“Other Duties As Assigned”

The Problem with BIT Work and Current Job Descriptions

Another process inefficiency uncovered in the research involves BIT roles and expectations. Forum research illustrates that only a small number of chairs and even fewer team members have BIT work explicitly written into their job descriptions.

Interviewees argue that this omission creates a range of problems including a lack of visibility for BIT work on campus and difficulty in capturing how much time is spent on team tasks.
