Australian Business Deans Council

Professional Managers' Network

Business faculties and schools, like the universities in which they are located, are facing a turbulent period around funding uncertainty, increasing staff casualisation, disruptive technology and the continuous need for increased efficiency measures and changing business models, policies and regulations.  The work of professional services or resource management teams in our business schools has become ever more critical, complex and challenging. The purpose of the Professional Managers' Network is to support members by:

  • Promoting professional skills development for professional resource managers;
  • Providing a knowledge sharing platform regarding current issues and good practice in professional resource management; 
  • Offering an engaged collegial network of support; and
  • Facilitating a national, collaborative approach to systemic change that pursues excellence in professional resource management in business schools across Australia.

Network membership comprises of those in the most senior general, operational or professional resource management role in ABDC business faculties, colleges or schools.
