December 2017 to February 2017
Project team and initial work streams were initiated following the outcome of the Vice Chancellor’s Review of CoSS Professional Services
Work streams were led by College Board members and staff volunteers were invited to participate. Over 50 staff input into the proposals and recommendations, these working groups produced a series of high level recommendations to achieve greater consistency across the College.
These proposals were then prioritised and condensed to key areas focusing on Structure, Process and Culture.
March to May 2017
Detailed work to understand the implications of the recommendations took place through:
- Focus Groups
- Individual meetings and small workshops
Attendance at focus groups was open to all and >100 staff participated.
