The Midland Hotel, Manchester

Everything changes

This year’s UCISA CISG-PCMG17 Annual Conference and Exhibition returns to the Midland Hotel in Manchester.

The Corporate Information Systems Group (CISG) is again partnering with its sister group, Project and Change Management Group (PCMG) to bring you a joint conference covering all aspects of delivering change in our organisations.

We are in times of unprecedented change and uncertainty. Change as our institutions get to grips with increasing competition, both within the UK and globally. Change as new legislation comes into force, bringing increased accountability and reporting, and requiring stronger data management in institutions. Change as technological advances allow new delivery models to be explored and a re-skilling of the workforce to support the new environment. And further disruption is likely with uncertainty about the impact of Brexit and the UK’s standing in the world, questions about the sustainability of the current funding models (and even institutions themselves) and the possibility that the Government will not survive a full term. Change is now the only constant.

The Conference will be highlighting the crossovers and collaborations between the professional communities involved in change in our organisations. There will be big ideas and vision alongside university showcases providing real life examples of HE system change initiatives; sessions will provide practical takeaways and guidance.

Capita FHE will be exhibiting and looks forward to meeting everyone from the sector. Please get in touch with us by emailing enquiries@capitafhe.co.uk if you would like to arrange a meeting during the conference to discuss your college's needs.
