Brunel Business School celebrated being nominated for the Times Higher Education Leadership and Management Awards 2014 (THELMAs) last night at a Gala dinner at the Grosvenor House Hotel in Park Lane, London.
The nomination for the Outstanding Strategic Planning Team, a third nominations from the Times Higher Education in the last two years, was an honour to the School, showing recognition for our continuous effort in striving for excellence and making a change in Higher Education. The Business School has previously won the Times Higher Education Business School of the Year award in November 2013 and a nomination for the November 2014 awards has again been submitted.
The Outstanding Strategic Planning Team, a category for which the School has been nominated on this occasion,
“recognises the exceptional performance from a team which has made a significant and demonstrable impact on strategic change across the university. The judges looked for clear contributions to strategic planning, such as improvements to the evidence base supporting institutional decision-making, the development and implementation of change management programmes, or improvements to institution-wide operational processes in support of defined strategic objectives. The nominated teams were required to show how their work has influenced decision-making at a strategic level and explain the way in which clearly identified challenges have and will be met as a result of their work, and demonstrate that impact in a measurable way. ” as explained on THELMAs website.
