As the mapping of SEM Phase 1 comes to a close, on Monday the core SEM team paused to reflect on its accomplishments.
After a video welcome by President Baehre-Kolovani, Daniel DeMarte, Chuck Lepper and James Toscano, the project champions, awarded team members with “SEMMYs” in such categories as Most Steps Reduced, Best Process Mapping, Most Team Encouragement, Most Responsibility, Most Flexible Team, Busiest Team, and Most Ambitious Team.
Each member of the team was awarded an “SEM Trail Blazer” certificate for their pioneering work to undertake important process change at the college and collaborate to develop a system consistent with our focus on One College, One Voice, One Future.
Now comes the hard part – making the outlined future state the college’s new reality to better serve our students and make the process more seamless for staff. Stay tuned for communications over the next few weeks that address how this work is being accomplished. Additional photos from the SEM celebration luncheon can be viewed on Flickr.
