BPA Workshops and SME Homework

We’ve entered the second week of BPA Workshops. Only 8 more weeks to go!

A special thanks to the system-wide SMEs who are attending the sessions already or plan to in the near future. Also, a big thanks to SMEs for helping us with the ‘homework’ that is coming out of the workshops. As the ctcLink/Ciber team leads each pillar (Human Capital Management, Campus Solutions, Finance) through the business process diagrams, some questions have been coming up regarding how colleges perform certain business processes now and which department on campus is responsible for some of the tasks. This information will drive the global design of the new system, so input from every college across the system is important.

Since most colleges have many SMEs participating in the workshops, the practice some colleges have put in place of appointing one SME per pillar to submit the survey (homework questions) is a good one. And, of course, rotating that responsibility each week isn’t a bad idea either!

The ctcLink project team thanks you for your continued participation and input!

Here are some Campus Solutions SMEs who allowed me to snap their photo during a break last week. If you have a group of SMEs attending the sessions together via WebEx, send me a photo to share on the blog. Of course, a self-portrait of a single SME enjoying the meeting from his/her desk is acceptable too! (Send to Janelle at jrunyon@sbctc.edu).
