    Identifying the graduate outcomes is the easy part. The challenge for universities lies in designing the educational programs that will concurrently and explicitly develop generic attributes, as well as discipline-based knowledge. A holistic approach is required. Few universities in Australia have actually developed a process for determining whether their graduates have achieved those attributes to confirm that the institutional rhetoric has practical outcomes. This chapter outlines the role of a graduation portfolio in higher education to meet the growing needs of industry, as well as the operational pros and cons of implementing such a system in higher education.
