Simon Donoghue
#AUA2017 - Manchester

The workshop considered the landscape of transformational change in universities. Simon and David set out their hypothesis, based upon experience working with a wide range of member universities, that seven common factors are often found within universities that work against effective transformation. The workshop explored how transformation efforts often avoid dealing with these deeply rooted challenges and by circumnavigating them fail to deliver transformation. The workshop drew out participants own experience in tackling these "seven deadly sins" using a world-cafe style approach. The workshop also offered practical insights into approaches in overcoming the challenges associated with transformational change.
