Organizational Excellence (OE) will be hosting a campuswide “Showcase” event on Thursday, May 4 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The Showcase will be a departure from the normal OE event format and will bring together diverse campus groups to present their OE-related projects and successes.

The Showcase will be outside on South Lawn, just outside of Hinderaker, in a fair-style format, allowing individuals to find areas of particular relevance and interest to their work and to learn from other OE-focused groups on campus.

The Showcase will be an opportunity to highlight work currently happening on campus to improve the use of UCR resources and to promote OE in the following areas:

  1. Creating a culture of collaboration and innovation
  2. Streamlining business processes
  3. Standardizing business processes

Individuals and campus groups who have enjoyed success in these areas are encouraged to showcase the lessons learned from these types of projects and initiatives by completing the Showcase Application Form at

Showcase applications will be due by close of business Friday, March 10. Applicants selected for the Showcase will be notified by Monday, March 20.

Whether it is LEAN Thinking in Printing and Reprographics, the newly commissioned Conferencing and Events OE Workgroup, or the CHASS LEAN Book Club, OE is impacting all areas of campus. To learn more about some of these grassroots OE initiatives, please visit the Spotlights page on the OE website at

The Organizational Excellence Planning Committee will provide additional information regarding the Showcase in the coming weeks. Updates will also be posted to the OE website.
