Proposal submission

The business transformation portfolio (BTP) currently focuses on high complexity change taking place across the University.

The following criteria determine whether an initiative is high complexity and should form part of the BTP:

BTP complexity criteria

  • Cost
  • Staff effort
  • Elapsed time
  • Number of stakeholder groups impacted (e.g. student, staff, external partners)
  • Extent of knowledge/documentation of applications and business processes
  • Technology complexity
  • Data sensitivity
  • Number of service providers
  • Other initiatives with dependencies on the outputs

If any of the above criteria are relevant to a new initiative, please complete the Business transformation proposal template (Word, 38 KB) articulating an initial description of the improvement idea. 

Once completed this can be submitted by email to the business transformation helpdesk. Please expect to attend the next BTB meeting to present your proposal.

If you are unsure whether your initiative should form part of the BTP, please contact the business transformation helpdesk for guidance.

If you expect your idea will not meet the criteria set out above, please use the Business transformation method guide (PDF, 1,386 KB) as guidance to engage the right expertise across the institution before reconsidering your initiative against the criteria at both outline and full business case. If your initiative meets the criteria set out above at either of these points, please submit your business case to BTB via the business transformation helpdesk.

For existing initiatives already beyond the proposal stage (see business transformation method for details) please contact the business transformation helpdesk for guidance.

Please note: Technology focused initiatives where no business change is required will not be considered business transformation initiatives and will instead be managed by IT Services within a local portfolio.
