Higher Education

We partner with academic institutions at the forefront of the premiere student experience to make systems shine. Our thinking transforms that experience as higher education becomes more personal, experiential, outcomes-focused, technology-rich and data-driven.

2Plus2 Partners is my go-to team for major projects. They can do everything I need from project management and business analysis to systems configuration and design. They’ve also been wonderful creative thought partners over the years. Their deep experience in student and academic services means we hit the ground running every time. Whenever I hire 2Plus2 to work on a discovery, the project gets funded; when I bring them in to work on an implementation, the projects are always delivered successfully. There’s no job too big or small for this team, and most importantly, they’re the most productive and conscientious consultants I’ve ever worked with.

The roles we play...

Business Analyst

As business analysts, we focus on defining needs and recommending solutions. We use many tools to document the journey — including in-depth interviews, process flows, use cases, user stories, and detailed business requirements — that become the centerpiece of your RFI/RFP. We review and amend to ensure a common understanding of the solution across key stakeholders. We then survey and engage with the vendor community to find the best solution for you. Part of our recommendation can include a solid implementation plan and budget helping ensure your project gets funded and succeeds.

Project Manager

As project managers, we are concerned with completing projects on time and on budget, and ultimately, the success or failure of your project. We are up to the task though, since we are experts in initiating, executing, managing timelines, planning budgets, allocating resources, mitigating risks, and identifying the resources to get projects done. With us you get lots of transparency and will always know the status of your project. We can run meetings, document outcomes, coordinate external resources, and ultimately make sure everyone knows the status of your project.

Graphic Expert

As graphic experts, we create the package of materials needed to communicate with stakeholders and others in building a common understanding of the project goals and generating excitement. We interpret complex data into meaningful graphics to tell the story in an approachable way. Graphics can then be used in slide decks, status reports, and final reports creating a consistent graphic story for your project. We are expert at taking the process and artifacts of a large project and creating communications pieces that promote your project and the positive impact it will have on students, faculty and staff.
