Real People, Real Projects, Real Results.  In response to the Governor’s Office of Management and Budget’s goal to create more and more value for every tax dollar invested, the departments of Environmental Quality, Agriculture and Food, and Administrative Services have each identified a SUCCESS+ process improvement project specific to the work performed within their individual agencies. Those attending this workshop will learn that by establishing a clear goal, identifying measurable outcomes, and implementing the tools and strategies of the SUCCESS Framework, real results are possible in any work environment.
