A statement from the rationale for the need of the People Process Chair position best establishes the premise for our teaching strategy:
Currently, our students experience curricula that prepare them to become a productive professional. They encounter excellent instruction that introduces some ideas about organization cultures. We, however, do not have a compelling, comprehensive, and integrated approach that teaches our students and graduates to effectively apply the skills, knowledge and values that build and enhance an outstanding organization culture such as the Phillips Plastics People Process Culture. This chairmanship provides the capacity to galvanize internal and external resources to achieve and uphold this mission.
