Download our latest whitepaper: Why we need to consider university digital ecosystems as agile products
You work in the digital department of a university, overseeing its sprawling web estate. This digital ecosystem, which has grown in all directions over the years, now has hundreds of thousands of pages, multiple microsites and campaign sites that stopped serving a purpose months ago. Systems that were implemented to save time now waste it, as overworked staff try to hack them to fit new workflows.
Digital transformation is a wave of change that has dominated higher education for some time, but it continues to be relevant and challenges universities to reinvent their digital estate. Failure to understand this process at its heart leads to the same mistakes time and time again. Leadership teams need to forge a vision that delivers digital and educational transformation agendas instead of following a direction established by a product vendor or competitors.
As a member of the digital team or even as a digital manager, you might not have been involved in creating or buying the systems that you use. You might not even be responsible for entering or approving content or have a say in how and why systems are used. Unfortunately, this situation is very common in higher education institutions.
At Precedent, we understand the reasons why digital transformation projects often. In this whitepaper we have deployed our 25 years of experience as a strategic partner in the sector to lay out four fundamental agile lessons that we believe HEIs can learn from digital product teams.
