Organisation design: roles & structures

People are at the heart of any process.  The organisation design workstream is therefore a critical part of the Transforming Research Management project.  This covers a review of the roles and structures required to improve the support for research management.  The aim of the organisation design workstream is to provide improved support for principal investigators.  This will be achieved by:

  • Providing “cradle to grave” support
  • Ensuring clear roles, responsibilities and accountabilities
  • Minimising “hand-offs” throughout the process
  • Ensuring that the roles are aligned with the new end to end processes
  • Developing dedicated roles and structures for research management support
  • Ensuring that people have the required skills and knowledge through appropriate training and development
