• Strategic Change and Planning

    The Strategic Change and Planning (SCAP) team joined the ASA directorate in August 2019 and forms its newest division. It is managed by Maritza Miranda, Deputy Director of Academic and Student Administration - Strategic Change and Planning.

    SCAP's vision is to be "your partner in making Brookes its life-changing best – using its impartial evidence and planning skills to make a difference across the University".

    The division covers four key areas - Business Analytics and Performance, Planning & Market Insights, Statutory Returns and Strategic Change - working across four teams.

  • Head of Strategic Change and Projects Governance Team: Andy Ball

    The Strategic Change and Projects Governance Team was formed in 2018 to provide oversight, control and support to the many change projects and initiatives across the University.

    It supports the Strategic Change Board in delivering their delegated responsibilities from the Vice Chancellor's Group:

    • to provide strategic oversight and leadership of major aspects of change across the University, and
    • to ensure that appropriate decisions are made regarding prioritisation, assurance, planning and strategic risk. The team works with faculties and directorates from the early stages of project initiation, through to benefits realisation and transition to a steady state.

    The team also undertakes process reviews and continuous improvement activity, in support of the University's priorities, as well as accredited project management training. You can find out more about the team and the projects underway by visiting our Projects Website.

    ART consists of two teams: Internal Student Reporting and Modelling Analysis and Resource Planning. These teams are led by Head of Internal Student Reporting, Ken Burch and Head of Modelling Analysis and Resource Planning, Michael Panagopulos.
