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.
||JOINT DEVELOPMENT APPROACH (JDA) FACILITATION
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.
Benefits of JDA:
JDA is beneficial whenever consensus is required among a variety of participants. JDA has been effectively used for:
- The work products reflect optimized decisions, not compromised decisions
- The work products produced are of a higher quality in comparison to the time invested
- There are fewer implementation and production surprises
- Participants have buy-in and ownership of the solution
- A common vocabulary and understanding emerges
- “Red tape” and logistical delays are reduced
- Gathering and Analyzing Business Requirements
- Defining and Initiating Projects
- Modeling business processes, objects, or events
- Strategic Planning
- Developing Marketing Plans
- Product Development
Students of Advanced Strategies’ JDA Facilitation Course will return to work with the skills necessary to plan and facilitate moderately complex group sessions using an instrumented and structured approach.
Who Should Attend:
