Improving Organizational Efficiency with Process Improvement
According to a Gallup poll on the state of the U.S. workplace, unhappy workers each year cost the U.S. between $450 and $550 billion in lost productivity. When employees are disgruntled, disengaged, and unhappy, their work can suffer and lead to resignations. The NCU performance improvement specialization helps you analyze workplace productivity and identify the areas for process improvement, as well as to plan and implement the modifications necessary for the organization. You will learn how to apply foundational principles to product design and operations, technology, quality, and marketing, in order to build performance and deliver products that meet customer expectations. Students learn how to apply these principles to teams, systems, processes, and organizations with the goal of building programs and delivering customizations that make them function more efficiently and effectively.

“During each aspect of my doctoral journey, hearing my chair say ‘you said the right things, you did the right things, but there is something more,’...that kept me motivated. I think that shaped me. I’m much better for it, and I’m definitely more ready to provide good quality service and give people good teaching, coaching and mentoring today.” - Jessie Maggitt, PhD in Business Administration (2016)
