OPERATIONS & MAINTENANCE (O&M) CHANGE MANAGEMENT

Change within Operations & Maintenance (O&M) is one of the hardest things to execute, especially within schools. However, continuous upgrades to processes and controls can bring about enormous savings in energy costs, deliver important safety improvements, and contribute to your school’s green initiatives.

 

At THG Advisory, we help you identify and resolve O&M issues relevant to your organization, conducting operational audits of business support functions including: transportation, facilities maintenance, procurement, parent relations (customer service), safety protocols and health services.

 

We partner with you to implement efficiency programs for success, while keeping staff focused on what’s important. 

Change is the end result of learning

ACCREDITATION PREPAREDNESS

Develop and implement recognizable, quality standards

School accreditation is vital for showcasing the quality of your organization to families and governments. New schools have a finite amount of time to apply and prepare for accreditation audits. We at THG Advisory know that planning for inspections, alongside generating enrolments, and getting the school up and running, is a daunting but necessary task. Established schools have a huge body of students and parents to manage, and also have to prepare for regular accreditation renewals.

 

We work with your school to understand the core audit requirements of the accreditation scope, and assess where you are in the process, allowing us to bridge the gap and focus on what needs to be completed and what needs to be adjusted.

We have years of experience in the IB, CIS and KHDA process, and can also help with NEASC and ISS requirements. We are here to provide guidance and support in achieving the required standards, whether it’s for the first time or ‘here we go again’ time.
