Association for Project Management
The University is a corporate member of the APM. This means you can register for free with the organisation, noting that you are an employee of the University, and this will give you free or discounted access to resources, events, training courses and qualifications.
Projects go on across the University. Examples of other current projects can be found at:
Information services and technology is a very dynamic area, and CiCS always has a number of new developments being researched and implemented. We organise these with a Portfolio of Projects, which is what this site is about. Every project includes people from outside CiCS - indeed they often lead the project boards. The industry-standard PRINCE2 methodology is used as the basis for running all projects in CiCS.
CICS also provide useful resources for project managers which can be found here -
Estates & Facilities Management
Estates Development in EFM are responsible for all new buildings, and all upgrades to existing buildings on campus. Our team, managed by Andrew Fallon, is responsible for the many different building and upgrade projects that happen around the University of Sheffield. This includes everything from putting in a new carpet to constructing an entire new building.
Process Improvement Unit
We’re here to help the University run the most efficient processes it can, so that more of its resources can be spent on learning, teaching and research. Created as a response to external pressure for greater efficiencies in Universities and internal understanding that increasing student numbers, greater regulation and financial pressures mean that we must operate with less waste, our remit is to facilitate process improvement events, to run training in improvement tools and techniques, and to develop a culture of process awareness in the University.
Projects and Development, Academic and Learning Services
Based on priorities identified in the Learning and Teaching Strategy and at Faculty level, as well as emerging priorities from the external Higher Education environment, funding is allocated to develop a number of strategic learning and teaching projects. These have impact at institutional, faculty and departmental levels and are undertaken with the aim of embedding processes and practice across the University.
