Advice to Management
Constantly changing management constantly doing new reviews and audits on top of the high audit burden is exhausting. Create better forms of communication than "cascading". The university still does not have proper email lists. Support your heads of school. They hold up the place and fix the gaps created by low admin resourcing. Judge others as you would have them judge you. Submit yourself to a 360 review.
Address red tape issues.
