- Abstract:
-- At Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), we are seeking to make
business improvement projects more successful and create transparency within our organization.
-- We envision a culture of continuous improvement supported by a fully-integrated program that will promote CDOT’s values of Customer Service and Excellence.
-- To do this we have developed an initiative called Concept to Project, or "C2P".
-- C2P focuses on business improvement projects that impact how people work,
-- Such as projects that are designed to improve business, process improvements, and restructures.
-- Business improvement projects can originate all over our organization and it is important to provide transparency and support to make these projects as successful as they can be.
-- C2P’s initial goals are to:
--- Provide a one-stop shop for business improvement projects with a robust list of services including tools, resources, training, consultation services, and a support network.
--- Provide a transparent look for all Team CDOT’ers into the business improvement projects happening at CDOT.
--- Help everyone who is impacted by change be successful with that change. Our team has partnered with stakeholders and sponsors from around CDOT to collaborate in developing C2P. C2P has recently ‘gone live’, we are excited to navigate the change this will create across CDOT.
