After almost seven months of coaching and training under the Continuous Improvement Program (CIP), the CI Team of the Schools Division of Imus City composed of Mr. Gregorio A. Co Jr. as the Team Leader; Mr. Ivan Honorpette A. Mijares, in charge of Communication; Ms. Adora G. del Mundo, Process Observer; Ms. Riza C. Garcia, Documenter; and Ms. Matea Alvyn H. Trinidad, Scribe unveiled its CI Project focusing on promotion process during the CI Symposium held at the Lima Park Hotel in Malvar, Batangas from July 18-20.

The team presented their division-based CI Project entitled Personnel Promotion Process or 3Ps which aimed at developing strategies and techniques in solving and improving the promotional process through streamlining activities in the process flow and designating appropriate person or group of persons to do the job and to avoid repetitive tasks.

From the 6.26 promotional processing time, the CI Team was able to reduce the processing time to 3.75 months.

The Human Resource Office as process owner and the Teacher-Applicants as clients both benefited from the process improvement, the CI Team shared.

Believing that continuous improvement should be a way of life and that learners are the recipients of every improvement program in school, the CI Team members said they are now challenged to rollout the Basic Training on CI to the Division’s 35 public schools (elementary, junior and senior high) and capacitate school heads and selected personnel about the CI Methodology.

CIP as a learner-centered program will enable schools to continually improve processes crucial to the learners’ and school performances, they said.

The Division CI Team members received certificates for completing the CI Basic and Master Trainer and Master Coach Training during the graduation rites held on the second day along with other CI Teams from various divisions in National Capital Region and Regions 3, 4-A, 4-B and 5.

They were also given a Continuous Improvement pin which represents responsibility and CI seeds for them to sow.
