Holland, David G.
This paper outlines a process implemented at Mott Community College (Michigan) for building technology-based systems that would encourage collaboration among the staff. The first goal was communication, which included using the following technology to allow people to communicate and to make information available: e-mail, calendaring, Intranet/Internet, campus directory, open positions database, human resources information system, World Wide Web-based course schedule, purchasing procedures online documentation, press release database, and reports system. The second major task was to build systems of cooperation; the goal was to develop automation systems that would allow work to flow more efficiently between people. Included were the current events system, help desk service request database, facilities service request system, book request database, and room scheduling system. The third step was to build collaborative systems which would allow teams of people to work together to accomplish common goals. These systems included online purchase requisition and approval, grievance tracking/solution system, and faculty information management system. (AEF)
