McMaster celebrates launch of new strategic direction for IT
Following almost a year of broad consultation with cross-campus constituencies and stewardship from the McMaster IT Strategic Plan Steering Committee, the McMaster community gathered January 23, 2019 to celebrate the launch of a new strategic direction for IT. Following opening remarks from President Patrick Deane, Roger Couldrey, Vice-President (Administration), reflected on the genesis of the McMaster IT Strategic Plan by highlighting the award-winning 2016 IT Services Review and the broad impacts for IT on campus and beyond.
McMaster Assistant Vice-President and Chief Technology Officer, Gayleen Gray then unveiled key aspects of the plan, highlighting the three strategic pillars (Connected, Seamless, Transformative) and encouraged the audience to visit the new IT Strategy section on the cto.mcmaster.ca website to download the full plan and access supplementary information.
Audience members were able to see Digital Moments come to life through multimedia storytelling and were also able to interact during the presentation using their own handheld devices.
“The new McMaster IT Strategic Plan for 2019 – 2021 is the result of many conversations, future dreaming and visioning, and a very supportive senior administration. I want to thank each and every person who has contributed to and supported this process. I’m so looking forward to working in collaboration with my many talented and dedicated colleagues here at McMaster as we implement our IT Strategic Plan,” said Gayleen Gray
Future engagement and communication strategies for the plan are currently being developed to ensure implementation is flexible and responsive.
