IT Governance and Visibility Initiatives, Year in Review 2016

Creating a New Governance Structure

  • The Governance Project Team is working with campus partners to develop a new IT governance structure to build more transparency into IT decisions and operations.
  • The goal is to make it lightweight, but ensure engagement of the appropriate individuals.

Governance Model Proposed

  • Ideas for governance were developed through a series of future state visioning workshops with OneIT leaders and Tippie College of Business faculty.  
  • The proposed governance model forms two new groups: 
    • A strategy group, with input from existing and new IT advisory groups, would develop and prioritize strategy. 
    • An operations group would coordinate projects and services and execute the strategy.

Developing Governance Processes & Criteria

  • With a framework in mind, the governance team is working closely with the IT Project Management Office Project Team to test and operationalize new governance practices. 
  • This includes outlining a process, developing tools to guide staff through it, and establishing criteria for which initiatives are subject to governance (factors include risk, scale, resource needs, and alignment with strategy).
