Results Achieved to Date
- April 2001: Improvements in World Campus operation include: 1) more effective inter-unit handoffs based on shared expectations; 2) a foundation for development of a complete system process map and monitoring system; 3) an organizational understanding of our processes that allows us to more clearly communicate and rationalize our operations to all stakeholders and partners.
- Next steps: 1) mapping processes internal to each unit; 2) targeting processes--both internal and at the interfaces--for continued improvement; and 3) developing a monitoring system.
