What Is on the Horizon?

Currently, the Core Team is actively working with our implementation partner on requirements gathering, design, mapping out the integrations, and finalizing the detailed workplans. As we work through these stages, several of you will be invited to join discussions to assist with mapping out certain processes and also may be called upon to assist during the various testing stages.

In addition, we have established a Stakeholder Committee comprised of representatives from areas where the project will have a more direct impact on their operations in this particular phase. We had our official kickoff with this group on October 6th and will begin meeting monthly. Their charge will be to provide general guidance and feedback along the way. These individuals will be expected to participate in discussions around business processes, provide updates to their respective areas, and to help facilitate any communication efforts.

If your particular unit is not represented, and you feel it should be, please contact us at workday@simmons.edu. We also encourage you to check out our website and to read future newsletters. In addition, we plan to have brown bag sessions and demo tables at various campus locations where you can drop in and check out what Workday is all about. We'll share times and locations for these events soon. Stay tuned!
