Author of Customer Focused Process Innovation: Linking Strategic Intent to Everyday Execution

For any organization to prosper, its leadership must drive bottom line results, expand the product offerings, and identify opportunities to better strategically position the organization. But all too often they look to trendy business practices or copy the competition. They don’t know the answers to basic questions: How do things really work and fit together in this organization? What does the customer really want from us? Who really does what and where do I fit in? How can I move the ball forward? Without these answers, the organization’s innovation capabilities are limited.

This is the first of a two-part look at a “Day in the Life” of a Business Analyst (BA). It’s broken into hours as a simple way to illustrate the myriad duties and skills that a BA needs to have, but in real life the process described below would take weeks, months, or possibly years, depending on the size of the effort. And, as every BA knows, there’s no such thing as a typical day – or even a standard job description. We’ll look here at the phases that every effort has, and tools that every BA needs.

Managing Enterprise Transformation in Government

“Culture does not change because we desire to change it. Culture changes when the organization is transformed; the culture reflects the realities of people working together every day.” Frances Hesselbein – President of the Frances Hesselbein Leadership Institute 

Effective use of a transformation framework, such as the one illustrated in Figure 1, is a hallmark of successful organizations and an essential means to achieving operational and technology environments that maximize institutional mission performance and outcomes. Among other things, this includes realizing cost savings through consolidation and reuse of shared services and elimination of antiquated and redundant mission operations, enhancing information sharing through data standardization and system integration, and optimizing service delivery through streamlining and normalization of business processes and mission operations.

Business Transformation & Process Management

Organizations are undergoing major transformations – to shift to digital business, become more customer-centric, and keep pace with regulatory changes. Any transformation impacts business processes, often requiring dramatic changes to how people work. Yet over 70% of transformation initiatives fail. Process management practitioners can change that and directly contribute to the success of their organization’s initiative by applying the latest process thinking, techniques and technologies to innovate and drive change.

How to Improve Customer Satisfaction with Government Services

“Government managers must learn from what is working in the private sector and apply these best practices to deliver services better, faster, and at lower cost.”   Barack Obama (upon releasing Executive Order 13571--Streamlining Service Delivery and Improving Customer Service)

Transforming Business Through Strategic Process Management

A recent Gartner poll of their client base found that 80% of public and private sector companies say they are undertaking major business transformation due to:

  • desire to shift to digital business
  • desire to become more customer/constituent-centric
  • perennial activities to keep pace with regulatory changes

More than 70% of these initiatives fail to deliver the desired outcome.

Process management practitioners can defy these odds by applying the latest process and change management thinking, techniques and technologies.
