We’d like to get your input and feedback on an exciting new tool for generating and cultivating staff ideas. The new tool is called Ideation and is part of the Business Process Excellence initiative (BPEX), which is a supporting component of Operational Excellence (OPEX).
You can use the tool to submit new ideas, vote on other staff member’s ideas, or add comments. There will be different campaigns (categories) posted periodically on Ideation. Starting today, we invite you to join Ideation and submit your ideas on the following campaigns:
How we can save money at UCAR/NCAR/UCP. Even the most unique and creative ideas are welcome. Based on your experiences in your own department, and areas of the organization you interact with, are there processes that can be done in a more cost effective manner. Areas where we could cut back on expenses? How can these be accomplished?
We all deserve a pat on the back once in a while! Tell us your ideas for inexpensive ways to recognize staff? How can we make a big impact on a small budget?
Each idea will be reviewed by a moderator, who will respond to your suggestion. Please keep in mind that your ideas and comments can be viewed by any member.
