ECM Faculty Focus
Following discussions with the Co-Chairs of the Strategic Review 2009 and the ECM Summit, a minor change has been made to the review process.
This change will ensure wide and open consultation whilst making the review process more efficient, and to ensure that the valuable input from the Faculty is received without significant burden on current workloads.
The change involves removing the second of the three workshops originally planned, and and incorporating feedback into the issues paper as part of the submissions process. As such, the broad process of the review is now as follows:
- Open scoping workshop designed to collect information from the Faculty about the current issues, performance, and practices;
- Development and publication of an Issues/Scoping Paper
- Submissions open to the Faculty on both the issues/scoping paper and to allow initial input into the development of options by the Co-Chairs
- Development and publication of an Options Paper, which sets out and analyses a number of options for the Faculty for the future;l
- Open workshop on options, to allow the Faculty to provide feedback and suggestions on the options paper and other principles, options and recommendations that may be considered by the Co-Chairs
- Development of a consolidated final report by the Co-Chairs, incorporating each of the areas, and submitted to the Dean and the Vice-Chancellor
- Full Faculty Workshop on the final consolidated paper, in which the recommendations will be presented to the Faculty, with a further opportunity for feedback on the proposals;
- Finalisation and operationalisation of the Strategic Review plan.
Staff are encouraged to make submissions on the issues paper or any other aspect of the terms of reference, including suggestions for future principles, models and options that could be used by the Faculty to achieve our goals. The guidelines for making submissions are available on the Strategic Review website.
Refvised documents will shortly be placed on the Strategic Review website to reflect this change in process.
This change in process has been considered fully and is designed to ensure that the Strategic Review continues in a open and consultative way whilst making it an efficient process and ensure it is completed in the neccessary time frame.
Staff with any questions or concerns are encouraged to contact the Manager, Special Projects on the details below.
