The University of Northampton (UoN) wanted to strengthen its strategy across the elements of Education, Enterprise and Research. To support this, and to build reputation for the future, the UoN had been developing initial thinking on the concept of “flagships”.
Whitecap worked with UoN stakeholders to create a common definition and purpose for flagships, and then developed a data driven model to identify the university’s current flagships as well as those that could develop into flagships in the future.
“It was a pleasure to work with Whitecap, who were professional from first to last. We always felt their commitment to the project equalled our own and it was a really productive partnership.”
Wray Irwin, Director of Enterprise and Employability, University of Northampton
“In what was a challenging project for the University, Whitecap brought clear insight, clarity and structure which helped us to navigate our own position and achieve the best way forwards for the university community.”
Cathy Smith, Dean of Research, Impact and Innovation, University of Northampton
“The University of Northampton’s commitment to transforming lives and inspiring change is at the heart of everything that they do. The flagships project is a step to boost the commitment to the broad range of the stakeholders that the University works, and to enhance the reputation and brand of the University. We look forward to seeing the outcomes of this project in the future.”
Lal Tawney, Director, Whitecap Consulting
“The energy and insight Whitecap brought to the project really propelled it forwards; their evidence-informed approach was a real asset for change management as it enabled us to engage the whole community in well informed and productive debate.”
