Our Orange Data and Process Improvement teams are underway after the May 15 Kickoff event where people from around grounds came together to meet their team members, learn about the Orange Team process, and score the super cool sunglasses pictured above. We had over 50 people attend the kickoff, and when asked to rate their experience on a scale of 1-5, gave overall session value a 4 ,and the ability to bond and meet team members a 4.5. Teams are now in the process of meeting. These team meetings have had been full of some wonderful initial dialogue, congratulations Orange Teams on an excellent start. We appreciate everyone’s ongoing participation and will continue to work with teams to expand and refine their overall charge and goals. If you’re interested in joining a team to improve data and processes across the University, there’s still time to join, contact Jessica Rafter at firstname.lastname@example.org to get more information and connected to a team.
On another front, Hyperion Profitability Cost Management (HPCM), the reporting solution that will be used to report on the COE/UFM, has made significant progress on the build of the development environment.
The most exciting news is left for last; our team has grown by one! Mark Anderson is now our HPCM System Administrator. As part of the core project team he will be the leader of the functional design and application support for the launch of the HPCM-COE Application. Please join me in welcoming Mark.
