Training and Consultancy

What is it?

Outside of our standard offerings, we can build flexible engagements with our deep subject matter expertise and knowledge of the sector. Examples include Data maturity assessments using the CMMI Model, organisational design based on the capability model, data improvement initiatives based on the HEDIIP (now HESA) Data Capability Toolkit and training.

For data governance training, we partner with the fantastic Nicola Askham: https://www.nicolaaskham.com. Nicola and I have developed an HE version of her class leading training for Data Owners and Data Stewards.

How can I use it?

These are very much bespoke engagements based on individual institution requirements. They may form part of a wider engagement, or be a one off for a specific initiative. We get involved in all sorts of interesting projects, but we’ll never say yes to something we can’t bring some tangible value to.

Who else is using it?

Nicola and I have delivered data governance training to eight universities since 2018. We have seen an increase in demand for this training as data governance frameworks have become a priority for our customers.

The Leigh Partnership has worked with three organisations since 2018 on bespoke consultancy projects outside of our standard offerings.

What does it cost?

The cost is very dependant on the scope and size of the engagement. However, we recommend a fixed cost based on a very clear set of agreed outcomes.

Can this service be delivered remotely?

Since the advent of the Corona virus and the associated social distancing rules, we have worked hard to move the majority of our services to remote collaboration. This has involved writing new material, sourcing collaboration applications, rehearsing remote delivery techniques and, of course, speaking to our customers about their needs, We have been overwhelmed with the support from both our existing and potential new customers in endorsing this approach. We already have two data strategy projects being delivered remotely with other services soon to follow.

We do believe we can adapt to the current restrictions in a positive and engaging way. Please get in touch for more detail, and to receive our short ’successful collaboration’ paper we’ve just finished!

Where can I find out more?

Please get in touch with your requirements, and we’ll see how we can help.

If you would like to discuss this further, we would love to hear from you.
