The change network for the Transform Purdue project plays an integral role in the successful implementation of the projects. The addition of the academic go-tos to the change network structure, which was shared in the September 6 Transform Purdue blog, enhances the change network and provides a bridge between project teams and Purdue staff. As support for the transformation continues to be shown from upper-level leadership, including President Mitch Daniels, the project is on pace to make the impactful and necessary changes to the way Purdue does business.

With those changes comes the need to be well-informed and aware of what is happening around us. To ensure everyone is engaged and informed as well as possible, more options to familiarize with the projects become available. While testing and training continue respectively on all three ongoing projects, deep dive sessions, offered to those identified as go-tos, are taking place now through mid-October as well. Deep dive sessions provide opportunities for attendees to learn more about the redesigned processes and allow for questions to be asked and answered on top of and outside of the formal testing and training sessions. That information then becomes available to fellow employees via the go-to roles.

Deep dive sessions are in place to cover the following topics:

  • Foundation Elements, Position Management, Employee Self Service
  • Staff/Student Recruitment
  • Faculty Recruitment
  • Job Family Structure
  • Time and Payroll

Communications to keep the Purdue community informed of progress will continue to be shared via numerous outlets, including the Transform Purdue website, Transform Purdue blog, Transform@Purdue newsletter, Purdue Today, Key Messages to leadership and more.
