This project is to provide resources that can be focussed on continuous improvements to ensure that enhancements and small changes can be made to existing systems and processes to have an impact on the student experience.   The work will be driven by the users of our systems, feedback from support and project implementations and technical enhancements.

The over-riding objective will be to deliver solutions to make an impact to the student experience or improve business processes.  This will be achieved by having a partnership with the relevant business area.

This will be delivered in multiple improvements, each Improvement will have its own requirements written by SSP and the business owners.

Where development resource is required, it will be provided by SSP and the wider IS Apps
