Go Ahead, Challenge Your Outsourced Program Management Provider

Making the strategic decision to seek an expert third party to support your program strategy, enrollment, academics, and operations is one thing. Identifying the right partner is another.

With a variety of Outsourced Program Management (OPM) solutions on the market today, it’s no wonder institutions can get bogged down in navigating the landscape and differentiating the providers.  But that shouldn’t stop institutions from challenging their OPM provider and asking the tough questions. What contract and financial terms does the provider require, how is its technology different, how much insight are educators given, and what happens if and when the  institution is ready to go it alone?

This is where Helix Education’s new eBook can help. “Navigating the OPM Landscape: Partnership Strategies for Sustainable Growth” gives institutions a scorecard to help them see how OPM providers stack up against each other, and make an educated decision about which provider is the right one for them.

The eBook also dives into considerations for choosing the right Outsourced Program Management partner so institutions can ask the tough question around topics such as:

  • Data transparency
  • Partnership philosophy
  • Technology capabilities
  • Contractual and financial terms

This comes on the heels of the release of Helix Enable, our own uniquely partner-focused Outsourced Program Management model that is disrupting the legacy models colleges and universities struggle with currently.  Helix Enable can transform your institution’s ability to connect with the right prospective students, qualify them, and build relationships that result in measureable student success. We keep you in the know, we help you protect your hard-earned tuition dollars, and we train you to do it yourself if and when you are ready.

Whatever the right OPM model is for you, we encourage you to know the facts, consider the advice, and be ready to make the most of your partnership.
