A OneIT@Iowa Steering Committee has been formed to make strategic decisions and coordinate the OneIT initiatives. The team includes IT leaders from distributed units and ITS.
To succeed in implementing the OneIT@Iowa initiatives, we must coordinate the efforts of individual projects, track progress, collect metrics, and complete other project-management tasks. For large-scale projects, the best practice is to create a Program Office to assure consistent support across all sub-projects. We have established a Program Office supported by three IT leaders with considerable project-management experience. They will also serve on the Steering Committee.
The group's first task will be to establish leaders for each project area. Project team leaders can then pull together the right people for their teams.
