Richard Grimes, MPA, C.P.T.
This course is for people wanting to understand the design and management of efficient work processes in any environment for any product. Public organizations will benefit as much as private because work efficiency and productivity is essential to both. The concepts presented here are universal whether processing legal documents or building toasters on an assembly line.
Plenty of practice exercises (with answers following) give students the opportunity to understand the concepts of production planning, equilibrium, and efficiency and apply them in their own work. Students will be able to measure existing production capacity and forecast future demand while analyzing data to determine breakeven points for equipment purchase or leasing and creating optimal staffing strategies with full or part-time help.
Profitability only comes when we make the most efficient and effective use of our existing resources and available data.
This course includes a multiple choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
Disclaimer: This course contains portions of P149 - Budget Concepts for Non-Financial Leaders and P168 Financial Proposals: The Why and the How. Students who have taken those courses previously can expect to see a review on these topics.
