Event Details

Overview
The focus of the Strategic Leadership Programme for Deans is to discuss central themes that any dean and director faces in one or another form, and with priorities that may vary between business schools and over time. Hesburgh (1999: 59) noted:

“To be great, an academic institution needs a great faculty, a great student body, and great facilities. In order to have all these things, it needs substantial endowment, which means you have to learn how to raise money – lots of it. And finally, a great university needs to be imbued with a great spirit, which is an inspirational and cohesive kind of ambience, and not just a lot of separate parts that operate around a central heating plant.”

Please note that the programme will be limited to 20 participants.

Target group
Deans or Director General of the entire institution with overall school management responsibility.

Session 5: From staffing sufficiency to talent management
Proposed content: having an appropriate faculty complement is a significant challenge for deans. Our business schools are large, complex, working in high-value settings and typically international in outlook and activity. Increasingly, we are looking to recruit and often opportunities in progression for subject specialist and also function specialists (research, learning and teaching, connections with practice, executive and professional education, and in some cases also faculty management).
In my session, I will offer a framework, some reflections on how I have managed this over the past four years, and some observations as to my understandings of others’ practices.
