Timeline of Activities

Course Overview

We have designed a 6-month-long journey to guide you through the use of improvement science in your organization. The in-person workshop is an important part of the experience, but a small portion of the overall time you will spend working on this project. Along the way, we will provide a series of resources and support structures to empower your team to make headway on a critical problem of practice.

Please review the timeline of activities below to plan your work and hold important dates.
