The first two PFA working group events (engaging academics and moving towards implementation), were very well attended and produced lots of useful output for colleagues. Feedback suggests that one issue that many are grappling with right now is around developing the business case for an investment in on-line performance management tools.
Performance Management encompasses a whole range of activities which should ensure your university goals are consistently being met in an effective and efficient manner.
The Performance For All (PFA) project has been working with over 50 Universities, mainly in the UK, but also abroad to understand, develop and trial performance management solutions for the HE sector. The approach to performance management amongst these universities has been, understandably, extremely varied but important themes and issues are beginning to emerge.
On the 28th of November PFA is holding an event for HROs at which the partner Universities can share some of the approaches, strategic lessons, conversations and actions that are taking place. We will aim to explore in more detail some of the key business drivers that leading to universities worldwide putting sophisticated performance management systems and processes in place and what these look like, as well as looking at the risks and/or benefits of different approaches. We will also consider the role and impact performance management can have on the competitiveness of universities and their ability to respond to some of the pressures being faced today both within the UK and abroad.
