Good afternoon, 

Two weeks ago, I announced that on December 1st from 2-4pm we will host our grand opening as part of our Annual Celebration. This week, I’m excited to share that after a brief hiatus due to the pandemic, we are relaunching our Operational Excellence Awards and will be announcing award recipients at the upcoming celebration! These awards recognize the outstanding contributions of staff members who have supported and promoted the advancement of Operational Excellence’s mission and goals.  

Nominees must be UNC-Chapel Hill staff members who have been involved with an Operational Excellence Project (includes solution design team or implementation, transformation and change management, facilitation or advisory engagements) since September of 2019 and have demonstrated excellence in one or more of the following areas: 

  • Continuous Improvement: Advancing continuous improvement in operations through the design or implementation of tools, processes and services 
  • Collaboration: Establishing partnerships and contributing to an environment of collaboration to effectively solve problems by sharing knowledge, ideas and solutions 
  • Leadership: Building and leading enthusiastic and skillful teams and/or championing innovative initiatives 

To nominate a colleague, please visit and fill out the online nomination form by Friday, November 11 with as much detail as possible. If you wish to nominate multiple people, please submit a separate nomination for each individual. If your nominee is selected, we will contact you prior to our Annual Celebration. We are not accepting self-nominations at this time. 

Please feel free to share this email with your colleagues. You can also visit our website to learn more about Operational Excellence, read my previous updates and submit feedback. If you have any questions, please reach out to me at I read every email.
