Focus on the Business Process

on Tuesday, 01 January 2013. Posted in Blog


 A business process  is a set of recurring activities that produce an output/outcome that is of value to a customer not on the functions involved

–A transformation of an input into an output
–An integrative framework
There are two main types of processes: Operating Processes and Infrastructure Processes.
Each Operating and Infrastructure Process is composed of Sub-processes, Activities and Tasks.
Decomposing Processes into their Sub-processes, Activities and Tasks provides a full picture of the actions taken to complete the Processes’ outcomes.
Processes that add value to an organization are those that are well defined and well managed.
Some characteristics of a well managed process
Someone is responsible and held accountable for how well the process performs (process owner)
It has:
–well-defined boundaries (process scope)
–well-defined internal interfaces and responsibilities
–documented procedures, work tasks, and training requirements
–measurement and feedback controls close to the point where the activity is performed
–customer-related measurements and targets
–formalized change procedures
–known cycle time
In these times, companies are measured on how well they manage their processes
A Process Focus…

Keeps the focus on outcomes
Helps the organization understand inputs and how they become outputs

    I have been browsing online greater than 3 hours nowadays, but I
    by no means discovered any interesting article like yours.

    It is beautiful price enough for me. In my opinion, if all
    web owners and bloggers made good content as you probably did, the internet will likely be much more helpful than ever
