New OnePurdue town hall meetings to begin April 10

OnePurdue has scheduled its second series of town hall-style meetings in April: two on the West Lafayette campus and one each at the Calumet, Fort Wayne and North Central campuses.

The first town hall meetings, presented by last fall by OnePurdue Executive Director Gary Newsom, provided a general introduction to the project with basic information for faculty and staff who had little involvement with or didn’t know much about OnePurdue. Since then, the “blueprint” documents, which define what OnePurdue will look like once fully implemented, have been completed for the financial and human-resource components, and more information is now available.

John Beelke, director of Human Resource Services, and Comptroller John Shipley will lead these meetings. (Beelke and Shipley are members of the OnePurdue ERP Implementation Steering Committee and the “process owners” for the OnePurdue financial and HR components, respectively.) They will discuss the key business benefits of OnePurdue, what will be changing in their areas and what lies ahead as the project moves toward its first (financial and HR) software releases in October.

“All of these events will be good opportunities for people in the Purdue community to learn more details about OnePurdue,” said Adedayo Adeniyi, the project’s director of change management and training. “I hope as many people as possible will be able to attend.”

The blueprint for OnePurdue’s student module is now in its latter stages of finalization, and details about that component of the project will be discussed at future town hall meetings.

The schedule for the spring town hall meetings is as follows:

The Purdue University North Central (PNC) OnePurdue Steering Committee hosted two informational sessions in March for PNC administrative and academic managers. (Another meeting is planned for April 7, 11 a.m. — 1 p.m., in the University Village Clubhouse.)

Titled “Meeting the Challenge of Change,” these sessions provided managers and supervisors from various campus departments with information to increase awareness of OnePurdue’s progress, in addition to some basic strategies for understanding and managing the changes that OnePurdue will bring.

“We thought it was important to provide the time and space necessary to answer questions and gather feedback related to employees’ perceptions of OnePurdue and its impact on our campus,” said Cynthia Roberts, assistant professor of organizational leadership and supervision at North Central, who led the sessions. She also serves as PNC’s representative on the OnePurdue Change Management and Training Advisory Committee.

“We had good turnouts at these events, and they will also be helpful as we prepare for the April 26 OnePurdue town hall meeting at our campus,” Roberts said, noting that PNC Chancellor James B. Dworkin also attended and participated in each session.

“We really appreciated Dr. Dworkin’s participation,” Roberts said. “He not only sent personal invitations to each administrative and academic manager, but also reiterated his support for our committee’s work and the OnePurdue project, in general.”

PNC plans to conduct additional informational sessions during this summer to provide more information about OnePurdue and address concerns as they arise.
