Continuous Improvement Training

Screen Shot 2019-07-01 at 4.14.04 PMIn October 2018, a second cohort of Creighton faculty and staff attended Continuous Improvement training.  This course was offered with the goal of presenting new tools and techniques designed to enhance continuous improvement initiatives across campus.  The twelve-hour course was taught by Dr. Nalini Prabagaran from the Heider College of Business and offered through the Center for Professional and Corporate Excellence.   Participants were then asked to apply their learning to a project in their area.

On April 17, the class participants presented their projects to each other, leaders from their college, school or division, Provost Murray and Jan Madsen, Executive Vice President.  Generated from these projects are impacts such as cost avoidance, time savings, improved service levels and process efficiency.  Congratulations to this talented group of colleagues in achieving yellow belt certification in Lean Six Sigma!
