Wisconsin Forward Award to pilot streamlined process  

We anticipate the pilot to save examiner time upfront by reducing comment writing, and offering mechanisms for examiner team members to communicate and share information more easily. Examiner teams should be able to complete the review steps in less time, which means applicants receive their feedback reports faster.

The Vital Few™ - A Systematic Approach to Identify Work Priorities

Juggling too many plates this holiday season? We've got a webinar you won't want to miss!   

Many organizations struggle to define work priorities, often undertaking improvement efforts that don't deliver the desired impact. The Vital Few™ is a systematic approach that focuses on determining the most vital improvements towards creating customer value and delivering meaningful impact in any situation.
This webinar will demonstrate how The Vital Few™ led a major provider of healthcare services to identify improvement investments that were vastly different from those originally proposed. In fact, during the webinar you will see how the solution envisioned before using The Vital Few™ could have had a negative impact on the organization - both financially and to customer experience.  Read more about the Vital Few system and our upcoming workshops in March.

Our Tuesday webinar series is always free, and  preregistration is requested.   WCPE is hosting this webinar with our friends at the California Council for Excellence.

On deck for January 8 is Urvi Patel, Director of Quality Improvement at  the American Health Care Association.  ACHA's award program is aligned with the Baldrige Framework. 

The Wisconsin Center for Performance Excellence, in partnership with our friends at MiPRO, features a complimentary webinar on the 2nd Tuesday of each month from 11 - noon central. Webinars will feature performance excellence experts and practitioners from various sectors who will share insights to help you and your organization get better, faster.  Webinars are archived here.
