CIO Story: LEADing Lights – Building a System for the System

Three years ago, CEWA embarked on a large-scale transformation program to create a single digital ecosystem, capable of servicing all of its 162 schools regardless of geographic remoteness, number of students per school or school’s total income. Immensely scalable and easily accessible technology enabled through Cloud is now helping us deliver on the promise of equitable access to high quality education for all our students and staff. Carefully managing the “people side” of this change has been an important enabler and a success factor. As our schools rapidly onboard the platform we are elevating our operational ability in readiness to unlock further opportunities which are made possible by us working as one CEWA rather than “the office and 162 schools”. With many successes and learnings along the way, we think that we have an important story to share which may offer valuable insights to other school systems undergoing transformation.
