Advanced Process Management Principles - Key to Sustainability

What do leaders want? In a word – RESULTS! And that is precisely what process management can deliver when practiced at the enterprise level.

BPM is not just about technology. It is first and foremost about improving organizational performance. Major initiatives will only be optimized if senior leaders are engaged in applying process management principles and practices at the enterprise level. To make this happen, as many practitioners have learned, requires transforming traditional thought models and behaviors to look at the value that the business creates for customers systemically. This is easier said than done.

This is an advanced course and will be of most value to those participants who have a strong base of practical experience. This interactive workshop presents essential principles from a non-technical perspective with a focus on management behavior.

The session will address specific business practices needed to optimize results in the definition, analysis, design and implementation of process improvements as well as for ongoing process management. It will examine what is needed to create executive engagement and enthusiasm, and illustrate what actions are needed by the senior team to leverage organizational capability through business process thinking.
