Continuous Quality Improvement Defined
 CQI is not a time-limited initiative or project.
It is the ongoing process by which an
agency makes decisions and evaluates
progress.”

Organizational Effectiveness Defined
 OE is a systemic and systematic approach to
continuously improving an organization’s
performance, performance capacity and client
outcomes. “Systemic” refers to taking into
account an entire system or in the case of OE an
entire organization; “systematic” refers to taking a
step-by-step approach. In simple terms,
therefore, OE is a step-by-step approach to
continuously improving an entire organization.

rules, defined areas for improvements,
desired future state
Assess
Monitor
Work products – monitoring
quick wins and other changes,
evaluations and measures of
progress and impact
Work products – findings:
strengths and gaps, root causes
and general remedies
Performance

Learning by Doing
How It Works
 A real-world team meets periodically
 In a facilitated peer group
 To troubleshoot “real life” challenges
 Over 4 – 6 months
 Peers and facilitators help learners examine their
challenges in new ways
 Experience with similar situations
 New models and targeted “training”
 Tangible continuous improvement activities

Reflective Thinking
 Think about current change efforts in your
agency… where are they in the stages of
implementation…. Have you been
systematic in defining, assessing, planning,
implementation and monitoring the change
effort?

Readiness for Change
 Three Levels of Readiness
 Priority gap area for continuous improvement
 Moving from a gap to an area of strength to
support continuous improvement
 An area of strength that is supporting
continuous improvement as “a way of doing
business”

Reflective Thinking
 Returning to the change effort you are
implementing…. which elements of
readiness are priority areas for continuous
improvement work, where are you moving
from a gap area to an area of strength, and
which elements are strengths for you and
will be and asset in making continuous
improvement a way of doing business?
