This is a version of the white paper published through Career Education Review, and is a deeper look into the information presented by Tom King and Gregg Meiklejohn in the March 19th podcast ‘Organize A Quality Remote Admissions Program Quickly’. We hope this information helps.

As many schools rapidly shift to online operations in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, Admissions teams are struggling to be effective when in-person interviews are not possible. Adopting a Virtual Admissions Best Practice process is, in our opinion, crucial in avoiding lulls in enrollment over the next few months. Virtual Admissions will mitigate the current disruption and also become the new normal when the dust settles.

Most schools were not prepared for this abrupt disruption in business processes. Your school doesn’t have to face this alone. There are many associations and businesses dedicated to making sure your school comes out the other side of this situation and is prepared for the demand waiting there.

Social distancing means many people are staying home, and while there, plenty of them will be thinking about their uncertain futures. For some, this will involve searching for new careers, upgrading their skills, or continuing education they paused in a better job market. Establishing effective Virtual Admissions processes now will help you to be there to support them. Let’s take a look at how we can help these new “Explorers” choose to upgrade their skills through your school. Read more

Constraint Theory and Process Improvement in Admissions

There is this cool process improvement book called The Goal by Eliyahu M. Goldratt, an expert in Constraint Theory.

It’s because there are analogies everywhere and, as it happens, Constraint Theory can be used very well in improving EDU marketing and admissions performance. Go figure.

Manufacturing meets Higher EDU Enrollment Management…read on.

The Goal is a manual on Constraint Theory and Process Improvement told by way of a parable. Here is the story… This dude Alex worked for a big Candy Manufacturing Company. He was brought into the VP’s office one day and was told he had to turn around this production plant or it was doomed. He had 90 days to turn around a failing production plant or it would be shut down. As it turned out, Alex grew up in the town where the Production Plant was located. Many of his buddies from high school worked there; even, his brother in law worked there. There was huge pressure on this guy to figure this problem out or he would be left a pariah in this community where he grew up, a lump of coal for Christmas from brother in law etc…  Read more
