Case Study on how the creation of the University's new Leadership and Development Foundation Associate role demonstrates a pioneering approach to leadership development and change capability in Higher Education.
Project leader/s: Sarah Stirk
The case study will produce a proposed model of engagement for professional services and academic staff to demonstrate the value of Leadership and Development Associates (LDFAs) in Faculties and Divisions. It will assess the role of LDFAs and whether they improve the change capability of Universities. The main purpose of an LDFA is to facilitate effective interventions to fully enable staff engagement in major organisational development and transformational change. The aim of the proposed case study, is to produce a model of best practice that fully reflects this purpose (ie. to enable staff engagement in major organisational development and transformational change). LJMU is committed to sharing good practice and the model would be made available for dissemination across the Higher Education sector to enable the wider HE community to benefit from creating similar roles to the LDFAs. This will support change capability and demonstrate impact both for individuals and their institutions.
Research theme/s: Organisational development, Positive cultural and behavioural change.
