Evaluating New Systems: A Small Institution Approach

Track: Leading Change

Session Number: 10622
Date: Wed, Mar 6th, 2024
Time: 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Description:

During this session, you will hear from Trey Arrington, the CIO at Wofford College. Trey led a 10 month process to evaluate HCM, Finance, Payroll and Student Information Systems that would begin Wofford's cloud transformation journey. Being a school of less than 2,000 students, Wofford had to navigate this process with limited resources and the many challenges that similar institutions know all too well. At the end of their evaluation process, the selection of the path forward was unanimous between the evaluation team, President's Cabinet and Board of Trustees. Trey would like to share lessons learned on what worked well, and what could have been done differently in the evaluation process. He will also discuss the strategies needed for campus communication, and getting buy-in from the Cabinet and Board of Trustees.
