Are your institution’s technology investments pushing your school ahead – or holding you back?
Take this quick quiz to find out!
Colleges and universities rely on technology more than ever, yet first-time presidents feel less prepared to manage their institution’s IT function than any other area of their responsibility.
Most college presidents, COOs and CFOs don’t know the right questions to ask to find out if their technology investments are pushing their schools ahead of the pack — or holding them back.
This Technology Assessment is built with your role in mind: no IT knowledge, auditing or interaction necessary.
Just score each of the questions below on a 1-5 scale based on your own perspective at this moment and add up the score at the end.
Congratulations! You’re in the OPTIMIZE zone of the technology maturity model, where your technology investments are optimized and strategically aligned with your institutional needs.
Your IT team responds to issues promptly and effectively, freeing up most of their time to work closely with your stakeholders to determine their needs and develop solutions and support to address them.
Your technology investments are paying off and delivering strong returns and pushing your institution ahead.
A good start! You’re in the STABILIZE zone of the technology maturity model, where your technology platforms are stabilized and balanced between reacting to technology-related issues and addressing the future needs of your stakeholders.
Your IT team helps you analyze trends and anticipate where technology might be able to support the needs of the institution.
Your technology investments have not been optimized leaving plenty of opportunities to grow, but they aren’t holding you back or driving you ahead of your competitors.
WARNING! Your institution is in the TRIAGE zone in the technology maturity model, allocating most/all of its available IT resources to putting out fires, patching broken platforms and trying to maintain the existing technology investments you’ve already made.
As a result, projects are delivered late, over budget, or not at all. Your stakeholders are unsatisfied, and you’re getting involved far more than you should.
In this state, it will be very difficult for your hard-working team to provide the IT support your institution needs to succeed and remain viable given the current higher education environment. You need outside help, now.
