University of Dundee Change Champions recently held their inaugural meeting in the Dalhousie Building on City Campus. The Change Champions are members of staff from all disciplines, schools and campuses, who have volunteered to learn more about the transformation programme and OneUniversity solution on behalf of their teams.
The Change Champions are able to ensure that the views of their teams are represented in Business Transformation and can feed back information regarding how it will affect them. The champions knowledge and understanding of the new processes will help them provide front line advice when we move to the new ways of working.
After a welcome from Dr Jim McGeorge, the team were introduced to staff working on the programme, who went through the issues that Business Transformation is tackling and what it is aiming to do. This was followed by a discussion on the members’ opinions of how they felt the changes should be introduced to their teams.
In future sessions, the group will split into teams that will look at individual subject areas that are of particular interest in order to help everyone change the way they work. This will be an excellent way to test how OneUniversity handles common issues and the Change Champions will be able to take this knowledge back to their teams.
