Performance against KPIs – University of Technology Sydney – Case Study
The University of Technology Sydney (UTS) implemented the Key Performance Indicator (KPI) Framework, in order to support management decision making process, by providing informative insights for the Council, the Executive and senior management.
The framework incorporates 22 university-wide KPIs over five interdependent performance domains:
