Academic Institutions

"Excellent responsiveness, communication and understanding of our objectives…"

University and Public Research Organisation administrators have to manage effectively against a backdrop of diverse, and often conflicting stakeholder expectations..

Students, staff, funding bodies, research sponsors (commercial or charitable), research collaborators, state and federal governments, and of course the public - all have different perspectives and different requirements.

And sometimes, the challenge is as much to garner consensus across the different nodes of the administration, as it is to interface with other stakeholders.

More than ever before, administrators have to apply an eclectic and cross-cultural approach to their managerial tasks. And this is exactly where we can help.
