July 11 Brown-Bag Event Addresses How to Move From Idea to Project

The July 11 WiCi brown-bag event, From Idea to Project, was a highly interactive session in which participants worked together to identify obstacles that get in the way of moving ideas to projects—or keeping projects moving—and then developed strategies to overcome these obstacles.

WiCi members Geb Lefeber from University Housing and Mari Ann Menager from the Office of Strategic Consulting presented and facilited the conversation.

What is the WiCi Network?

The Wisconsin Continuous Improvement (WiCi) Network is a university community of practice that was formed to bring together anyone involved in or supporting continuous improvement efforts across campus, or anyone interested in learning, sharing ideas, or networking around the work of continuous improvement.

The Administrative Process Redesign (APR) unit was a sponsoring organizer of the WiCi Network, but the community has not been limited to those involved in APR projects. Whether you are actively engaged in an improvement project, assessing how to bring continuous improvement to your unit, or just interested in learning more, the WiCi Network has a lot to offer.

Join Us at a WiCi Event

The WiCi Network hosts multiple events throughout the year that focus on topics relevant to the practice of process improvement. Some examples of recent event topics include Project Selection, Creating a Project Charter, and Optimizing Your Networking Skills. Anyone is welcome to attend and learn first-hand what the community is about.

Program and registration information is posted to this website and provided via email to email subscribers. To ensure you receive information about WiCi and future events, subscribe to the WiCi email list.
