Like the world around us, higher education institutions are facing a transformative moment. Technology can be the foundation for creative transformation – that we know. But, as David Packard, Industrialist and co-founder of Hewlett Packard, once pointed out, “the driving force for transformation is not technology…not money… but the imagination of people.”
Institutional leaders and educators charged with setting the standard for the next generation of learners will need to embrace technology imaginatively to drive transformative change. But do we fully understand how the application of that technology and the extent to which it is embraced can drive improvement?
Through the creative application of technology, higher education institutions can achieve operational excellence. That means working more effi ciently and cost-effectively toward shared goals, leveraging technology and tools to accomplish tasks, and knowing that your institution is fl exible enough to accommodate new challenges and new ventures.
It also means that your key constituents – students, faculty, and staff – can more easily get what they need. For example, students gain mobility and quick access to real-time information; faculty realize improved productivity and can collaborate digitally; administrators have accurate data and secure information access, and CIOs spend their time on strategic projects rather than maintaining systems.
