Strategic planning is crucial for all organizations to set a clear direction, provide guidance to all stakeholders and offer a roadmap for the future. Over the course of 6 months in 2016, dozens of individuals from across the university participated in a collaborative effort to understand current technology needs and identify emerging priorities.
Through engagement with the university community, University Technology gained invaluable insight regarding existing perceptions, ongoing expectations and shared aspirations for how IT services can help advance the university’s mission.
Using this feedback and studying global trends, a plan emerged that set priorities, focused energy and resources and provided direction for a changing, more centralized environment. Welcome to [Re] Imagining IT, Case Western Reserve University’s Information Technology Strategic Plan.
To show progress on delivery of the Strategic Plan please view the 2019 Progress report, “The Story Continues.” The report highlights some macro-level accomplishments in support of the 2016 Strategic Plan and only hints at the multitude of activities behind those broad brushstrokes.
