Organizational Effectiveness

The Office of Organizational Effectiveness (OE) was established in May of 2012 with its goal being to optimize the strategic organizational effectiveness across the University of Maine System. Organizational Effectiveness is responsible for assisting the UMS Board of Trustees, Chancellor, Presidents and other leaders with design, development and implementation of projects, initiatives, policies, and processes that effectively utilize resources while enhancing service and deliverables for our internal and external customers.

OE encompasses the principles of change readiness assessment and management, organizational alignment, efficiency and effectiveness, employee engagement, team-building, facilitation, meeting skills, the role of structure and systems, benchmarking and metrics, strategy development, cultural assessments, process improvement and optimization, leadership development and project management.
