On July 3, 2018, the Information Technology Services (ITS) division, under the leadership of Bo Wandschneider, chief information officer (CIO) launched the ITS strategic planning process.
The development of the University of Toronto’s ITS strategic plan will focus and guide our efforts to support the university’s academic mission through information technology services. It will inform the vision, goals and objectives both within ITS and across the university for the next three years. Additionally, the strategic plan will provide a clear picture of and guide our IT investments in a rapidly evolving environment.
The plan is being created with the input of all staff within ITS and key stakeholders from the broader University of Toronto community. The process will be supported by Meghan Kirwin, a facilitator with The Kirwin Group.
The ITS strategic plan will include:
A shared vision informed by our five core values.
Our broad goals to address emergent needs.
Priorities and achievement targets for the next three years.
Stay tuned over the coming weeks and months for information on next steps and updates on the strategic planning process. Your participation and input is valued and welcome. Reach out to us with questions and feedback.
Input of staff, partners and stakeholders is critical to the development of the plan. Meetings and focus groups are planned throughout the summer and fall to gather their valuable feedback. More details on this and additional activities to follow.
The first session for the University of Toronto ITS strategic plan steering committee will be held on July 18th and will focus on the high-level vision.
