Members of the Board of Governors, the system president, legislators and the general administration, among others, told the Boston Consulting Group — hired to audit the system after Margaret Spellings was selected — they understood what defined each stakeholders’ “swim lanes.”
“But you were also clear that those swim lanes have not always been honored over the last couple years,” said J. Puckett, senior partner and managing director for the firm. “And that people have gotten out of their swim lanes, and that they’ve done that because they’ve been uncomfortable.”
Puckett presented preliminary findings Friday at the BOG’s retreat.
The Boston Consulting Group has completed around 140 of its intended 150 interviews with board members, general administration leaders, chancellors, faculty and student leaders and legislators. The firm’s representatives visited UNC-Chapel Hill Jan. 7.
