Organizational Excellence

About Organizational Excellence at USC

Organizational excellence has always been a priority, but the time is right for a renewed and sustained focus. The key is to make it practical – to achieve excellence through real improvements that add up over time and generate meaningful results.

Improvement Projects

The work of the Office of Organizational Excellence focuses on two types of projects: Process Improvement Projects that streamline key processes, and Resource Optimization Projects that align strategy, ensure coordination, and make wise use of resources.
