Supporting research activity is a complex task involving a myriad of activities. As such, business processes to support the management of research needs to be constantly evolving to ensure researchers and other stakeholder expectations are being met.  
  
Business process improvement enables you to identify areas where you can improve accuracy, effectiveness and/or efficiency and then redesign those processes to realize improvements. These may include specific methodologies such as the well known Lean/Six Sigma, Balanced Scorecards, Human Centred Design and Agile delivery. This elective will introduce participants to common business improvement tools and use example processes along with case studies to explore the use of such tools in improving research management processes.
