Western Kentucky University Alignment Plan Summary
Because Ellucian/Banner is our Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) technology partner, Western Kentucky University is partnering with Ellucian to conduct an assessment of our overall use of Banner and other technology solutions. The purpose of this project is to ensure we are conducting our business in the most efficient manner.
In order to understand more about our current business processes and how we can use technology to aid in these processes. I am asking that each of you complete the confidential survey found at the following link: Western Kentucky University Alignment Plan Survey
In most cases, this survey will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete. We appreciate candidness in your responses to this survey so that we can get the maximum benefit from the compiled results. Please complete the survey as soon as possible, but no later than Friday, September 20th.
Results from this survey will be used to determine the focus areas of departmental discussions when representatives from Ellucian come to campus. The leadership team will work with Ellucian to rank and prioritize any recommended initiatives that may come from this analysis based on productivity gains and strategic benefits. This will enable us to more effectively deploy current resources, deal with change, achieve desired outcomes, and overall build a more efficient and effective organization. You will receive notification if you have been chosen to participate in these discussions and logistics for the in-person conversation.
Your participation in the online survey is critical to the success of this engagement. We thank you in advance for your time and thoughtful participation as we work together to make Western Kentucky University a great place to work and learn.
