An Intranet site unveiled this week will enable ITD employees
to engage in the departments technology transformation
process, chronicle its progress and interact with project
A link to the new site can be found under projects
on the navigation bar located to the left of the Intranet's
main window. From the drop-down menu, select IT Transition.
Or for direct access to the project click and save the Intranet
ITD employees can review the transition teams mission/charter
and membership, the scheduled work plan and questions their
colleagues have submitted regarding the transformation process.
The site also enables employees to send e-mail questions to
project managers Sue Simmons or Larry Falkner. Questions can
be asked anonymously; answers will be posted under the FAQ
We invite employees to visit the site to learn more
about our transformation progress, explained Sue Simmons.
This is an open, fully transparent process that will
reshape how we are structured and how we operate. Employee
input is a critical part of that process.
All questions and suggestions will be acknowledged,
adds Falkner. The Intranet site will foster the kind
of dialogue necessary to make this process successful and
lead us into a new era of service to Idaho.
Consultant David Fletcher, who conducted an Enterprise Data
Model study and the Information Strategy Plan several years
ago, is leading the transition team. The 10-member team, which
represents a cross-section of ITD, is preparing an implementation
plan that should be completed by July 1. The transformation
could take several years to complete.
