FromDC2Iowa: Mission and metrics

Excerpted from this post at FromDC2Iowa

Of Mission and Metrics: Iowa Universities Presidents' "Performance
Goals" ... The presidents of Iowa's Board of Regents and its three
universities have announced the "performance goals" for the
universities' presidents -- goals that will guide the Regents in
evaluating the presidents' annual bonuses for superior performance.
Since I've been advocating this for some years, it's rewarding to see
the process started. But, alas, if I were teaching management instead
of law, and these proffered "performance goals" were presented to me
by my students as part of a class writing exercise, I fear they would
be graded somewhere between a "D" and an "F." That's OK in one sense;
I guess, as the Frenchman explained when asked why he kissed women on
the hand, "You have to start somewhere." The effort has begun and I'm
grateful for that.
