The newly charged IT Strategic Planning Process Steering Team is inviting all faculty and staff to participate in two workshops later this month to develop a campus IT strategic plan:
- Thursday, March 21
1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Walnut Room, Talley Student Center
- Wednesday, March 27
2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
College of Textiles Convocation Center (Room 2309)
In these workshops, the team hopes to engage you and other NC State IT stakeholders to help ensure broad-based support for a new university-wide IT strategic plan. This plan will provide both a vision and a framework for how the university’s comprehensive IT environment can best support and accelerate achievement of its mission, vision and goals, as conveyed in The Pathway to the Future: NC State’s 2011-2020 Strategic Plan.
You will be invited to share your beliefs about the current strengths and weaknesses of the IT services provided and supported by the university. In addition, you will be able to explore ideas for focusing IT resources in the coming years.
Your input from these workshops and the work of several campus IT groups — the IT Strategic Advisory Committee (ITSAC), the Campus IT Directors (CITD), and respective IT governance subcommittees — will be the driving forces to develop a university IT strategic plan.
By early fall, the process steering team hopes to share an initial draft of the IT strategic plan with all stakeholders. By late October, the team expects to have the plan completed.
To find out more about the NC State IT Strategic Planning Process and to share your ideas, please come to one of the scheduled workshops. You may also visit the University IT Strategic Planning website.
