Data Visibility and Process Improvement
Jennifer Cameron is the Director of Data Visibility and Process Improvement. She will focus on documenting many of Lipscomb’s existing manual processes which create large burdens on staff, with a goal of producing automated methods that scale well beyond the existing staff. She will also focus on better visibility of data, continuing to advance the use of Argos as an analytical tool to produce better adhoc reporting and measures of existing processes.
The Student Workers of the Information Technology department serve a vital part of our support to the students of Lipscomb. Their staffing of the Student HelpDesk gives users a resource that is open in the evening to get help with issues they may be having.
