As we trudge into the New Year many projects are getting to grips with developing a baseline and deciding how they will measure the transformational impact of their work. It therefore seems seasonal to revisit a session at last year’s ALT-C conference where we explored these issues.
The ‘Tracks in the Snow’ post on the Curriculum Design and Delivery programme blog summarises some theoretical models that are of relevance and takes a look at how some large scale projects have approached measuring transformation. Hopefully it will provide some food for thought as you start out on this journey.
Finally, if you’re still in holiday mode, remember that Panto season isn’t over yet! You can still watch the video stream of JISC and the Beanstalk from UCISA CISG. The session covers the themes of Cloud Computing, SOA, Product Modularisation, Shared Services and EA. The second half of the session (from about 20 mins) looks at some of the experiences of process improvement from the JISC Flexible Service Delivery programme. You can also go direct to the Improving Organisational Efficiency suite of infoKits to find more tools, tips and case studies on process improvement.
