Analysis, Advice and Implementation

Academic Institutions must identify new ways to remain productive, innovative, efficient and solvent. Universities and colleges are challenged as never before by growing public concern regarding the cost and value of higher education and increasing competition for funding.

Administrative expenditures seem to outpace investment in core missions, and administrative tasks divert investigator effort away from scholarly activity. Herman, Neuhauser Research Management Consulting, Inc., (HNRMC), offers novel, data-driven, just-in-time solutions to strategic and operational challenges faced by academic institutions. HNRMC consultants have extensive experience in the effective leadership and operations of academic institutions. We offer expert analysis and solutions to address commonly encountered needs involving strategy, organizational effectiveness, regulatory and compliance functions, faculty and administrator development, research data management, and revenue enhancements.

Academic institutions are increasing their efforts in finding solutions to the many critical societal challenges. This has opened new funding opportunities for translational research but also created new challenges. Translational research is highly collaborative and interdisciplinary, often involves stakeholders from outside academia, meaningful results are expected at a much-accelerated timescale, and resulting technologies may have the potential for commercialization.
