As part of CU Boulder’s culture of continuous improvement and assessment, the Senior Vice Chancellor’s Office recently conducted a program review of the Office for Performance Improvement (OPI). After conducting the review, it was learned that OPI created some confusion for the campus community. Many of OPI’s services fell within the scope of work for which established departments are already responsible. The Senior Vice Chancellor’s Office concluded that the work of OPI should transition to existing permanent departments.
As a result, OPI is no longer a separate office within Finance and Business Strategy. The OPI staff were redeployed to other offices appropriate to lead their efforts. Projects currently underway will transition into the offices identified below. This change provides better clarity regarding which office to turn to for services and allows the work of all to be guided in a unified fashion.
Office for Performance Improvement services and staff have moved to the following areas:
- Change Management and Management Consulting
- Data Consulting and Analysis
- Business Process Improvement
By uniting with these campus units, there will be a more efficient alignment with the overall campus strategy. The University thanks the OPI staff for the quality work they have done and will continue to do as a part of these new teams.
