Resources

Creating Value has produced two interim reports, which summarise the evidence base for the online resource.

The first interim report (Word doc) is based on a literature review of 35 sources. It summarises some key principles for delivering efficiencies successfully, as well as some promising mechanisms for delivering efficiencies in HE.

The second interim report (Word doc) draws together all the evidence from the literature review, and interviews with managers who have delivered efficiencies successfully. It contains more detailed information on challenges, key principles for delivering efficiencies, considerations for senior managers, and approaches to use in delivering efficiencies.

The final project research report (Word doc) draws together all the evidence from the three strands of the project- the literature review, interviews, and trial projects in the four participating universities. There is also a sources of information (Word doc) paper which briefly summarises the different pieces of literature used in the research, which embedded links where possible.

The project was also involved in running a conference called Creating value: Delivering more with less in HE. The event focused on different approaches to delivering efficiencies, and the presentations from the day can be downloaded below:

In addition, there are a few websites of particular interest to those looking to deliver efficiencies in their university:
