Business Process Reimagine Workshops

Develop one set of standardized processes by which the UT System operates and guides the overall implementation. These efforts will focus on improving service delivery to students, staff, faculty, alumni and other constituents by:

  • Identifying opportunities to increase efficiency and reduce redundancy.
  • Informing the new DASH solution implementation with best practices.
  • Ensuring the new DASH system will be used effectively.
  • Positioning the UT System to address the demands of and aid in removing administrative barriers.
