The University of Birminghams People and Organisational Development (POD) is currently undergoing some significant change and is equipping itself to support the re-structure in terms of its responsibilities as Organisational Development provider.
Our aim in POD (People and Organisational Development) is to develop the capabilities and potential of every member of staff in the University. We support the University’s goal to recruit, develop and retain the best staff, who will keep the University at the forefront of all that it does.
With this in mind the POD are now seeking to enter into a Framework Agreement with providers who can meet the following requirements:
Organisational Development practitioners who can assist and support the POD in facilitating the work of the University of Birmingham as it re-engineers itself. Change Management both in terms of structure and culture are likely to be a key feature.
Management Development practitioners who can assist and support the POD in a range of programmes from Recruitment and Selection to Management Development programmes at varying levels of seniority. Within the spectrum of soft skills and personal and management development, there is unlikely to be many areas not covered.
Leadership Development practitioners who can assist and support the POD in a range of programmes to build the leadership capability of the University of Birmingham. Talent Management is a significant feature within this area and career and succession planning are areas that need to be fashioned into a detailed and coherent structure and process. Assessment and Development centres are likely to be a feature too, examining skills, knowledge and experience and leadership and management capabilities.
