Creating a Center of Excellence

Creating a Center of Excellence: You may be closer than you think, Greg Pretty and Karen Smyth, MSVU

A new initiative does not always require new money or new resources. Often the resources are under your fingertips. It takes an awareness of the physical and human resources that exist across your organization and a willingness to align and re-appropriated these resources into a centralized hub that can achieve more and keep money within the walls of your university.

This approach has enabled the creation of MSVU’s Digital Media Zone as a new Centre of Excellence and a hub for multimedia development and support. Learn about the challenges and successes involved in such a process. Spotting fractured and dispersed resources. Find the holes where money is leaking out of your organization on services that can be handled centrally in house. Improve the quality of product and service while keeping more money within your walls.
