The IT Shared Services (ITSS) Strategic Plan uses a standard strategic planning methodology. The plan is designed around a standard strategy map, balanced scorecard, strategic objectives, and tactical initiatives that flow downward. Strategy drives the scorecard and the objectives, and strategic objectives drive the tactical initiatives. Tactical initiatives are achievable pieces of work that have a definite beginning and end and can be measured.
The ITSS Strategic Plan is based upon the overarching directives provided by the UNT System Board of Regents, the chancellor, and the three university presidents. The plan's goals are simple:
The primary mission of the UNT System is to educate students. The ITSS plan supports activities that improve business operations, systems that support the UNT System, and activities that are internal to the ITSS organization.
The ITSS FY2019-FY2022 Strategic Plan is currently under review.
