The Office of Quality Initiatives continues to support Carleton departments and faculties remotely. Some of the services we provide include:

  • Change management support – facilitation and workshops for individuals and intact teams.
  • Strategic planning – guidance and assistance with planning efforts by helping clients to develop their mission, goals and strategies, and associated objectives, initiatives, and measures.
  • Process improvement – assistance with the analysis and redesign of existing core administrative processes to achieve effectiveness and efficiency in day-to-day operations.
  • Benchmarking – assistance with identification and understanding of best practices in work processes, in order to improve service delivery.
  • Facilitation – assistance with the planning and implementation of retreats, workshops and meetings so the participants can focus on the issues and topics of the day.
