A LEAN workout team of 14 dedicated Columbia College employees banded together to analyze the admissions and enrollment processes for the college’s nursing program between Dec. 8-Dec.10 in the Jane Froman Studio.
The workout was the sixth iteration of the program that launched just over a year ago which is designed to improve efficiency and encourage dialogue both inside departments and externally to other departments around the college. The workout team was successful in simplifying the Nursing program enrollment and registration process from its current length of 52 steps to just 16 steps and is now proceeding with the implementation portion of the process.
The amazing group was recognized for their efforts with a special ceremony where they were presented a certificate, treated to a Shakespeare’s pizza party and were then nominated for a P.A.W.S. award for their efforts. Several members of Administrative Council were in attendance at the recognition ceremony including President Scott Dalrymple.
Congratulations, thank you to everyone that participated and remember to think LEAN!
