Business Process Efficiency

We are covering the eight steps to conducting a Business Process Assessment in this blog series.  Learn how to unleash profits by finding ways to work more efficiently.  In previous blogs we covered; how to compare current ERP systems to new goals, how to create a business process project management committee, who to nominate as the business process project management committee leader, how to develop a comprehensive business process anlysis document to measure and assess the existing business processes, how to define your milestone and project projections and how to prepare a project time line.

In our sixth part of this series we will cover how to determine if your business process challenges are human related or software related.  We will take into consideration technology, people and company organizational goals.  This part of the business process assessment targets results and goals of organizational tasks.  

First, we consider the current company technology business processes within each company department by reviewing the following 5 bullets:

  1. Business Process Automation Design
  2. Business Process Execution
  3. Business Process Integration
  4. Business Process Documentation
  5. Business Process Measurement
Second, we consider human related business processes:
  1. Strategy and Leadership
  2. Business Process Performance Training
  3. Business Process and Management Measurement
Each criteria above is measured on a 5 point scale, 5 being the best.  A score of 5 means the department has reached maximum efficiency, therefore the process cannot be improved, where a score of 2 would mean; business process improvement is needed.
This part of the business process assessment reveals business process performance problems, process management problems, performance improvement targets, measures against improvement efforts and assists to identify training needs.
