Butler IT Evolution
Russell Martin & Associates and Butler University’s CIO and IT Leadership team created and examined a snapshot of the Butler IT Organization and staff using TTI-SI tools, outside experts, customer surveys and the latest academic and industry findings. A baseline was established, current and future trends were identified and an assessment of what might be needed going forward was created. The leadership compared the organization’s current state to their future state findings and shared all this information with the IT staff through ‘town hall’ meetings to create an open forum for proposed ideas and discussions. Over the course of two years, the organization followed and has continued to evolve their “IT Evolution” roadmap. They’ve met the needs of their customers, helped place their own employees in the right positions and have continued to stay ahead of the IT curve as a thriving, successful organization at Butler University.
RMA developed and facilitated a multi-session team development series that focused on collaborative teams and leading difficult project teams. The first phase focused on growing resiliency by focusing on team strengths; aligning the vision of the team; and creating a prioritization strategy to help team members make appropriate choices. The second phase aimed at managing multiple agendas of cross-organizational project work; competition within a collaborative structure; and identifying cost and benefits of collaboration. Together with RMA, the Liberty Mutual teams created a plan to manage the communication needs of cross-organizational projects and move toward the desired state of project collaboration.
What People are Saying...
We met during your Systems Thinking class held in Indianapolis. By far that class has made the most significant impact on the direction of my professional goals. I have also carried this philosophy into my everyday life with much success. Knowledge Management is a very powerful tool, unfortunately many people in the corporate world do not understand it's necessity.
