Business Process Review begins with a meeting with upper management where the company strategic goals and objectives are understood
Based on priorities established from the management meeting key processes are analyzed and measured against their ability to meet company goals and objectives. Tactics such as Gap Analysis are used in the process.
The strategic alignment of the processes is reviewed, a report is developed and presented to management. Misalignment of process capabilities against strategic goals are presented as opportunities to the management team.
The management team prioritizes the opportunities and establishes expected time lines.
A draft implementation plan is prepared based on the expected timelines. A review of available resources is made and adjustments to the plan made as required.
Working with the resources assigned to each opportunity the implementation plans are executed. During implementation the management team is kept appraised of the status of all projects.
Once the list of opportunities has been prioritized from the business process review those items selected will flow into the rapid implementation process
The first step is the establishment of a steering committee. The individuals that are selected for each improvement project will receive team training.
Team training is where we cover things like, forming, norming, storming and performing. Individuals learn what slows a team down and how to work well together.
Teams receive training on how to optimize processes. The training comes from our process optimization program.
Milestone progress reports are submitted to the steering committee that are used to insure the teams stay on-time, on target and on budget
Teams report the final results obtained from the implementation
