Tasks and objectives of the Staff Unit

Good, up-to-date and digitalised administrative processes and services, using modern, beneficial IT solutions and satisfied users at the University Administration and the university, these are the objectives of the Staff Unit for IT & Process Management.

Tasks and Goals

The goals of the staff department IT- and Process Coordination are to deliver modern and digitalised administration procedures and services, as well as the usage of new IT-solutions used to ensure their users satisfaction.

Especially the goal to develop digitalised administration procedures is very complex. As a result modern working tools are required in the same way as the readiness of the organisation to work together on the necessary changes. The IT- and Process Coordination works on the following task fields, in order to achieve their goal step by step:

• Carry out the IT- Requirements Management

Close cooperation with the HRZ focusing on processing the requirements, providing support and the on-time delivery of projects to contribute to the user’s happiness

Work in various working groups and committees and initiate cooperation

Encourage further development of standardised administration processes, which typically affects several departments or different departments and faculties and focuses on the improvement or creation of new processes on behalf of a modern digitalised administration

Support the chancellor at preparing strategic IT-topics, for example the Process Management, Digitalisation and Transformation, Innovation and IT-Governance

The objective of developing digitalised administrative processes is very complex and requires not only modern, sustainable IT tools, but also to the same extent the willingness of the organisation to jointly work out and implement the necessary changes. To achieve this top-level objective step by step, IT & Process Management is active in the following fields:
