The University of Bath Public Engagement Unit approached me as they wanted to produce a guide to culture change. The resource would be interactive; it would draw on their experiences of embedding public engagement in research and would be for staff with responsibility for public engagement.
We worked through an iterative process, identifying the key topics the guide would need to cover, drafting content, developing and refining exercises. The subsequent Field Guide drew heavily on the teams experiences of managing change in complex systems as well as my own. We developed introductory chapters and tools about culture change, the role of the university and self-reflection, before moving on to present the key lessons the team have Bath have learned.The guide is organised into four different parts with 25 exercises to help shape approaches to culture change:
