TIPS is the Team to Improve Productivity at Stanford, a grass-roots organization that is celebrating its 25 Year Anniversary! 

TIPS was originally started in 1987 so that Stanford school and departmental staff at any level could provide design and implementation input into computer systems projects.

Over the years, TIPS has evolved into "the place to go" for input and participation in a much broader range of projects involving Stanford systems, applications, interfaces, workflow changes.

The format of the monthly meetings is flexible, but in addition to a presentation about the latest project, often there are panels, simple presentations, or discussions with university officials.

TIPS meets on the third Wednesday of the month, and the meetings are open to anyone who works at Stanford University.
