[Micronet] Joint BPAWG and Agile Brown Bag Meeting: Creating a Culture of Continuous Improvement on Campus: Monday, 9/15 : 290 Hearst Mining Bldg

Judy Dobry-2

For the first Agile Brown Bag of the semester we have quite an exciting opportunity:  Andrea Lambert (OE) and her team are developing a campus plan for creating a culture of continuous business process improvement.  To do that they need our ideas.  So we are joining forces with BPAWG (the Business Process Analysis Working Group) to have a workshop where everyone can contribute to the creating the kind of business process improvement culture that we all want to see at Berkeley.  The announcement is below.

Judy ( on behalf of the Agile Brown Bag Organizing Committee)


The Business Process Analysis Working Group (BPAWG), in partnership with the Agile Users Group, presents:

"Co-creating a Culture of Continuous Improvement” (description below)

290 Hearst Mining Building - NEW ROOM


Andrea Lambert,  Project Manager, Business Process Management Team


Are you a business process or agile management enthusiast? Do you want to help build a Business Process Management (BPM) system that will serve the creation of a process-focused culture at all levels of the organization?  Please come give us your input on what's worked, what hasn't, and why. We want to use your expertise to help build the OE Program Office's project that will design and develop a BPM system for the campus.

Andrea Lambert, Business Process Management System Implementation Project Manager, and members of the BPM Project Team will provide an overview of the project and lead the group in experiential activities aimed at gathering input for project recommendations. We hope you will join us!
