User Empowered Process for Information Technology Planning and Implementation.
Grimes, Joe; Zingg, Paul; Hanley, Jerry
The teaching/learning process must drive technology planning. Over the past several years an effort at California Polytechnic State University has been underway to ensure that the culture of participatory and strategic governance promotes this principle, with both the users and the providers being of the same understanding and participating as part of the same team. The key to a successful effort is informed, engaged, and supportive institutional leadership. This paper explains how this process has evolved, describing a process of continually advancing a user-defined strategic goals document with general categories of Access, Integration, Skills, Simplicity, and Process.
