Change Network

There is an interconnected change network in place at the university that will be a mainstay throughout the transition. The network, comprised of department or business unit resources linked to each project team, is charged with ensuring everyone has what they need to move forward in a successful manner. On the technology side, continuous assistance will be available throughout the transition and after.

The change network kicked off in April 2017 to establish a network of respected and influential employees who can serve as a trusted bridge between the project team and the local employees and managers. Members of the network – known as change agents – are engaged and informed individuals who will help lead change initiatives in their specific deployment areas. They have three main responsibilities:

  1. To be a representative of and an advocate for their local organization
  2. To share information from the project team with their local organization
  3. To be a feedback loop to the project team

Change agent team leads have been identified on the West Lafayette campus; identification of regional campus representation is underway, and the below listing will be updated accordingly.
