Process management is an essential activity for the success of digital transformations. You have to systematize before you automate. Eficio consultants can help you optimize and automate your business processes.
The areas of process management can be represented by this diagram:
A business process architecture (BPA) is the main artifact of process management and improvement. If you don’t have a process architecture, you’re not doing process management. If you don’t have a documented and agreed-upon understanding of the relationships and interdependencies between your key business processes, you can’t be sure of truly effective process improvement. Cross-functional business processes (“Value Chain”) are the only way an organization can deliver value (products or services) to customers and other stakeholders outside the organization. A process architecture is more than an image or a model, business process architecture is an aid to strategic and operational management in an organization focused on continuous improvement and the delivery of an excellence service.
Today’s hypercompetitive and dynamic business environment forces organizations to adopt new technologies to improve the efficiency of existing processes. The business must create the structural capabilities necessary to maintain its competitive advantage and execute innovative ideas.
The BPM roadmap is a process for analyzing the performance of your business processes which aims to identify the most promising improvement and automation initiatives. A critical aspect of the process optimization and automation strategy will be selling the benefits, gaining buy-in, and gaining approval for implementation.
If carefully crafted, the BPM roadmap will put in place key components of BPM that support strategic/operational directions and frame transformation initiatives. This way, leaders will be able to get quick payoffs and use those payoffs to continue justifying the current road to the process management vision.
