Strategy, Projects and Change

It is essential that universities are able to define and implement strategic change.  This is increasingly important in a sector with institutions with different missions and aims all competing and collaborating with each other.  The most successful institutions have clarity over their own priorities in order to react to changes in their environment, combined with an ability to implement change.  They have competency and capability in strategy development and strategy execution.


Our strategy, projects and change work is outlined in four broad themes.  We work with universities on strategy development and planning to help them create the foundations for any strategic change programme.  Once these are in place, we help them with strategy implementation and change management activities to deliver the strategy.  These are underpinned by the development of capacity and capability in programme and project management.  Our work in this theme is often most effective when we work in partnership with internal change teams.
