MGMT 8520 - Organizational Performance Improvement♦


(4 cr.) What is business process redesign, and how can it be used to achieve improvements in performance measures? Students in this course are provided with the opportunity to investigate such questions and survey a wide array of current literature from experts in the field. Students learn about the concepts of performance improvement and process re-engineering. They work toward achieving high-level improvements in organizational performance through redesigned business processes and the use of information technology to re-engineer an organization. Students analyze the data required for organizational performance improvement and then develop and present a report or case study of an organizational setting in the context of performance analysis and improvement. Students also engage in discussion assignments to share ideas and perspectives with peers and to reflect on weekly topics. (Prerequisite(s): RSCH 8101M [may be taken concurrently].)
