At the second annual Process Improvement Symposium last week, eight awards were presented for contributions in business process innovation. A total of 85 individuals and 17 departments and teams were nominated for the awards. COBE staff won in two categories.
In the Shadow Hunter category, the winners were Olgie Castillo, administrative assistant, and Eldar Sakebaev, MBA candidate and graduate assistant, from the Idaho Small Business Development Center. They worked collaboratively on the Account Analysis Pivot and the Grant Analysis Pivot to produce a projection analysis spreadsheet, to identify projected totals and variances and reducing the use of shadow tracking.
Alex Williamson, an administrative assistant in the Department of Accountancy, saw a need and filled it by meeting with each department in the college to set up customized reporting in order to create a self-sufficient business office. She was the Splendid Self-sufficiency winner.
