Goal of ITSD Provide outstanding customer service and IT tools to the user community to enable the Institute to meet its Mission, Science and Business goals.
Feedback on ITSD We obtained input from: Our Customers: Meeting with Division Management, Director ‘s Office and Institute staff on their perception of ITSD ITSD Staff: Focus Group report from Dr. Fred Mael ITSD Management: Branch Managers analyzed work flow and issues within the Division What did we find from this feedback? ITSD does a tremendous amount of good work but there are areas where we need to improve.
Focus Areas Areas we are focusing on to make ITSD more effective: Increase the role of the customer in how decisions are made and priorities are set Clear understanding of the roles and primary points of contact Streamline and simplify processes
ITSD Approach Going Forward Build and maintain stronger relationships with our customers Receptive to new ideas and technologies Recognize the value of failing forward Build capable and adaptable teams
Structural Improvements Streamline and clarify workflow through organizational changes Align the focus of the teams with customer needs Create Technical Lead & Chief Technical Lead roles Technical Leads are identified points of contact and will lead and coordinate work across the work units. Part of their role is to partner with the OED Chief Engineers in the relevant domains.
