Have you ever wondered how a whole business strings together? Actually, it is the business processes that literally “string” the business together. Hence for this reason is it process improvement that achieves end-to-end business improvement.
Unfortunately, numerous process improvement projects fail. The most common cause of this is that the Circle of Excellence or process improvement cycle is rarely followed through to the end. In fact a mighty forty five percent of failed projects simply stopped at documenting the current state processes. Hence the project never entered the analysis or improvement phase. As a result, the expected benefits were not realized.
Process improvement is a cycle of iterative corrections made in the business. First of all these corrections can be in response to a business environment change or also an internal corporate direction change. Because such scenarios happen continuously, process improvement is a continuous activity that cycles through the business.
“I specifically found the PRIME© (Process In a Managed Environment) methodology highly practical, logical and results driven. It is a methodology that can be applied immediately after learning.”
