Austin Community College District (ACC) has completed the initial Planning and Discovery phase of its Student Information System (SIS) transition to Workday Student.
The Workday team was onsite in October to launch the next phase, Architecture and Configuration, which is expected to run through summer 2024. During this visit, the ACC Project Team and Workday consultants conducted productive discussions and collaboration as Workday presented the most current version of the ACC Workday Student Information System.
During the visit, the teams met with ACC Subject Matter Experts and examined ACC’s business processes to ensure the final product meets the functional areas’ specific needs.
Additionally, the ACC Project and Workday teams identified the following four unique Organizational Change Management (OCM) workstreams:
- Communication Content Development
- Readiness & Acceptance
- Testing Preparation
These workstreams will collaborate with Student Affairs and Instructional stakeholders to ensure ACC faculty and staff are ready for the upcoming SIS transition.
ACC’s Instruction and Student Affairs project teams each release their own newsletters for their teams. The division is based on the nature of Workday Student, which involves aspects directed towards students and curriculum.
