Insights

I try hard to make a positive contribution to the organisations and sectors with which I work. One of the ways I seek to do this is by creating and sharing insights into the issues and challenges that they face.

Some of the things I am focusing on at the moment are:

  • academic workload modelling;
  • local government; and
  • strategy in the public and not-for-profit sectors.

If you’d like to know more about my work in these areas, please read on. Or just drop me a line.

Academic workload modelling

Academic workload modelling is an approach to understanding how members of academic staff spend their time when they are at work, from teaching and research to management, administration, academic citizenship and other activities.

I’ve written a how-to guide to workload modelling for higher education institutions, as well as a basic workload modelling template [link coming soon] that institutions can use and build upon.

Local government

I’m currently writing a beginner’s guide to local government in England. It’s taking me a bit of time, as I’m having to fit the research and writing around my other work, so I’ve started publishing each chapter as it’s ready. Read more here.

Strategy in the public and not-for-profit sectors

I’ve only just started thinking about strategy in the public and not-for-profit sectors, but if you’re into this sort of thing and you’d like to get involved, please do get in touch.
