector was organised (until the 1980s) according to the Max Weber principles. The new public management, called Managerialism, represents an organisational principle of the public sector and implements the Taylor principles. It was initiated in the 1980s in the United States and began to be implemented in the European organisations from the 1990s.
This project intends to assist public managers from the education system to approach some principles called Strategic Quality Management in Education (SQME). SQME is a three-part process based on staff at different levels making their own unique contribution to quality improvement. Senior managers and governors take the lead in strategic quality management by setting out the institution, visions, priorities and policies.
