The Efficiency Exchange was set up in 2013 in response to the recommendations of the Diamond Review. It is delivered by Universities UK and Jisc in partnership with HEFCE and the Leadership Foundation, and aims to share good practice to help universities work smarter.
Many AHUA members have contributed their knowledge and experiences of introducing new lean practices and challenging change management programmes to their institutions, either through the AHUA blog or directly through the Efficiency Exchange.
Here we share some of those insights and contributions:
Change management is part of the norm for us
We’ve made steps to convince Treasury that efficiency is on our agenda
Everyone wants to get value for money from the things they do
It’s when we work together that we are most effective
You have to be able to challenge things in the right kind of way
Under the veneer of conservatism, universities are constantly reinventing themselves
How are you addressing the efficiency agenda in your institution? Share your thoughts here, or log in to discuss this further on the member forums.
