An Advance HE (formerly Leadership Foundation) project, Integrated Thinking & Reporting, helped universities explore, test and evaluate the concept of value through the lens and principles of Integrated Reporting, building on from BUFDG’s work in the sector. Integrated Reporting is a strategic approach to communicating how an organisation uses resources to create value for its stakeholders
Supported by funding from Hefce, Hefcw and Northern Ireland, the project worked with 10 UK institutions and used the IIRC framework as a starting point to consider the concept of value creation (and also what destroys it) in higher education.
There are three ways to engage:

The topic of value and Integrated Thinking and Reporting will be debated and explored at the Let's Talk Value Conference 2020 on 11 February 2020 in London.
You can also join in the conversation on Integrated Thinking and Reporting in the Advance HE Connect Let’s Talk Value Group.
