- The Building and Property Division (BPD) at Monash University is looking for external support to align its various stakeholder groups towards a common strategic vision.
- The BPD requires a forward thinking long-term vision that considers critical drivers up to 30 or 40 years into the future.
- The BPD is looking for external support to assist with the guidance and development of its strategy and subsequent framing of the change agenda.
- The BPD requires the development of a strategy vision through July and August through strong engagement with all staff.
- The BPD wants to catalyze its workforce to dream up, and own that vision in a strategic and proactive way.
- The BPD intends to explore what is required to achieve the strategy throughout September to December including detailed plans and a business case, for the commencement of 2018.
2. SCOPE OF WORK
The scope of support recommended includes:
One to one meetings with approximately 15 key stakeholders, resulting in a shared understanding of what is important to the BPD, and the identification of key themes and areas of focus.
Facilitated Future Crunch Vision Workshops
Inspiring and engaging facilitated workshops with staff and managers across the BPD, typically two to three hours in length. These will cover long term technological, organisational and workplace trends relevant to the facilities management industry. Designed to bring the entire division to the conversation through active contributions, give them ownership of the strategy, and craft an opportunity-based mindset around change.
Facilitated Future Crunch Experiential Design for the Leadership Team
A focus on refinement of ideas developed through earlier consultations. Each workshop will include insights on the future of facilities management from world experts working on campuses of the future for both the private and research sectors. See here for more detail. These ideas will be embedded through a tailored, off-site experience over a 24 hour, 5pm to 5pm period.
A set of cultural and values statements that clearly and succinctly capture the culture required to support the BPD's strategy.
Program on a Page
Single page program overview that covers the who, what, why, when and how for the BPD's change agenda.
To support the implementation of the change agenda to achieve the BPD's strategy, it is recommended that ongoing change support be provided to assist in the development of change skills. This activity should be assessed throughout the development of the program on a page to ensure that the change will be appropriately supported prior to change activities occurring in 2018.
3. ENGAGEMENT APPROACH
The engagement consists of two key stages of engagement over July and August:
Readiness consultations, and design and planning of the subsequent activities based on the findings in the consultations
Mid-July to late August
Future Vision and Experiential Design Workshops (3 x 3 hour workshops with staff, and 1 x 24 hour experience for leadership team)
A suggested activity for September and October is the development of a Values Statement and Program on a Page.
Change Readiness Report
Summary of findings and key themes relating the development of future strategy
Design of engagement sessions
Journal report and briefing to senior leadership from engagement sessions
Recommended next steps based on findings, likely to include the development of a Values Statement and Program on a Page in preparation for a program launch in 2018.
The proposed engagement structure is based on an approach that leverages BPD resources to build internal capabilities whilst providing external support. An experienced team will be assigned to oversee the engagement, provide specialist expertise on change using the Transformation3 methodology, and facilitate engagement with senior stakeholders. Speakers and external experts will be engaged throughout the process/workshops to bring in cutting edge research, and world class insights on the future trends of facilities management.
Consulting fees are invoiced at the successful completion and acceptance of a set of agreed milestones. All resources are charged at $1,800 + GST per day. The estimated overall cost is $35,000 to $45,000, depending on implementation details. This will include all staff time, workshops, off-site accommodation and venue hire, catering and development and delivery of reports.
