Overview

The latest edition of Kells's groundbreaking work on deriving the maximum benefit from the self-evaluation process has been extensively rewritten to place a strong emphasis on quality assurance and building a culture of self-regulation within the institution.

The book ably demonstrates how the self-study process is applicable not only to the effective management of institutions, but also to satisfying the requirements of the accreditation process.
