Continuous improvement is an organized approach to identifying opportunities for improvement that can help an organization meet its goals for increasing profits, reducing costs, and accelerating innovation. The approach is also used to enhance the quality of a product or service, and to improve safety. This course presents to Business Operations Management students & Project Management students basics of continuous process improvement via PDCA methodology. PDCA (Plan, Do, Check, Act) is a systematic approach to an ongoing review of workflows and outcomes to identify ways to improve them both. An emphasis will be placed on team problem solving approaches and the development of teamwork skills. This course provides an ideal foundation for students aspiring to pursue further education in continuous improvement via Lean, Kaizen or Six Sigma.
