How we developed our strategy

The development of our new strategy has been an evolving and iterative process, throughout which colleagues from across our global community have engaged and contributed ideas, suggestions, reflections and questions. With all of this having now been considered and developed further together, we are pleased to share with you our MDX 2031 Strategy.



Our engagement 

During our strategy development, there were over 4,000 community engagements with staff, students, governors and partners to date, including 898 comments from our cascade packs provided to colleagues to help them help us engage further with this process.

We’ve also held 26 strategy consultation sessions, including sessions with Faculties, Professional Services, international campuses and all staff sessions.

Padlet for comments and engagement

During phase two of the strategy development, we used Padlet to gather feedback as part of our engagement with colleagues on the 2031 strategy. If you have any questions about this space, or how it was used, please email [email protected]

Cascade packs

In addition to meetings where colleagues could ask questions and share feedback, we encouraged teams to have their own conversations about the new Strategy, and share their thoughts and ideas to help shape the Strategy.


Knowledge into action

Following the finalisation of our 2031 strategy, we will now bring our knowledge into action, thus continuing to achieve impact through research and engagement. We will continue leading with an action-oriented, agile approach to ensure inclusion and collaboration – to keep reflecting our values and care for our global MDX community going forward.
