Abstract

There is graving concern over the intrusion of managerialism into academe. The debate often centres on the concept of quality management and involves problematic assumptions about the notions of workload, performance and development. This article problematises these assumptions, with reference to the role of perception and affect in the quantification of workload, the production of performance criteria, and the construction of development programmes. It argues that these activities need to be part of an organic process arising out of specific circumstances. There are real conceptual difficulties involved and any failure to attend to the role of perception and affect will seriously undermine education.


Daar is 'n stygende kommer oor die inbreuk wat bestuurswese op die akademie maak. Die debat sentreer gereeld om die nosie van kwaliteitbestuur en betrek problematiese annnames aangaande die begrippe werkslading, prestasie en ontwikkeling. Hierdie artikel problematiseer dié aannames met verwysing na die rol van persepsies en invloed betreffende die kwantifisering van werkslading, die produksie van prestasiekriteria en die daarstelling van ontwikkelingsprogramme. Daar word geargumenteer dat hierdie aktiwiteite 'n organiese proses behoort te wees wat voortspruit uit spesifieke omstandighede. Werklike konseptuele probleme is hierby betrokke en die onvermoë om aandag te skenk aan die rol van persepsie en invloed kan onderwys ernstig ondermyn.
