Change manager

A change manager works with a Community of Learning| Kāhui Ako to plan, develop and implement a programme of change at an organisational level. This could include identifying the systems, processes and resources required to support the ongoing development of the Community of Learning.

A change manager would work closely with the leadership of a Community of Learning to support their roles and manage change in specific areas. They would typically be engaged for several months. 

Note: the change manager is a different role to an expert partner, and has a different skill set.   An expert partner assists with developing and implementing the educational achievement challenges.   Therefore, the consultants who provide change management support are different from our existing expert partners.  

A change manager can offer advice and practical support in:

  • forming a Community of Learning
  • creating a shared vision and culture of collaboration
  • helping boards of trustees work together better
  • stakeholder management planning
  • sharing and standardising business processes and systems
  • establishing effective processes and ways of working.

Panel

We have collated a panel of suitably qualified change managers to choose from. These organisations have a strong background in change management as well as in coaching leaders in governance, project management, planning, monitoring and building teams.
