Change management (KIA Consultant)

University´s internal consultancy Group

Are you facing a change project? As a leader/manager you can receive support and help from the University’s internal consultancy service, KIA (Swedish acronym for Quality Development in Administration), which is part of the Offices of the Vice-Chancellor, Strategic Development Office.

Help available to you

You can get support in change and development work related to management, organisation and administration for example in the following situations:

  • The organisation has grown rapidly and extensively and support operations need to be adjusted accordingly.
  • You are a new Head of Department/likewise and need to review the support operations.
  • The organisation is facing retirements or other changes and needs to review its structure.
  • The organisation experiences that support, procesesses or routines are not functioning optimally.
  • The organisation wants to  review development opportunities or future scenarios.
  • There is a need to work with vision, strategic plan or operational plan.
  • There is a need to conduct a more comprehensive current state analysis. 

The work starts with you, as a manager /leader contacting someone in the KIA group. See contact details in the contact box.

From whom can you get support?

KIA Consultant is the University’s internal consultancy support in change projects within the support function in matters related to organisation, administration, management and governance. The support is mainly aimed at departments, but faculties and central administration are also included.

Those working with this are a number of employees at the Office of the Vice-Chancellor, Strategic development department. As part of our job, we are KIA consultants and the assignments we carry out are within the ordinary budget, which means that we do not charge our clients.

A variety of assignments within the entire University

Over the years, we have worked with all faculties and most departments, as well as large parts of the University administration divisions.

The assignments are of varying nature and scope. Everything from assignments that can run for a year, to short assignments with a few days of work.  You can receive support with facilitation of workshops, planning days and similiar, with processes mapping and routine reviews, and we can act as a sounding board before and during a development work. 

Many clients come back with new requests after one/some years if there is a need for further support.
