Rick Walker

Programme Manager

I joined the University in September 2015 as Project Manager for the Business Intelligence project, part of Transformation. The project delivered a dozen key strategic report products to the business supporting evidence based decision making whilst simultaneously changing the way the team operates. The legacy is an Agile/Scrum delivery unit, new governance structure representing interests across the University and upgraded IT hardware and software infrastructure.

Other projects and initiatives I am/have been involved with include: Effective Learning Analytics; ePDR; Curriculum 2021; Project Medicine.

Prior to joining the University I spent 4 years in IT and management consulting with Accenture. I also worked as general manager for an SME in the South West in the construction industry. My final 2 roles before joining the University were within Kingfisher Plc. working initially in Screwfix and then B&Q supporting development of their energy efficiency business and subsequently as project manager within a £30M kitchen and bathroom programme.

Please get in touch if you’d like to know more about how the Strategic Delivery Unit can support you.
