BUSINESS PROCESS MODELING - DOCUMENTING THE "AS-IS"
 
 
Business process reengineering is a management approach aimed at making radical improvements by means of increasing the effectiveness of the processes that exist within and across organizations. The key is for businesses to look at their business processes from a ‘clean slate’ perspective and determine how they can best construct these processes to improve how they conduct business. It includes affecting change within in an organization in a major way, so ideally it will look at all aspects of the business. It often includes implementing new technology, but it will always include organizational change and often fosters the need for a new organizational design.

Advanced Strategies uses business process modeling ( with data flow diagramming) to describe, analyze, and document current business processes. We create with the business users an intuitive, non-technical model representing their perspective of how the business is conducted. Then a staged approach is taken to strip the model down to the bare essential processes to help the users ‘let go’ of
legacy practices and brainstorm and research for new opportunities and methods. The process model is then rebuilt to represent a desired, future state.

To affect the Organizational change, a five step approach is used to specify the business strategy and vision, identify the work needed to achieve the vision, configure the work into organization roles, develop the design, and plan the transformation. This methodology works whether re-designing an existing organization or building a brand new one.

Subject Overview: Business Process Modeling is a technique used for discovering and documenting an organization’s business processes. Process models are created with business teams, those doing and managing the work, to produce a blueprint of how business operations are conducted. These models form the basis for business process improvement, organizational design, and the design and implementation of technology systems.

Benefits of Process Models:

  • Creating an illustration quickly identifies obstacles and opportunities for improvement.
  • Enhances communication among team members.
  • Scaleable to accommodate analyzing both high level functions and detailed activities.
  • Using a diagram with supporting text allows an overview of both the process, as well as all appropriate supporting details.
  • Prevents analysis sessions from degenerating into expansive word-smithing exercises.
  • Ensures business operations align with strategy and technology aligns with business.
