IT Discovery Process - Phase 2

IT Discovery Process - Phase 2

Two major work streams will be pursued through Phase 2 of the IT Centralization:

  • Organizational Discovery (people and stakeholders and how they interact)
  • Service Discovery (technology and meeting business needs)

Core Principles

Understand leadership perspective on organization and mission, and discuss options/approaches to addressing concerns

Invite the unit’s IT Liaison or senior IT leader as a core collaborator to ensure continuity of service and knowledge transfer

Involve the previous non-IT supervisor of IT employees.  

Demonstrate care for our people

  • where they may be in the change process  
  • who they are as individuals
  • how they can engage to be part of the future

Prioritize the information that needs to be collected and understood to ensure the time we are asking others to contribute is best spent
