Organisation Optimisation

To achieve these bold ambitions, and ensure we put our student journey first in everything we do, we re-evaluated our entire organisation. We transformed the structure of our educational staff, and initiated a curriculum innovation programme. We are currently in the process of reformulating our purpose, values and culture, to better express what we truly stand for.

Principles New Way of Working (NWoW) @Hotelschool The Hague

Our new way of working is based on the following principles:

  • Guiding principle in all we do is the continuous improvement of the quality and implementation of our education, research and support;
  • Professionals and teams in both education and support take the lead. They are given the space and responsibility to organize and execute their work, and to work together with other teams on continuous improvement;
  • Our professionals and teams are supported by coaching, facilitating, and result-oriented leadership;
  • We formulate frameworks within which our professionals and teams operate, where possible based on an interactive process;
  • The needs of our students and teams are leading when establishing the support processes. Where possible, these processes will be as ‘lean’ as possible as long as the contribution to improve the quality of our education and research is and stays the starting point;
  • Our professionals and teams are accountable for the choices they make and the results they deliver. Together, we formulate goals, monitor progress, reflect on outcomes and jointly define improvement actions based on this.
