20 The purpose of the survey was to help us better understand which leadership behaviors are most important to you. We will use the information you provided us as an input into defining leadership training in 2015. Leadership Survey
22 Driven by the need to evolve the IT organization as a whole into a more client-focused, service-based structure to enable the efficient and effective delivery of IT-related services. The redesign effort will make IT “easier to do business with” providing the University with a current, state-of- the-art support structure. IT Organization Design
24 We are evolving to a new Plan-Build-Run organizational. Although the target structure is not yet defined, we do know that: –Reporting structures may change –Job tasks and responsibilities may change –Processes may change –Technology may change What are the changes?
25 Federated with Plan-Build-Run Model IT Governance
26 Opportunities – on the path to being excellent service providers and technology leaders: Operational Client Focus Relationships Skills Development What opportunities will this create:
27 Since the last town hall: Rolled out the operational workbooks Conducted approximately 20 interviews with IST and Distributed IT Leaders Org Design Update
28 What’s next? Analysis of data from operational workbook interviews Complete skills workbook Develop recommended straw model for new structure Review recommended straw model with key stakeholders
30 What is the skills workbook? The skills workbook contains a list of tools, applications, and practices currently being used for staff to identify their specific skills and abilities. The skills workbook is NOT an assessment of performance.
31 Why are you completing them? Career interests Skill gaps Training plans Baseline
32 We’ve done skills inventories before. Why are we doing one again?
33 AESES IT staff, specifically the following groups: IST Staff, including those Team Leads IT-PMO Staff Distributed IT Staff in Medicine, Science and Asper Who is completing the workbook?
34 There are other groups (for example in Medicine and Science) that perform IT functions. There was a conscious decision to keep the scope to IST and the three pilot faculties to ensure it was manageable and to maintain our ability to work collaboratively. The intent is to bring such groups and other faculties into the scope at a later date. Why are only these groups participating?
36 We don’t know what we don’t know. We recognize that the current list of tools, applications and practices is not complete. We are looking to you to add to the list in any of those categories to ensure the list can be as complete as possible. Skills Workbook Contents
37 Although the number of items in the workbook is not complete, there are a lot of items because the workbook is going to a diverse audience with diverse skills. For ease of the completion, the field acknowledging your whether or not you have experience has been pre-populated with “N”. For only those areas in which you have experience and knowledge, please change the “Experience/Knowledge” column to “Y” and fill in the remaining fields. Expertise/Knowledge
38 Proficiency Levels Fundamental Awareness Novice (limited experience) Intermediate (practical application) Advanced Expert (recognized authority) Definitions included in the workbook.
39 It should take no more than 90 minutes to complete. If you find that it may take you longer, escalate to your leader for guidance. To track completion, we will be leveraging our Cherwell application. This means that you will receive a task (the time tracking aspect of the ticket will be ignored). Please close the task once your workbook is complete. Send an electronic copy to HR by Oct 7. Completing the workbook
40 Logistics You will receive the workbook by the end of the week. A Cherwell task will be set up and sent to you. Your leader will follow-up with you to answer any questions. You will receive an invite to attend a team meeting with the CIO (Distributed IT as requested).
