Over-complicated workflows. Redundant information. Gigantic, terrifying, business processes!
It can all be so scary.
The latest episode of Omni's series, All Things BPM with Aaron and Mike: A Vlog Dedicated to Business Process Management, celebrates Halloween by getting spoooooooky with BPM.
Solution Consultant Aaron Carmody and Project Manager Michael Matter spend this episode talking about some of the biggest fears organizations have when it comes to Business Process Management (BPM).
So, grab some popcorn, sit back and get ready to confront your BPM fears.
The monster business process
Every company has business processes that are problematic; they can be cumbersome and slow or simply tedious manual processes that have grown organically over time.
But what about that one process that's grown for so long that it has turned into a monster? It's complex, it's eaten other processes, it's grown tentacles and you can't control it anymore.
No worries. Aaron and Mike can help you get that beast of a process under control using the power of business process management.
The process of taming a monster business process is two-fold:
- Document your existing process
- Break down the big process into smaller chunks
First of all, you have to know what the process looks like, no matter how terrifying it is. You can't tame a monster unless you know what you're dealing with and some organizations might be worried about bringing people onboard because they can't explain their processes. That's where a process flow — one of the tools of BPM — comes in. You can map the monster by creating a process flow that shows you all the steps in the big process.
It might seem like a daunting task but it's worth doing because once you map your process, you can start breaking it down into smaller pieces. Taking that big process a little bit at a time will help you drill down on problem areas, find pain points and adjust little inefficiencies will make a difference.
