The Transformations programme is aimed at supporting institutional staff across 57 university project's to effect large-scale organisational change, underpinned by ICT, where there is an objective to enhance student experience, improve operational efficiency, and enhance organisational capability for business and community engagement.
JISC is supporting the project staff to realise one or more of these objectives through the deployment of existing JISC and non-JISC resources, and through the assisted uptake of business-led and strategic management approaches to delivering transformational change.
Programme Strand A - Enhanced student experience
Enhancing the student experience, is focused on organisation wide initiatives that will significantly transform the student experience, through the application business led approaches and assisted uptake of previous JISC work.
Lawrie Phipps, Transformations Programme Manager
Programme Strand B - Improved efficiency and/or cost savings
These organisational change and system integration projects make best use of various approaches and technologies – some of which are available as JISC resources – that institutional senior managers are investing in as effective information management solutions to organisational efficiency.
Sarah Dunne, Programme Manager
Programme Strand C - Enhanced organisational capability for business and community engagement
Strand C is intended to enable institutions to enhance their organisational capability for strategic business and community engagement (BCE) institution-wide, by using appropriate JISC resources (and others) to develop areas of particular benefit to BCE, such as business intelligence, virtual communication and relationship management.
Simon Whittemore, Programme Manager, Business and Community Engagement
Programme Strand D - Improved environmental performance
Improving Environmental Performance projects are using a number of resources that have come out JISC’s Innovation Programmes in the area of Green ICT. Environmental improvement will, of course, often go hand in hand with other efficiencies and in corporate social responsibility and reputational issues.
