A group of committed individuals is working with the Business Transformation programme to support you in the changing workplace. They are our change champions and, most of all, they are your champions, advocating for you in your Schools and Directorates.
We have chosen change champions who are people-oriented and enthusiastic communicators. These are some of their goals:
‘I would like to do whatever I can to ensure the transition process runs smoothly.’
‘I want to share the prospect of new processes that will streamline and modernise our current methods.’
‘We need to emphasise how change is both good and necessary for the future of the University. It will take hard work to make it happen. I’m up for hard work.’
As we prepare for the launch of OneUniversity Finance in March, you can turn to your Change Champion for guidance, reassurance and information.
The important role of the change champion is to focus on people and:
- Communicate the need and nature of the change to their teams
- Identify the impact the change will have on their colleagues
- Present the benefits of the change and let you know ‘What’s in it for you’
- Help prepare you for working with the new solution

This week sees the start of a regular blog feature ‘Change Champion Chats’ where you can meet the individuals engaged in changing your future.
