“Oh, no, not again” as UH does it yet again—‘cause that’s what they do
New UH basketball coach Eran Ganot is about three weeks into his job, but still doesn't have a signed contract.

The University of Hawaii management has followed the model once again—the garbage can model. From today’s editorial page:
No one can be blamed for thinking, "Oh no, not again!"
New UH basketball coach Eran Ganot is about three weeks into his job, but still doesn't have a signed contract. Oddly enough, that's how things started with his predecessor, whose ill-fated stint is still being contractually argued.

“Oh no, not again” is the model. Without a management structure to dictate otherwise, an administrator simply rummages around in the garbage can to pick a solution. Heck, we did it this way last time…
The solution? Someone at their business school knows the solution. If their graduates managed with the same philosophy the university uses to manage itself, the business school would have been, well, out of business long ago.
