Why invest in process management?

Understanding what is actually entailed in the delivery of products and services, not simply the ideal process when everything runs smoothly, is important for organisations that are hoping to improve efficiency and maximise their return on investment.

Process management provides an opportunity to delve more deeply into the issues faced throughout the production or service process that can require extra cost, time and resources to resolve. It is also a way for companies to show they care about the problems their employees face, helping to drive engagement and make individuals feel more empowered.

While many companies may appreciate these problems do arise, without bringing together the individuals who work on these projects day-to-day and asking them to quantify and record a realistic flow of work, these issues can go unnoticed and will add up to a loss in performance over time.

How does process management work?

The visualisation of processes and empowering multi-disciplinary teams around them is the key to process management programmes. Whilst the visualisation of the process is done physically in production and logistics companies, paper or digital methods are needed in administrative or service organisations.
Through a collaborative process of workshops, designed to gather information from all parties involved within a business, processes for the delivery of goods and services can be mapped out in full.
Using the Engage Process Suite, organisations are able to visualise their processes, highlighting areas where improvements can be made and ultimately helping to streamline and optimise their performance.
Individuals are also empowered by the fact their voices and concerns are being heard, ensuring there is lasting buy-in to make thoughtful, value-adding changes to the way processes operate.
