We’ve devoted many hours of this show to the role of the business officer of the institution. But today’s guest reminds us that there is great opportunity to guide and support the institution from the individual academic or departmental units. Administrative Management Institute director Fred Rogers has spent the last 21 years working with this body of finance experts in association with EACUBO and Cornell University, building professional development programs that celebrate the great potential of unit level business officers to the institution. Howard Teibel will be presenting on Leadership and Decision-Making at the AMI conference, July 28-August 1 at Cornell University in Ithaca. This week on the show, Fred joins Howard and Pete Wright to share his perspective on AMI, and discuss the critical importance of strategic alignment across the institution.
