Trickling Down to the Individual

This chapter examines how the BRI is implemented locally at universities. A distinction is made between hard and soft implementation. Hard implementation indicates the extent to which BRI points are used in the distribution of resources while soft implementation refers to other uses of the BRI system as a management tool. The chapter also develops a measure of the extent to which the BRI has reached the individual faculty member. What is evident from these analyses is the existence of considerable differences in the degree of implementation across universities and departments. The implementation variable is obviously one of the major explanatory factors included in most of the subsequent chapters.
