Change Using Simple Process Improvement
Alan Vanderburg, MHR

Most process improvement initiatives, particularly in government, are complicated, slow and not very flexible.  In 2017, Tulsa County, began using a four-step process improvement tool that is simple, engaging, flexible, quick and effective.  In this session you will experience the tool by creating your own plan, with actions, timelines, and measurements, for improving a system or problem in your workplace.  

At the end of this session participants will: 

  • Understand the system view process improvement tool
  • Identify key processes that need to be improved
  • Create a process improvement plan using the system view tool
