Project and Change Management Group



Who we are

The Project and Change Management Group brings together and supports all those who deliver change. Our aim is to collaborate, learn and share information designed to promote better execution and management of projects and change initiatives.


What we do

When it comes to managing change, we offer a support network of peers to help you do the right stuff in the right way. Change Management is a key focus for Project Managers, Business Analysts, Procurement staff, and Change Managers as well as the decision-makers sponsoring the change investment. This Group embraces the diversity of roles and skills involved in change and offers opportunities to network, collaborate, innovate and share expertise and experience.


Get involved

Group members are like-minded people interested in taking a proactive role in the development of their area of expertise/interest. If you share that interest, please feel free to join the Project and Change Management Group email list hosted by JISCmail and take advantage of the opportunity to network closely with others at different institutions and get the inside view on how they are tackling the problems we all face.

Member Email lists

Group discussion lists are to be used by members to discuss subjects of common interest. People entitled to join the list are members of Full and Affiliate member institutions (ie not Corporate members). The lists should not be used to advertise or promote Corporate member or non-members events/services/products. These should be posted via the UCISA-announce list.
