Higher education business process surveys, like the one recently released by the Educause Center for Applied Research (ECAR), tend to ignore the most important part of what they're studying--the costumers and services. Taxpayers inevitably foot the bill for such studies and the author concludes that maybe the best way to solve this problem is for American colleges and universities to actually start behaving more like businesses.
