Business Process Improvement Showcase

Posted on 09/27/2016

On September 22, 2016, the Business Process Improvement (BPI) Shared Service hosted the Business Process Improvement Showcase at the Illini Union. This inaugural event attended by nearly 200 members of the Urbana campus faculty and staff was developed as an opportunity to share ideas on how to improve business processes at Illinois, delivering faster, better services to our faculty, students, and other stakeholders given the current fiscal environment.

The showcase was an open, free event for all members of the University of Illinois community to participate, share, and learn.

The BPI Shared Service would like to thank Dr. Paul Ellinger (Vice Provost for Budget and Resource Planning), Dr. Edward Feser (Interim Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and Provost), and Dr. Michael Hites (CIO for University Administration and Senior Associate Vice President, AITS) for speaking at the event and highlighting the importance of striving to improve business processes.

The BPI Shared Service would also like to thank the 21 vendors who were on hand to explain how their services could help streamline processes, and the 26 campus units who shared their process improvement experiences either in poster presentations or during breakout sessions. However, the sharing doesn't have to stop with the showcase. The BPI Shared Service would like to hear more about your experiences with improving business processes in your campus unit.
