HEMA draws on the extensive advisory and management skills of a closely knit work group of experienced professionals and academic practitioners. Several of these individuals are associated with centres of higher education excellence in Africa, including the Centre for Higher Education Transformation (CHET).
The skills and experience within the HEMA group include providing institutional strategic guidance, conducting international comparative and Africa-wide higher education studies, managing high-profile regional programmes and implementing higher education transformation. HEMA is adept at examining higher education performance, including analysing factors impacting on Universities and economic development in Africa, and developing practical implementation plans to address these. These specialist skills are complemented by the extensive FutureLead experience with a comprehensive range of organisational interventions for most leading South African universities, that allows for a comprehensive HEMA service offering.
