Resilient Communities Project (RCP), University of Minnesota
This project was completed as part of the 2015-2016 Resilient Communities Project (rcp.umn.edu) partnership with Carver County. Carver County staff had initiated continuous improvement and innovation workshops across a variety of departments. The goal of this project was to identify evaluation tools to assess the impact of these various continuous improvement efforts. Carver County project lead Lorraine Brady worked with nine teams of students in MBA 6220: Operations and Management to evaluate the initiatives, identify measurement tools and strategies, and develop recommendations for continuing improvement actions implemented during the workshops. The students' aggregated final report is available.
Report completed by students enrolled in MBA 6220: Operations Management, taught by Scott Martens in spring 2016.
