From virtual learning environments (VLEs) to social media, from cloud services to web filtering, your organisation uses technology to improve the student experience in countless creative and effective ways.
And if you’ve recently reviewed the ways you use technology across your organisation – in the form of our digital strategy review, for example – then you’ll probably have uncovered plenty of good practice, along with areas where you’re keen to improve.
But as you prepare to develop your digital strategy, it’s vital to work together across teams – so stakeholders can take ownership of the digital objectives they need to put in place.
We offer specialist consultancy support to help you make this happen – and start preparing for digital transformation.
How our consultancy service benefits you
This service is designed to help you:
Work together on a digital vision
To prepare for your digital future, it’s vital to identify what you want from digital, where sticking points lie in getting things done, and where technology can be used or changed to improve the experience for students.
We help you work on developing this vision, based on your specific leadership priorities as an organisation.
Develop cross-functional objectives
To improve the student experience, it’s important that ownership of technology goes far beyond leadership or the IT team.
We help you work together to develop strategic technology objectives that each implementation team can own.
How the service works
This is a chargeable consultancy service, which we can adapt to your specific needs as an education organisation. Our subject specialists are happy to work in the way that best suits you.
As a recommended part of the service, we offer two half-day workshops, which we can target to your specific needs. These facilitated sessions can help your steering group to:
Develop their vision
Identify key strategic areas
Agree owners for those areas
Plan the process of setting strategic objectives via stakeholder engagement
To help you generate ideas, we can deliver the workshops to a group of up to 30 people.
We can also support you with specific projects, for example to match departmental strategies to your digital vision; and we are happy to offer ‘critical friend’ support on any issues you may be facing as you prepare for digital practice.
