Guest Keynote: Repositioning BPM for Sustainable Success

Monday, 07 March 2011
10:45-11:30

For an enterprise to be successful it must excel in three dimensions of performance: value, resources and management. BPM can and should play a prominent role in all three dimensions, but that has not been the case in most organizations taking the BPM journey. We’ll tell you the implications for your BPM program, including change management, and give you examples of the successes and failures we’ve seen in leveraging BPM for transformation at an enterprise level.

From Process Analysis to Process Design: A Proven Approach

Monday, 07 March 2011
16:45-17:45

There are a wealth of tools and techniques for process analysis and process design but there are few that assist in making the transition from analysis to design. This session will demonstrate a proven approach for making the transition from analysis to design and avoiding common process improvement pitfalls:

  • Lack of agreement on where and how the process is “broken” and the significance
  • Fixing only what’s broken (and missing other improvement opportunities)
  • Not knowing the availability, impact and limitations of potential breakthrough ideas

  • Reframing the request into performance terms
  • Scoping the affected dimensions: value, resources, management
  • Helping clients see their solution in terms of likelihood of success
