  2. Purpose This material is intended to provide scope and focus to the Process Improvement Teams during the Secondary Working Sessions

  3. Definitions • A process is: A sequence of related activities or events that have a start point (input or trigger) and an end point (an output). • Processes are: Transformational, in that they take inputs, apply resources to them in order to change something, and produce an output. • The process should create an output of greater value than the input.

  4. Process Improvement Achieving performance excellence here: Financial Business/management Acquisition Project Management Assessements ISM Safeguards and Security Human capital Information Technology Means improving alignment with Mission Priorities and workforce needs

  5. Guiding Tenets and Principles • Make Team Diverse – Field, HQ, Manager, Staff • Reduce redundancy and duplication of effort • Increase consistency across the EM sites and reduce variation where possible • “Low as you can go”: strive to define commonality across sites; challenge status quo and processes that seem untouchable (e.g., site-specific)

  6. Guiding Tenets and Principles(cont’d) • Aggressively challenge the status quo • Improve processes within DOE’s existing business practices/systems • Aggressively challenge existing requirements • Give highest priority to areas that reduce cost of doing business • Establish not only steps and sequences, but also performance standards (e.g., turn-around times) • Design systems exclusive of existing staffing plans – focus on functions not positions
