May 2021

Achievements this period

  • A paper detailing how this year's project will be delivered was written for IT Committee and Knowledge Strategy Committee. The paper was presented at both committees  and well received.
  • IT Readiness strand is up and running with bi-weekly meetings.
  • Welcome Week strand is up and running with bu-weekly meetings.
  • Presentation given to ISG SLT.

Issues

  • At the outset of the project, the 14 projects/activities identified by CIO for start of term, were to be programme managed by a programme manager from Strategic Change Team. It emerged during this reporting period that this is no longer the case. The programme management for these project is a significant amount of work, as information about many of these project/initiatives is unknown. This programme management will be picked up by the senior PM on this project.
  • No progress has been made regarding discussions with ITI about WiFi connectivity for students arriving in Edinburgh for the first time. The project sponsor will take this forward. 

Next Steps

  • Continue with IT Readiness monitoring and reporting.
  • Continue with Welcome Week planning.
