How do you create an organization where everyone is continuously learning, improving and remaining committed to its purpose every day? Leaders from various industries including healthcare, information technology, manufacturing and finance are constantly searching for the answer to this question.
Through research, teaching and engagement with exemplary organizations, we found that creating this perpetual learning organization and culture requires four distinct components, which we’ve incorporated into the Master of Business Operational Excellence (MBOE) program.
The MBOE is an innovative 13-month executive master’s degree program focused on preparing leaders who are able to design and manage at various levels within their organizations. Experienced project coaches and sponsors guide our students during their learning journeys, helping them become experts in four areas: building operational excellence systems, driving decisions with data, creating and sustaining change, and making an impact. View our course list.
The academic foundation of the program is operational excellence systems, which include problem-solving systems, daily-management systems, strategic alignment and adaptability systems, and people-development systems.
While data and analytics have the potential to inform sound decision-making and reveal new opportunities, that power is diminished if it collides with “established ideas and mindsets.” The principles of change management can be applied to open eyes and minds to the new learning that analytics can provide.
Impact from this program should go beyond the organization. During on-campus sessions, our students work closely with a nonprofit organization to make an impact on the community using the principles and skills learned from the program.
