Presenter: Dr Bryony Wakefield, Research Services Solutions.

Supporting research activity is a complex task involving a myriad of activities. As such, business processes to support the management of research needs to be constantly evolving to ensure researchers and other stakeholder expectations are being met.

Business process improvement enables you to identify areas where you can improve accuracy, effectiveness and/or efficiency and then redesign those processes to realise improvements. This course will introduce you to process improvement methodologies, with a focus on how to develop your own value stream map to improve a research management process. You will also learn about the value of cross-functional teams, approaches to listening and learning from end users and how agile ways of working can enable you to better refine priorities and continually improve processes.
