When a prospective client needs a new SVP Academic Affairs/Provost the fundamentals apply…..
Discuss with senior leaders and other key constituents what the hired candidate must accomplish by when and then decide whether or not the search should be conducted with the assistance of a proven professional firm that possesses the experience and commitment to your goals.
Are you and your colleagues about to begin a search for a new SVPAA/Provost?
Here are five key issues to discuss:
Search project timeline
Hired candidate KPIs/ by when
Composition of the search committee/experience counts very much here—particularly experience with failed as well as successful searches
Project cost–both hard, out of pocket costs for the search consulting firm as well as soft costs to put together a search committee, monitor progress of the project and make certain that the right outcome is delivered on time and within budget.
Search firm experience, style, track record and degree of commitment to the search assignment.
