rpk GROUP, a leading consulting and advisory firm to higher education, and Nuventive, a provider of cloud-based planning and information delivery solutions, announce the launch of their Higher EDGE Collaborative.
The Collaborative seeks to bring transformation-minded leaders from across the country together to discover and deploy strategies for achieving data-informed culture and sustainable innovation, according to the companies. The project intends to surface new proof points for the creation of data-informed culture, institutional capacity to act on data at scale, and the transformation of traditional business models.
“Stakeholders at every level of the modern institution recognize the potential of contextualized, data-informed planning. But in most cases identifying and accessing the right information at the right time still stands in the way,” said David Raney, Nuventive CEO.
“Continued advances in technology mean we have the opportunity to tap and leverage information more effectively than ever before. It’s time to eliminate long-standing hurdles and make point-of-impact decision-making a reality. We’re eager to work with rpk GROUP and Collaborative members in order to propel meaningful advances on this front.”
The Higher EDGE Collaborative will begin building a community of practice focused on change management, business models, and innovation strategies that connect data to sustainable innovation, the companies say in a joint release.
What participants get out of it
Participating leaders will be invited to help shape the new community of practice, while also receiving training, consultation and networked engagement from the Collaborative’s partners during its initial launch period (August – December 2019).
Findings of the Collaborative will be jointly published in 2020 and shared nationally via blogs, social media, and conference presentations.
Institutional leaders and business officers who are interested in joining the Higher EDGE Collaborative can contact them by August 1st at HigherEdge@Nuventive.com.
