Medical School Drop In Session

Medical School Drop In Session

The team visited the Medical School at Ninewells recently, to talk to staff about the OneUniversity solution for Finance and Procurement and Research and Projects.

To help explain the changes, the team have a number of charts that they can take users through, there is a presentation and short videos are available to explain specific parts of the process, in addition to key members of the Project Team on hand to answer more complex questions.
The topics that proved of most interest were how to ensure that all costs involved in a research project are put against a project budget, how online expenses will work and details of the new online expenses system.

Help From The Change Champions

Angela Hamilton, Change Manager:
“The Change Champions did a great job in ensuring that people knew we were coming along and encouraging them to take a look at the OneUniversity solution.
“It is important that people are prepared for the changes, and having as much information as possible is helpful in this.”
