Changing Universities

On Friday I attended the Association of University Administratorsopen forum Managing Change. This is the third of these annual events and interesting war stories are always exchanged. Unfortunately the Chatham House rule was in operation, so I can't discuss what I heard very freely.


What I will do is to post a link to the group's online resource Changing Universities, and encourage any readers who are involved in managing change in universities to consider getting involved in the group. If nothing else, the meetings provide a level of social support: it gives me reassurance to know that no-one else has completely resolved the issues that I can't resolve either.

  2. Of course you can discuss what you heard, just not who you heard it from. Your own link to these rules says:

    "participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s), nor that of any other participant, may be revealed"

    1. Thanks for your comment. The issue here is that we were sharing war stories. Without the institutional affiliation of the speakers, it is difficult to make much sense of their stories. In any case one should exercise more caution about confidentiality on the web.
