Are you tired of top-down “efficiency” initiatives? Find out how UC–Riverside flipped this idea on its head to create a radically different grassroots version of Organizational Excellence (OE) that has more than 300 staff and faculty truly excited about streamlining and standardizing practices. The speakers will discuss how to introduce OE to your campus, secure support for OE among leadership, cultivate ownership of OE within the broader campus, create staff champions, and promote professional development at all levels.
- Create buy-in, support, and ownership of Organizational Excellence among leadership.
- Develop a feedback mechanism for campus stakeholders to set the trajectory of OE initiatives and create staff champions.
- Encourage campus stakeholders to identify areas and processes within individual units in need of improvement.
