Discovering a Process Architecture
Presented by: Roger Tregear
Every organization has a process architecture; for many it has not been discovered and documented. Without such discovery, the process architecture cannot be the powerful management tool it should be.
A process architecture is a hierarchical model of the business processes of an organization. Usually created, initially at least, to include the two or three highest levels, the process architecture provides a powerful visualization and management tool. It is the keystone artefact of process-based management.
Many organizations avoid discovering and documenting their process architecture because it seems complicated and time-consuming. It doesn’t have to be like that.
This presentation uses several very different case studies to show how it can be done, if not easily, then at least more simply, effectively, and quickly.
- The critical value of a process architecture
- How to discover a process architecture
- Common errors & countermeasures in process architecture discovery
