Resources in Organizational Performance

Our focus on Organization Performance (OP) will be on the alignment of strategies, processes, performers, measures, technologies and management to achieve and sustain outstanding levels of performance of the entire enterprise.

Our belief is that organizational performance is achievable only when an organization has defined the major elements that affect performance and aligned them (which often means redesigning them) to support strategies and goals.

Just as often the task of alignment also means ridding the organization of things (practices, policies, organization structures) that impede organizational performance.

Using Scorecards to Manage Process Effectiveness

Time: 2:15 September-22-2005 The creators of the Balanced Scorecard, David Norton and Robert Kaplan, indicated that "What gets measured gets done" and "What you measure is what you get".  Yet, most organizations have no real process intelligence due to process fragmentation and poor metrics.   What process data they are able to obtain often times has no relationship to their business objectives.  Scorecards offer managers a tool to measure the impact and contribution of business processes in the achievement of identified business objectives.

How Performance Management Powered by Service-Oriented Architecture Drives Process Improvements and Innovation

Today's climate requires companies to be responsive...responsive to customers, suppliers, the market, and competitive threats. But responding to market pressures is difficult.  Especially if the state of the business is in disarray. Or, even worse, unknown. Managing performance helps clients not only to understand clearly the state of the business today, but also to anticipate customer demand, competitor's moves, and market dynamics. It provides tools to improve operations and the decision-making power to innovate to stay competitive.

The Changing Face of FBI IT

Just as the FBI mission has evolved dramatically since 9/11/01, so has the Information Technology landscape (IT). The FBI is transforming IT systems by undertaking actions to restructure, reorganize, and transform technologies to further support counterterrorism, intelligence, law enforcement, and administrative missions. Business Process Management is vital to the FBI’s continued transformation and evolution. It is the “roadmap” that defines, dissects, and delivers elements of the FBI’s Service-Oriented Architecture, and is the adhesive that makes it hold together. The FBI’s approach to Business Process Management uses both Business Process Reengineering (BPR) and Business Process Improvement (BPI). BPR provides the FBI with a cross-functional view of processes and uses specific redesign and creative thinking techniques to identify and overcome outmoded beliefs and assumptions. It also addresses the organizational change aspects of process redesign. BPI supports the detailed analysis of existing process value and performance to identify opportunities for improvement. Before entering into a path for BPR and BPI, the FBI must first compare current business needs to the current technological capabilities and processes available. Best Practices and customer perspectives are integrated into technology development processes to more accurately design a compelling picture of future FBI business practices.
