UCISA - Project and Change Management Group, January Meeting
The Project and Change Management Group was set up to provide a forum for the discussion, development and dissemination of information on best practice approaches to project management, change management and related activities within UK higher and further education institutions We aim to meet as a committee every quarter. Edinburgh Napier University hosted January 2015 meeting. As ever it was a packed agenda (the minutes and agendas of all of the meeting are available via UCISAs website https://www.ucisa.ac.uk/groups/pcmg/minutes.aspx
The main agenda items were the Effective Risk Management Guide; this was published just before Christmas and is the second formal output form this group. We have a couple more in the pipeline, which is very exciting.
The other major item was planning for our first formal event, this will be held on 10 June 2015, with the title "Project and Change Management - why bother?" We are finalising speakers and workshops, and look forward to releasing the agenda shortly.
