All team members are asked to review and revise the metric definition templates owned by their office by Friday July 14, 2012.
Members working on the Proof of Concept (POC) for Online Report Card Tool are asked to read the full complete contracts for the design project and the POC Statement of Work. Work on this project will begin July 1, 2012.
Each of the Big Ideas—the Entrepreneurial Century; the Seamless Education Pipeline; a Healthier New York; an Energy-Smart New York; the Vibrant Community; and the World—each has its own set of what we call—and this brings us back to Jim Collins again—Big, Hairy, Audacious Goals.But how do we track these? How do we know we are moving the dial on these critical issues for New York?
That is precisely why we've created the SUNY Report Card.
In the coming year we will take the Report Card from a statement about accountability—the "You can hold us to it" promise—to a testament to progress and a tool for improvement. Let me explain this step in two parts:
To begin, we are investing SUNY resources, and looking to external support as well, in a discrete set of measurable actions. We will assess the impact of those actions by the data collected in our report card. And in the future you'll know how effective those actions are because we will tell you in the Report Card. Across our 6 Big Ideas this adds up to serious economic revitalization and enhances quality of life for all New Yorkers.
1) Produce Annual Report Card
2) Design and Create POC for Online Report Card Tool
3) Implement Full-scale Online Report Card Tool
Annual Report Card - includes collecting, analyzing and compiling data for report card metrics. Each team member represents an office or function that provides data to the Strategic Planning office for the report card. They are responsible for defining the metric, documenting the methodology and answering questions when necessary. When collecting the data they are responsible for providing accurate data by campus, analyzing the data trends over time, and explaining the results to the Strategic Planning office and answering questions when necessary. Also in the coming year we will work to set targets or goals for the report card metrics. This team will be asked to provide input to this process and analyze the review results in comparison to national context, individual campus results, etc.
Design and Create POC for Online Report Card Tool – SUNY is working with IBM to create a design and Proof of Concept of an online report card tool. Where appropriate members of this team will help with that project. More specifically, they will be providing drilldown data for a set of metrics.
Full-scale Implementation Online Report Card Tool – once the POC is complete, analyzed and approved, a full-scale online report card tool will be developed and maintained over time. Members of this group will be asked to help with that project and effort.
