Strategy

Does your structure match your strategy and people? How will you make the right choices amongst competing priorities and build a sustainable future? How can you deliver value for your students, employees, local region and businesses? How will you deliver a surplus and where will it be invested?

These big decisions need to be taken in the context of shifting policy, increased regulation, new technology and heightened competition, but they also need to inform operational plans . And all of this is more likely to succeed when they are inclusive and collaborative, developed and implemented with stakeholder involvement.

From organisational design and restructure, strategy development to operational priorities, from financial planning to student experience, our experts help to shape your future. We work with senior leadership teams to drive forward organisational change on a range of strategic issues. These include reviewing your plans and provision for equality and diversity, widening participation, health and safety and facilities as well as student retention or policy development .

We also offer executive coaching to develop your leadership team, run workshops with your teams to develop their skills or create shared experiences, or can supply interim management across a range of professional services.

We understand the context in the broader higher education industry, in the nonprofit sector and also how you work internally. This doesn’t mean we don’t challenge the status quo, but it does mean that we understand the sensitivities and/or politics and can find collaborative ways around them.
