One major issue with administration in academia is that there is absolutely no training or scholarly approach to developing expertise in academic administration. The vast majority of academic administrators end up there because by sheer dumb fucken lucke, they happen to be decent at it (or not). In the world of business, management is an entire area of scholarly inquiry and practical engineering that is viewed as central to business success. In academia it is looked upon as a necessary evil (or even, by many self-absorbed delusional faculty, as an unnecessary evil).
If academics don’t embrace management theory and practice to the same extent that business people do, then the trend of hiring corporate d00ds who aren’t academics to manage academic institutions is going to accelerate. To the extent that academics don’t like this trend, they need to sacke the fucke uppe and adopt a scholarly and practical approach to academic managment.
