About the Project Find out more about the ‘Leading, Governing and Managing Enterprising Universities’ below… What – The 18 month project is one of seven that form HEFCE’s flagship ‘Leading Transformational Change’ programme and sets enterprise and meeting the future challenges facing higher education at the heart of its mission. Read more about transformational change on the Leadership Foundation website… Why – Higher education in the UK faces a wide array of challenges. Some of the challenges are immediate and arise from the economic downturn while others are longer-term and stem from changes in the higher education market as a result of the new fees structure. Universities need to focus on agility and speed, changing operating models, and developing brand, mission and reputation; in effect they will need to be more enterprising, able ‘to change, take risks, to innovate and to generate and implement new ideas and new ways of doing things’ (Enterprise Insight, 2009). The ‘Leading, Governing and Managing Enterprising Universities’ project aims to assist higher education institutions in successfully meeting these immediate and longer term challenges. Visit the project’s ‘Knowledge & Outputs’ page where you can view our: typology map of the higher education sector; data resource tool; institutional case studies; and, best practice toolkits. Click here Who – The project is led by Nottingham University and Nottingham Trent University in partnership with several local businesses who have very kindly agreed to share their knowledge with our students.
