Do you desire to be more efficient with the processes you oversee, but are unsure of where to start? If you are motivated to improving the processes you work with, this workshop series is for you!

This is a three series workshop for work groups (three-five individuals) to work with your team on completing a process improvement project on a real Stanford work process.
(Note: The content of this series includes: “Process Improvement Basics: The Lego Workshop,” which you can enroll in separately.)

Workshop 3: Based on the process analysis completed in Workshop 2, you will work collaboratively to brainstorm improvements to the challenges you identified. Each idea will be assessed for feasibility and impact and you will be developing an implementation plan for your improvements. Finally, you will draft a future state process flow diagram and will develop a control plan to measure and monitor the success of your improvement efforts. 
 
Prerequisites:
  • Workshop 1 (for individuals or for groups) and Workshop 2
  • Complete required homework from Workshop 2
  • Groups must come with a process in their work area that needs improvement along with a minimum of one improvement target.  Please do not come with a solution already selected. 

Homework:
Please note that each workshop will include homework participants are expected to complete prior to the next session.  Time to complete homework will range from 1-3 hours per week.
