Date/Time: Thursday, May 7, 12:00pm – 1:00pm PST
Presenters: BC Centre for Employment Excellence (CfEE) BPM Project Team
BPM is an approach to providing high quality services more efficiently and includes areas such as business process redesign, organizational alignment, business strategy, and knowledge management; more importantly, it promotes organizational learning and capacity building.
This webinar will inform participants about BPM in the non-profit sector and the Centre’s recent R&I project, Strengthening Business to Achieve Higher Performance.
The project team of CfEE Managing Director Susanna Gurr, CfEE Stakeholder Coordinator Greg Lockwood and Community Consultant Tim Beachy will be on hand to describe the project’s background, objectives, methodology and the model that was developed by a group of leaders from non-profit organizations in BC that provide employment services to specialized populations.
Tim Beachy, now semi-retired, remains highly active in leadership and organizing roles in various local not-for-profit organizations, social enterprises, Charities, and businesses. Formerly he was the first Chief Executive Officer of the United Community Services Co-operative from 1998 until his retirement from that position in April 2011. In previous work, Tim was Executive Vice President of United Way of Canada from 1990 through 1994 and Executive Director of Peace Arch Community Services in White Rock, BC in the 1980s.
Since his departure from the Co-operative, Tim has continued to be engaged in community research, development and organizational change work. He works with many organizations that are undertaking co-operative and enterprising development. He holds a Masters of Applied Organizational and Community Psychology from the University of Oregon.
