Process thinking is an essential skill for your life, both personally and professionally. The phrase “process improvement” might evoke memories of business trends from the 1990’s — “BPI” and “Six Sigma,” for example – that sound a bit outdated, but that actually resulted in significant cost reductions, accelerated schedules, and customer-oriented quality enhancements. Developing the ability to identify, analyze, improve and create processes will result in dramatic improvements in your life.

In this webinar, Andrea Dolph (Col ’79) will explore the pivotal skill that she calls “process thinking”. You will learn:

  • How to develop a process-oriented mindset
  • How a process-orientation can help you
    • work faster
    • be more creative
    • collaborate more effectively
    • be a better problem solver
    • save money, and
    • have a more peaceful family life!
