View2022 Project Participants

The Importance of Inclusive Project Management 

For a successful implementation of View2022, it is essential to have the engagement and participation of various groups at different stages of the project. Due to the complexities in jobs and reporting structures that currently exists across the institution, it is necessary to understand and accurately describe the work being done by employees. For this reason, we are relying on the involvement of all groups to share communication, attend town hall meetings, check for website updates, participate in role specific interviews, and share feedback.

The following groups, composed of UM and Huron employees, will primarily be responsible for the management of the project.  As we navigate through our timeline, we will be engaging a diverse group of stakeholders across the university to create a more inclusive and educational process that will equip our employees with the knowledge of our compensation program
