Workday governance committee (WGC) purpose

The purpose of the Workday Governance Committee is to consider how to best use technology resources to meet joint institutional objectives, maximize the benefits derived from these applications, and support the efficient use of all TCC ERP resources. The committee is accountable to deliver increasing value to TCC community through the deliberate and effective administration of TCC’s mission-critical administrative functions. The WGC makes decisions related to ERP policy, process, and investment, prioritizing those efforts which have the greatest impact on TCC’s success. The committee has shared accountability in the delivery and support of this strategic information technology.  Committee members represent the entire TCC community. When making recommendations, they are charged with taking into account the entire community and not just the individual goals of their units, departments, divisions or institutions.

The WGC is an appointed subcommittee of the Information Technology Steering Committee (ITSC) and serves at the pleasure of, reports to and is directly accountable to ITSC.

august 2019 update

Greetings TCC Community,

As the 2019-20 school year kicks off, we felt it important to provide everyone with an update on the current status and what has been happening to realize and bring to fruition One Workday for The Claremont Colleges.

The Workday Governance Committee (WGC) continues to work on resolving and moving forward on strategic issues surrounding further Workday integration, optimization and governance. In May of 2019, the Workday Governance Operations Committee (WGOC) began meeting. The purpose of the WGOC is to manage operations of all Workday pillars holistically.  The WGOC is comprised of members of each of the Cores as well as Subject Matter Experts.

Currently, a subcommittee of members of the WGC and WGOC is working to clarify the priorities structure and key core principles for the WGOC as they do their work to optimize the system. Once this priorities document is completed, it will help to foster a better understanding for everyone from the end-user to the Presidents’ Council of the principles by which changes and configurations are made to the system to best meet the needs of the TCC community.

Some of the other specifics that WGC and WGOC are currently working on include developing roadmaps using agile methodology, resolving issues to improve usability, inclusion and accessibility and preparing for a community-wide survey about Workday to launch later this fall. The WGC is also working to build a structure for managing legal issues that arise in the implementation of Workday and other administrative systems.

There has also been a shift in WGC leadership; Andrew Dorantes (VP for Administration and Finance/Treasurer, HMC) is now the Vice Chair, and he will become the Chair of the committee in January of 2021, following the term of current Chair William Morse (Vice President and Chief Information Officer, Pomona).

In order to keep everyone apprised of the work of the WGC and WGOC, we will be making more frequent updates to this website. We also look forward to sharing the priorities document and everyone’s participation in the survey.

Please feel free to submit additional questions to Colin Tudor, via the project website or by speaking directly with a WGC member (listed to the right).

Thank you,

The Workday Governance Committee
