This paper discussed the factors influencing change, the organisational re-alignment process, the steps taken to engage senior management and stakeholders from the start in collaboratively developing this strategy within the policy framework of the University, with reference to the culture, people, process and technology at the University of Melbourne that were essential elements in the development and adoption of this strategy.
