Our Approach Descriptive not prescriptive Looking at the tip of the iceberg Experts in the content area; not organizational consultants Inspire, not direct Suggestions for managing processes based on experience not just concepts 9 We understand that many of you have heard some or all of these theories and we don’t want to just spoon feed you some ideas. We also don’t intend to give you a formula since there isn’t such a thing…instead, we plan to describe how we have done it or used the process There is lots of material about these concepts out there and we are just going to touch the tip of the iceberg Heavier on practice than theoryWe understand that many of you have heard some or all of these theories and we don’t want to just spoon feed you some ideas.

10. Performance Planning Process Mission Our purpose Goals Our expected results Tasks/Processes What we do Evaluation How did we do? 10 Iterative, not linearIterative, not linear

11. Discussion Topic: Mission How many of you work in a unit with a written mission statement? How many of you know your unit’s mission (written or unwritten)? Define mission – what does it represent for you? 11 This section will be handled as a show of hands for the first two questions followed by a whole group discussion of the 3rd questionThis section will be handled as a show of hands for the first two questions followed by a whole group discussion of the 3rd question

12. Outline and Align 12

13. Activity Outline “What would you say…ya do here?” Bob Slydell, Office Space Organize your activities into meaningful categories e.g. programs, work functions, common objectives This may require creating a hierarchy of activities 13

14. DRS Core Focus Areas Hazardous waste collection and disposal Regulatory compliance Database development Consultation & awareness/education 14

15. Activity Outline Functions and programs are placed within focus areas 15

16. Activity Outline Activities within functions/programs are divided into goals 16

17. Goal Setting Goal = statement of intended future results Task = action to fulfill goal 17

18. Smart Goal Setting Specific Measurable Achievable (attainable, action-oriented) Relevant (realistic, results-oriented) Time-bound (trackable, tangible, time-limited, time line) 18

19. Specific Clear, unambiguous, well-defined Sets scope – tells what is expected Reduce costs vs. Reduce state funds expenditures 19

20. Measureable Establish concrete criteria for measuring progress and defining success Assist in determining if result is achievable Reduce state funds expenditures vs. Reduce state funds expenditures by 5% from the prior fiscal year 20

21. Achievable Limitations are identified Necessary resources are available Possible to accomplish Success is likely Reduce state funds expenditures by 50% from the prior fiscal year vs. Reduce state funds expenditures by 5% from the prior fiscal year 21

22. Relevant Leads to the intended result Aligned with the Mission and unit goals Important to the organization Reduce state funds expenditures by 5% from the prior fiscal year Does your unit have state funds? 22

23. Time-bound Specific time frame or completion date Critical in goal prioritization and staging Assist in determining if result is achievable Promotes accountability Reduce state funds expenditures by 5% from the prior fiscal year by the end of the current fiscal year 23

24. Formulate a SMART Goal Choose 1 topic from the list: Financial transaction processing Appointment processing Training Topic of your choice 24 Group task to rewrite one goal in SMART fashion and post on flip chart sheetGroup task to rewrite one goal in SMART fashion and post on flip chart sheet

25. From Goals to Actions What steps are necessary to achieve the goals? Who is responsible for these tasks? How will you track task completion? How do you ensure accountability? 25

26. From Goals to Actions Goals are broken down into a list of required tasks with completion dates and assigned staff leads 26

27. Tool -Process Mapping Visually depict the task Micro vs. macro view of process Process “as is” vs. process you want Engage those who “do” the process 27

28. Process Mapping 28

29. Analyze Process Does the process support a goal of the unit? What assumptions are inherent (i.e. internal requirement, campus requirement, regulatory requirement)? Duplication of effort, duplication of data entry? Replication of old process with new tools? 29

30. Analysis: Future State 30

31. From Process Analysis to Tracking 31

32. Another Example 32

33. Task 2: Map this Process Purchase computer for your unit head Implement use of HR Front End in your unit Prepare a proposal budget for a faculty member Process of your choice 33

34. Evaluation Continual tracking throughout the year Programs/functions used in biweekly meeting agenda template Meet 3x/year to review plan Provides a list of accomplishments Framework for annual report Assists in employee performance evaluations Reveals issues Resource needs, poor planning, unanticipated events, performance problems 34
