Feedback and conclusions were complemented by two international transformation frameworks.

Digital Transformation Model at UTEC

Phase I

In-depth analysis of the reasons for digitalization, how to do it, data organization methods for future use.

Phase II

Defining what can be automated and accelerated based on the analysis of data, processes and institutional priorities.

Phase III

Legal frameworks, policies, protocols, roles and tasks assigned to people; identification of opportunities for improvement in university processes and models.

Each one of these stages should be integrated in all university processes and must be led by the members of the institution. This is the main challenge of the Digital Transformation Center at UTEC.

For the definitions of actions to be carried out by the DTC, the guidelines established in the UTEC 2021-2025 Strategic Plan, the advances related to digital transformation in recent years and international trends are taken into account.
