In such scenario, a premier institution, with the ambition to be globally benchmarked music institution, it is crucial to build reputation of a formal education Institution.

As mentioned above, the consulting assignment was aimed at institutional assessment and organisational restructuring for building the reputation and credibility of formal education institution and improve operational efficiency by implementing best suited processes and practices of academic institution clubbed with corporate structure.
EduShine conducted detailed institutional assessment exercise by meeting with leadership and top management, followed by survey of all the 3 stakeholders – employees, students and industry.
Based on the inputs of the meetings and survey, EduShine segregated institutional departments in 2 segments – academic departments & professional departments.
We suggested separate structure for both the departments. Both the segments had different designations, roles and reporting structures. Further, the mechanism for smooth coordination between both the structures was created by implementation of matrix structure reporting. Eventually, leadership of both the functions – academic & professional, reported to the institution leadership and the board.
The effort vastly improved institution’s operational efficiency and reputation. The employees have better clarity of their roles and they are more empowered; current and prospective students’ image of the institution as a formal education institution improved drastically.
Specifically below mentioned functions gained due to the restructuring exercise:
- Student feedback & satisfaction
- Employee clarity of their role
- Industry perception
