Learn about Operational Excellence

Dear Staff, Faculty, and Students:

Please join us for the OE Showcase on Thursday, October 27th, to learn the latest updates about Operational Excellence (OE).

UC Berkeley is improving the way we do business and this open house event will feature dozens of leaders from more than 15 OE project teams providing up-to-the-minute information about their projects, performing product demonstrations, and answering your questions.  We hope you’ll be impressed with the variety and scope of projects now underway.  Additionally, you will meet representatives from campus groups who are helping to build a more efficient UC Berkeley; they will share their ideas and resources for managing change and preparing for the future of UC Berkeley.

Please forward this invitation to your friends, colleagues and/or campus networks so that everyone can join and benefit from this useful, inspiring, and community-building event.

See you at the Showcase!

Best regards,
Andrew Szeri, Faculty Head, Operational Excellence
Peggy Huston, Director, Operational Excellence
and the Operational Excellence Program Office
