Indonesian Higher Education - Building Leader Competencies towards World Class Quality

Dyah Kusumastuti, Sri Astuti Pramaningsih

Abstract

Global competitive advantages have shifted from cheap manufacturing to managing knowledge. If Indonesia wishes to partake in this 21st century competition, it will have to revolutionize its knowledge industry. Pivotal in this is the effective leadership and management of its higher education institutions (HEIs). The issue is that Indonesian HEIs have been shackled by practices that prevent creativity and innovation, the very characteristics needed to effectively manage knowledge. The research reported here aims to identify competencies that would meet the requirements above and then seek if Indonesia has such HEIs leaderships. This would allow appropriate conclusion to be derived in respect of upgrading HEIs’ leaderships across the country. Extensive literature survey was conducted to identify those competencies recognized by global leadership experts. Seven Indonesian HEIs listed in QS and Ministry of Research, Technology and Higher Education rankings and 40 of their leadership level officials are chosen as sample to gauge the current status in this respect. Statistical data processing is used in analyzing survey responses from the sample. The results identified 15 competencies grouped into three clusters of dealing with Self, with People and with Job. From the survey of the sample of Indonesian HEIs’ leaders, it is found that serious and extensive leadership training for HEIs’ leaders in Indonesia is urgently needed.
