More (and different) change at Deakin U

VC Iain Martin briefs staff this morning “on potential organisational change”

It’s about the “Deakin reimagined” programme which went to staff for feedback in March. And while that was occurring a programme team reporting to the Chief Finance Officer was working on how it can happen.

Which makes change-fatigued staff nervous. The university community endured a long and at time bitterly disputed restructure last year which cut jobs across 15 operating units.

But today is unlikely to be about doing more of the same with less people – DU observers suggest it is about ways to implement, sorry reimagine, Vice Chancellor Iain Martin’s grand-plan to transform the university over the next ten years (CMM December 2).

Which would mean way more change to the way people work now.
