It’s time for another one of those great surveys that gives us all a better understanding of something in Higher Education. This “State of Outsourcing” was inspired by my upcoming presentation at the .eduGuru Summit, You Don’t Need IT To Do That. I’ll be presenting the results in that presentation and will release the results in a follow-up post after the Summit. The survey will be open through the month of March, but please don’t wait until the last minute!
Over the past ten years we have seen a range of incredible online tools change the way we do business, but I’m curious exactly how much we have adopted all of these tools. That is one of the questions that I hope to answer with this survey. I also didn’t want to limit outsourcing to just software. I’m also curious about what services are being outsourced. I tried to include everything that people commonly outsource and took quite a bit of feedback on what people would like to see included. Hopefully you are as interested in the results of this survey as we are.
I do want to give a shout out to SurveyGizmo through which I’m “outsourcing” the survey. This is a pretty freaking powerful and customizable tool!
Finally, please don’t be shy to tweet and share this survey to get as many of your friends and colleagues to help us get an accurate picture of our industry.
