Supporting the Development and Implementation of Organisational Systems and Processes

Research Management often requires the implementation of new systems and processes to underpin the delivery of effective working practices. The need for change can be sparked by both internal and external drivers, and require research managers to formulate, commission or implement new IT systems or management processes.

This workshop is designed to give attendees an understanding of project management techniques and how they can be applied in the implementation of new systems and processes. Case studies will draw on the principles of implementing new research/grant management systems and the key principles in successfully implementing a new system and processes in universities.

In addition, there will be opportunities for individuals to discuss their own system or process implementation project, and get feedback from other attendees and the presenters on their plans.

By the end of the workshop, participants will understand:

  • how to apply a project management approach to the implementation of new processes and systems within a research environment.
  • how to practically support the development of new systems and processes within their own organisation.
  • some of the ‘common pitfalls’ associated with implementing new systems, and how to avoid them.

Target Audience

This workshop is aimed at research managers and administrators involved in project managing or implementing a new system or process in either a university or in a funding organisation.
