  10. 10. Some things I’ve heard from you...
  11. 11. It’s so hard to provide support when every unit looks and feels so different
  12. 12. I feel like I’m continually re-inventing the wheel
  13. 13. I’ve run great training courses... but no one has to come (or thinks they need to)
  14. 14. I think what we’ve done is really good... but I’ve got no way of helping others to do the same
  15. 15. By the time it gets to me, I feel like the important decisions have already been made - and it could have been so much better if I’d been there at the start!
  16. 16. Bringing that together ‣ We’re doing really great stuff: “pockets of excellence” ‣ The student (and staff) experience is really inconsistent ‣ We want to work together, but it’s hard
  17. 17. What that means ‣ We need clear targets & goals ‣ We need a toolkit to identify and strive for the highest quality ‣ It must balance consistency and flexibility ‣ We need new ways to work together
  18. 18. Aligned not constrained ‣ The best of what you’re doing ‣ Balancing consistency and flexibility ‣ Sharing our success ‣ Efficiency, satisfaction, quality
