[Micronet] {BPAWG} 10/21/10 - Organizational Simplification: Shared Services Design

James Kent Dudek
The Business Process Analysis Working Group (BPAWG) Presents:

“Organizational Simplification:  Shared Services Design”
  (description below)
Thursday, October 21, 2010
3:00 - 4:30pm
60 Barrows Hall

This session will be streamed and archived at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/bpawg-at-berkeley


Members of the Organizational Simplification team.


Organizational Simplification is one of the seven initiatives in the campus wide program of Operational Excellence. Organizational Simplification is comprised of two components:
  1. Restructuring of units – 27 unit leaders have been asked to propose an organizational structure that achieves distinct targets:
    • Spans target: Each unit will have a target for the average number of direct reports per supervisor.
    • Savings target: Each unit will have an associated target dollar savings.
  2. Designing shared service centers – The Shared Service Design Team is working on shared service models for campus that will deliver common administrative functions in HR, Finance, and IT.
This session will be a discussion of the second component.  You will hear from the design team members about the progress being made, and you will be asked for your feedback and ideas of what elements would strengthen such a design.

More information about the Organizational Simplification initiative, as well as other OE initiatives, can be found at the OE website: http://berkeley.edu/oe/ . In particular, you may want to review our FAQ http://berkeley.edu/oe/phase2/qa.shtml .
