Enterprise System Upgrade Program Kickoff slated for Oct. 16

Between now and December 2014, the University of Minnesota system is upgrading its essential human resources (HR), student and financial systems and re-examining related business processes to improve operational efficiency and user experience. The Enterprise System Upgrade Program (ESUP) Kickoff is scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 16, from 1 to 4 p.m. in Coffman Memorial Union’s Great Hall.

ESUP team members and targeted leaders and stakeholders who should attend this event in person, if possible, will receive an electronic invitation with an RSVP included. All project team members are expected to attend; team members from the coordinate campuses will be able to participate in the event and ask questions remotely from the following designated ITV locations on their campuses:
  • UMM:  HFA #7
  • UMC:  116 Kiehle
  • UMD:  173 Kirby Plaza
  • UMR:  Rm #397
The agenda is as follows:
  • Registration (12:30 to 1 p.m.) and light refreshments; program begins promptly at 1.
  • Session 1 (1 to 2 p.m.) including a welcome from University of Minnesota President Eric Kaler, as well as an overview of the motivation, scope and goals for this important initiative for all ESUP team members, University leadership and key stakeholders. Invitees who are not assigned to a specific project team or role can leave following Session 1 if they choose.
  • Break (2 to 2:15 p.m.), including light refreshments.
  • Session 2 (2:15 to 4 p.m.) including a deeper dive into project methodology, norms and expectations, etc., specifically for ESUP team members. 

Both sessions will also be streamed live at livestream.com/umntv and recorded for viewing after the event, so other interested faculty, staff, and students can watch the kickoff online. We will also have additional opportunities for system users and the broader University community to learn more about and engage in this important effort.
