Other than formal leadership training/courses … What leadership lessons have you learned along the way? What activities or venues proved to be a source of leadership learning?

Barriers to the Approval of Proposals – Snap Poll Results

The initial results from a July, 2016 snap poll targeted to higher ed online learning and innovation professionals suggest that the connection to senior leadership is perceived as a key barrier to achieving approval of proposals.  Of the 71 individuals that responded to the poll, 90% indicated that an understanding of and access to senior leaderships has been a barrier to the approval of proposals.  64% cited institutional resources, 21% noted linking to the strategic plan and collaborators, 12% mentioned their technical knowledge and skills in preparing proposals, and 3% named faculty cooperation as obstacles to their ability to garner approval for their online learning and innovation proposals.
