USTREAM peer learning seminar: Efficiency, leadership and governance


The final USTREAM peer learning seminar will stimulate the discussion on how to close the gap between strategy formation and execution in order to achieve sustainable efficiency gains. The focus of the programme will be on identifying critical success factors, research evidence, contemporary strategy implementation practice, and the lived experiences of participants in overcoming barriers to achieve sustainable efficiency gains in our universities.

18 - 19 April 2018

  • The final USTREAM peer learning seminar will stimulate the discussion on how to close the gap between strategy formation and execution in order to achieve sustainable efficiency gains. The focus of the programme will be on identifying critical success factors, research evidence, contemporary strategy implementation practice, and the lived experiences of participants in overcoming barriers to achieve sustainable efficiency gains in our universities.


    Objectives

    While many European universities are initiating strategic transformation programmes for various purposes, the research evidence consistently shows that something like 70 per cent of all transformation programmes in all sectors fail to meet their objectives. To address this issue, the participants in the workshop will engage in a moderated discussion of the key ingredients of strategy implementation in universities, such as effective institutional leadership (comprising both governance and management); organisational operating models and structure; and institutional culture, contributing to achieving sustainable efficiency gains.

    Participants

    The seminar will bring together ca. 20 institutional leaders experienced in steering institutional transformation programmes. The event will be of special interest to rectors, vice rectors, or other members of the universities’ leadership team, as well as public officials at national higher education ministries and controlling agencies overseeing efficiency related matters.
