Future-Proof: The Flexible IT Organization
To future-proof our organizations, we must evaluate our present and envision our future. Current and future technology leaders will then be able to design the flexibility needed now for success tomorrow.
Where Are You Now?
Being able to thrive in the future requires evaluating your present. A central part of institutional planning is understanding how current resources and investments, both financial and human, are being spent.
What Will the Future Look Like?
The future won’t look like the past. Success in higher education depends on implementing diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) practices, and holding ourselves accountable, so that our environment is welcoming to all students and staff, from all backgrounds.
Explore the EDUCAUSE Guide to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.
Who Will Lead in the Future?
Current technology leaders must create pathways and cultivate opportunities to attract and retain the next generation of professionals. A key part of doing this work involves listening to the ideas of those who are new to the field.
