Invitation to AAU Management Development (MADEV) Workshop

THEME: Strategic Thinking and Change Management: Key for African Universities|

18-21 February, 2020 | Mauritius

The workshop will look at the Concept of Strategic Thinking and Management and their application in the context of Universities and other Tertiary institutions in planning, decision-making, control and operations.

The current global competition requires tertiary institutions to excel in knowledge-creation which is relevant to solving societal problems. There is therefore the compelling need for vice-chancellors to strategically shape how institutional activities are conducted. Without a well articulated and easily implementable strategy, vice-chancellors struggle to proactively plan and run their institutions.  The Road Map to distinguishing an institution,  giving it a competitive advantage, and achieving a good overall performance all become unclear when a strong and clear strategy is not in place.  In the absence of a strategy for the Higher Education Institution (HEI) , managers have no overarching business rationale for moulding the actions and decisions initiated across the university into a cohesive whole, no underlying institutional basis for initiating cross department operations into a team effort,  hence no conscious institutional model for generating profits. Crafting, implementing and monitoring an effective strategy assists HEIs to become very successful and stay successful.


This edition of the MADEV Workshop series is designed for: Senior University leaders and managers, Registrars, Deans and Directors of institutes, Heads of Departments, Administrators, Human Resource Managers, and Finance Managers
