To effect systematic change in higher education requires a sophisticated blend of management, collegiality and simple hard work over a prolonged period of time. This paper will present the process and outcomes of a period of change within the Institute of Education.

The three phase model of change which has recently been published in the journal Management in Education (Vol 23 Issue 1) will be presented which suggests that change begins gradually and that it is important that strong leadership continues to support the change over a sustained period. The presentation will provide data from interviews with participants in the change process and also present the change model.
