Calendar

October 14, 2019: Deployment Group 4 Kickoff

Monday, October 14, 2-3 p.m.: Highline’s ctcLink project team and subject matter experts will participate in a one-hour WebEx on October 14 with the other six Deployment Group 4 colleges and the State Board. This session will officially kick off the Implementation phase of the ctcLink project. Highline will engage with the State Board during the Implementation phase for a host of activities, including participating in in-depth Business Process Fit Gap sessions, completing local configuration guides, validating data and testing processes. The entire Implementation phase is expected to span the next 15 months. After successfully completing Implementation, we will be ready to make the switch to the ctcLink system during the Go-Live phase, planned for February 2021.

October 4, 2019: State Board Pre-Kickoff Road Show

Friday, October 4, 9 a.m.: A team from the State Board for Community and Technical Colleges will be visiting all of the Deployment Group 4 colleges as we prepare for the Implementation phase. During their October 4 visit at Highline, the State Board will meet with our ctcLink project team and subject matter experts (SMEs). They will provide an overview of what to expect during the next three to six months as we participate in the next phase of the ctcLink project. Highline’s ctcLink project manager, Pat Daniels, will be sending out an invitation to all SMEs for this important meeting.

Sept. 17, 2019: President’s Welcome During Opening Week

Look for an update on the ctcLink project during President Mosby’s morning presentation on Sept. 17, where he welcomes everyone to the 2019-20 academic year.

July 29-30, 2019: Peer Review

Highline and the other six Deployment Group 4 colleges engaged in a two-day peer review. During the process, we reviewed all of the project documentation for each college and used a rubric to assess readiness of all of the colleges in our deployment group. We are happy to report that Highline received high scores in all areas and all colleges in our group are well prepared for the next phase of the project. We are very fortunate to be where we are and all of our hard work to date has paid off. The ctcLink project has several major phases: Initiation, Implementation, Go-Live and Stabilization. Passing the peer review means that we have successfully completed the Initiation phase. Success during this portion of the project is thanks to Highline’s 90 or so subject matter experts. (More to come on them in a future post.) The Initiation phase included college readiness activities, project execution plans, Legacy business process maps, resources/budget allocation and more. Next up: Implementation.

May 30, 2019: Subject Matter Expert Celebration and Update

Highline’s subject matter experts (SMEs) have been working behind the scenes on business process mapping (BPM), a critical early step in our preparation to transition to ctcLink. We will celebrate their accomplishments and efforts. We will also give SMEs a sneak peek at what’s new for ctcLink at Highline College.
