Showcase 2020: Save-the-date and call for proposals

The Office of Strategic Consulting is looking forward to hosting the 21st annual Showcase event on Wednesday, April 15, 2020. Save the date!

Showcase is a free event that provides an opportunity for colleagues from across the UW–Madison campus to share best practices, learn from each other’s successes, and connect. In response to feedback we’ve received over the past few years—and in keeping with our philosophy of continuous improvement—we are extending Showcase to a full day so participants can take better advantage of all that Showcase has to offer. (We will also again be hosting Preview Activities the afternoon before Showcase, in conjunction with the 2020 Administrative Improvement Awards.) Visit our website to find out more, or register now!

Call for Breakout Session Proposals and Posters

We are currently seeking proposals for 50-minute or 75-minute breakout session presentations that address topics related to organizational effectiveness. Breakout session proposals are due by February 5. Some suggested topic areas include:

  • Leading through change (change management)
  • Process improvement
  • Organizational design
  • Strategic planning
  • Organizational climate and culture
  • Innovative solutions to complex challenges

We are also now actively recruiting for posters. It is never too early to start thinking about exhibiting a poster at Showcase and sharing the fruits of your hard work so others can leverage your successes and benefit from the lessons you learned. Poster idea submissions are due by March 4.

Submit a breakout session proposal or an idea for a poster.
