    Process Improvement Mindset

    9:30am to 11:30am

    Location: 

    Center for Workplace Development, 124 Mt. Auburn St. Room 3314

    Innovative thinking often requires looking at current processes differently; on having a process improvement mindset. We define mindset as the ideas and attitudes with which a person approaches a situation. This is an active workshop conducted through a simulation that provides the opportunity to learn tools and concepts of streamlining a process while at the same time eliminating waste and creating value. Highly interactive and fun, this workshop will give you the opportunity to develop a different “lens” for looking at processes.
