The Secret of Doing More with Less!

Every department experiences constant low level change. This change is normally a manual response to unmet automated support requirements associated with operational evolution. But, it affects, rules, policies, procedures, activity, workflow, performance, and quality. This impact increases over time as the operational change builds and effectiveness and efficiency become concerns. This discussion will address ways to find this work and put processes in place to optimize the operation and sustain an optimal level of performance.

Where is your Organization on the Journey to Becoming Process Based?

As more organizations understand and realize the benefit of managing processes, the next step is to manage the enterprise from a process perspective. Working with many organizations, Process Strategy Group was instrumental in developing an Implementation Roadmap and Assessment Framework to guide an organization through the journey to becoming a process based organization. A high level review of the Implementation Roadmap and Assessment will be presented, and what organizations need to consider in their implementation.

Process Governance and Ownership

We have been trying for a long time to implement sound process governance and ownership model to often be disappointed with the results. It is time for us to accept that the perfect model proposes is not working and that we need to change our approach to be successful. This is becoming even more important now that collaborative technologies are in the hand of the end users and that they can influence significant process change at a click of a mouse. In this presentation I will discuss the flaw of our traditional thinking and present a framework that will allow you to define a successful approach for your organization.

Lean Beyond Manufacturing

A discussion about how the concept of Lean (or the Toyota Production System) can be utilized beyond the manufacturing floor – across the backoffice functions of Finance and Accounting, IT, HR and Procurement. Toyota’s use of Lean principles for the past 60 years has continued to provide them a competitive advantage – see how these same principles can be applied to backoffice operations to eliminate waste/muda across the enterprise.

Agile business operations in a time of industry volatility

The events of the second half of 2008, where established financial institutions vanished overnight, have sent ripples through the entire fabric of the world’s economy. This means that nimble new competitors seize both global and regional market opportunities that previously have been taken for granted by the established multinationals. Unfortunately, the IT organization, responsible for facilitating changes demanded by the business, often falls short of being able to do just that. A Business Operations Platform enables business professionals to incrementally refine process models, which in turn drive implementation refinements by IT. Such process refinement iterations introduce a robust and low-risk approach for business process improvement: they allow organizations to realize value in short order while continuously monitoring for problems and fixing them. Properly implemented, the BOP’s shared process model results in true "closed loop" process improvement practice, which enables the extended team of business and IT to collaboratively and incrementally define, design, develop and deploy business processes, to meet business demands.

Sustainable SOA Solution Development Lifecycle

ROI on SOA initiatives has been elusive for companies. The key challenge being that the realization of ROI happens very late in the lifecycle of what is usually a long-term initiative. Stakeholders lose faith in the approach, leading to distrust between business and IT culminating in a compromised SOA Solution. The session will describe successful and tested SOA solution Development Lifecycle methodology of achieving that ROI early on, keeping it sustainable and still preserving the tenets of SOA.

Thinking Broadly: Integrating Business Architecture into an Organization

An organization’s strategic plans are only as good as their realization. A main driver behind doing Business Architecture is to ensure alignment, but how does that alignment get realized. The speaker discusses some shortfalls in today’s thinking and rise of business specifications, which is the critical link between business motivations and operational behavior.
