We are pleased to welcome Laura Roper and Susanne Clarke from Bournemouth University who will be visiting to deliver our next continuous improvement seminar

Discover the transformative power of the KIND AP-3 Framework in our upcoming fun, and engaging workshop! Immerse yourself in an interactive session where we explore and discuss how this innovative framework seamlessly integrates traditional lean methodologies with appreciative inquiry and positive organisational scholarship.

Appreciative Inquiry and Positive Organisational Scholarship bring numerous benefits to organisations. Appreciative Inquiry fosters a positive workplace culture by focusing on strengths, fostering collaboration, and inspiring innovation. It encourages a shift from problem-solving to appreciating and amplifying what is already working well. On the other hand, Positive Organisational Scholarship emphasises the study of positive aspects within an organisation, promoting resilience, well-being, and exceptional performance. Together, Appreciative Inquiry and Positive Organisational Scholarship contribute to increased employee engagement, improved organisational morale, and enhanced problem-solving capacities, ultimately fostering a more vibrant and thriving work environment that drives sustainable success.

Don't miss out on this opportunity to see Laura and Susanne show how we can extend Lean principles to cater specifically to Higher Education whilst you enhance your professional skills and broaden your perspective.

A Community of Practice (CoP) is a group of people who share a common passion, set of problems, or interest in a topic and who come together to fulfil both individual and group goals.

  • Share knowledge and join up related work
  • Share common approaches
  • Collaborate and innovate, and create better practices for everyone.

Come along to this session to find out more about how CoPs are being established and embedded at Cambridge, and the ways in which they could help you and those who you manage. There will be the opportunity to share ideas and concerns you have about the CoPs initiative and learn more about this exciting new area of development in the University.

Speed Mentoring event new Thu 30 May 2024   14:00   [More dates...] [Places]

Have you ever wished you could get 10 minutes with a senior colleague to ask their advice on how they would handle something? Have you ever wondered how others approach challenging problems? This is your opportunity to ask. We are bringing together a panel of very experienced colleagues from across the University for a special speed mentoring session so that they can offer you their support and advice.

Speed mentoring offers you the opportunity for a series of short, focused conversations about a specific question or issue you are struggling with. You will rotate around four different mentors, spending around 10 minutes with each, to gain different perspectives on an issue you are seeking to resolve or a project you are trying to progress.

"I liked that there were a diverse background of university staff involved in the session, and all of the mentors were really engaged and enthusiastic. I felt that I could be honest about some of my experiences in the University, good and bad. All the mentors I spoke to acted as a good sound board for the issues that I wanted to discuss and they have given me some excellent advice and ideas."

"The fact that we saw 4 different mentees was brilliant - we gained different perspectives, saw different mentoring types and were also introduced to people and roles we may not have known about."

Mentors:

• Zara Sheldrake - Business Architect, University Information Services.

• Bukky Gray - TM and HR Manager, University Development and Alumni Relations.

• Elle Bateman - Head of Assurance, Governance and Compliance Division.

• Ros Alexander - Organisational Development Consultant, Human Resources Division.

• Kate Livingstone - Head of Digital Transformation, University Information Services.

• Steph Hall - Scientific Operations Manager, Wellcome Trust Medical Research.
