About Lean Process Improvement

Every organization is a collection of processes. These processes are the natural business activities you perform that produce value, serve customers and generate results. Many organizations follow dated policies and procedures because of the tradition of "that's how it's always been done." Process improvement techniques can greatly increase productivity and efficiency and/or reduce the cost of operations by eliminating waste and non- value added steps and uncovering the root causes of systematic quality issues. In most cases, only a small percent of all activities supporting business processes add value for customers and end-users.

About Project and Change Management

Institutions of Higher Education have been steadily embracing the disciplines of project management and change management as a way to improve project results. Adhering to project and change management methods and strategies reduces risk, cuts costs and significantly improves business outcomes. Attendees who have completed the Lean Process Improvement Workshop have an Action Plan to track and drive a "real live" improvement effort at their institution. So what are the next steps? The Project and Change Management Workshop is designed to walk attendees through step by step processes and best practices to successfully define, plan and implement their business process improvement projects.
