Kurt presented his Top 10 Success Criteria for Competency-Based Education
As a consultant, I have the opportunity to influence the strategic initiatives for universities and colleges considering CBE for their courses and degree programs. It is imperative for university leaders to have an understanding of the challenges and opportunities with CBE so they set realistic expectations in their strategic plans. Based on research, and my own experiences with successful CBE programs at Western Governors University and Capella University, I have developed the following top 10 success criteria for CBE:

"We contracted with Adrienne to help us develop a comprehensive communication plan for prospective graduate and extended studies students. Adrienne did a great job of listening and understanding our needs and delivering an actionable strategy. Her recommendations were data-driven and technology focused, and backed by her extensive knowledge of marketing and higher education. Adrienne was reliable, punctual and a true pleasure to work with. I look forward to working with her again on future projects and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to others."
"Kurt first worked with us to identify the courses that had the most significant retention risk. He then worked with a university task force comprised of key academic leaders, an instructional designer, a project manager, and a resource librarian to create a more rigorous approach to course development, and one that delivers consistent experience across all modes of delivery."
"In the six months that Dr. Linberg has consulted with us, he has advanced the expertise of our faculty regarding the application of deeper learning practices and pushed us to develop more engaging course experiences."
"Adrienne seeks complete understanding at the outset of a project and utilizes that knowledge as the foundation for her insights and recommendations. Her work is thorough, accurate, actionable and the output is professional and ready for delivery. The analysis she provides allow us and our clients to immediately understand how the output relates to their business goals."
"I have known Dr. Kurt Linberg for eight years. He is the rare individual that has both a 30,000 foot strategic view of how an institution can compete in today's complicated higher education environment, but the ground-level know-how and emotional intelligence that allows him to work effectively with all faculty members at the detailed course level."
"Kurt impressed me with his ability to quickly focus on the most critical activities and produce incredible results in a short time. He was able to use his knowledge of advanced technology programs to assist faculty with much needed enhancements to the graduate programs in Computer Science, Information Systems Management, and Health Informatics."
