Continue with the organization that you discussed in the first two weeks.
For the first paragraph of your post, summarize some of the key information about your organization, the change you are discussing, and one or two key points you have discovered thus far in your work. This section should be no more than 5–6-sentences and should be just enough to remind your readers of your scenario.
For the second paragraph(s) of your post, consider how focusing on continuous improvement would help your own organization. Address the following:
- Which process improvement approach would you recommend?
- How would you go about using that process? Justify its use.
- Against whom would you benchmark or determine best practices?
- What ethical considerations would need to be considered?
The final paragraph (three or four sentences) of your initial post should summarize the one or two key points that you are making in your initial response.
Provide a substantive (500-to 1,000-word) initial discussion posting addressing each of the components in the discussion question. Justify your answers with research, examples, and reasoning. Comment on the initial postings of at least two peers. At a minimum, your responses to other initial posts must be 100 to 200 words each.
By the end of the week, begin commenting on at least two of your peers’ responses. You can ask technical questions or respond generally to the overall experience. Be objective, clear, and concise. Always use constructive language, even in criticism, to work toward the goal of positive progress. Submit your responses to the appropriate topic in this Discussion Area.
