Creating a place for knowledge sharing, collaboration, support and guidance for staff involved in Business Improvement activities across College

Our Community of Practice for Business Improvement creates a place for knowledge sharing, collaboration, support and guidance for staff involved (or those that want to be) in Business Improvement activities across College. Our Community covers these four areas:

  • Project Management
  • Change Management
  • Operational Improvement
  • Business Process Management

Our Community exists within Microsoft Teams. Don't worry if you have never heard of Teams before or don't know how to use it - we've provided guidance to help get you started and we are in the Community every day so you can ask any questions you have.

We know the value of meeting face to face too, so we will invite you to come along to specific community events too.

Please click on the button to the right to request to join and be part of our growing online community.
