Launching the Participative Process Review (PPR) tool kit sector wide by Ian Whiting · October 27, 2015 We are delighted to announce the launch of the new Participative Process Review Tool Kit , a collaborative endeavour with the Leadership Foundation in Higher Education through its Innovation and Transformation scheme. This toolkit has been specifically designed to enable staff groups to facilitate their own Participative Process Reviews. The first section provides advice on how to approach what we see as true participation, which has been validated through our research giving you an indication of the direct and indirect benefits you may gain for your own organisation. The second part of the tool kit contains all the materials to deliver and evaluate your workshop. This includes powerpoint presentation with facilitator observation notes and delegate handouts. All are designed to be customised by you to fit your circumstances. The third section provides a quick overview of the 6 key stages involved in carrying out a process review. After undertaking workshops in seven different HEIs (including 17 at Oxford Brookes), the PPR project team produced a report of the findings and eight case studies. The project found that performing process reviews can result in significant efficiency savings for teams and that the participatory nature of a PPR brought teams closer together and highlighted issues that might otherwise have been overlooked. We are indebted to our collaborative partners SUMS Consulting and Belanda Consulting together with the 6 other Universities who participated in the trial.
