Information Technology is slowly taking a grip of how organizations view their processes. Great article on how this WILL affect us all

Originally posted on Successful Workplace:

When it comes to operational improvement, organizations today are light years ahead of where they were two decades ago, but there’s no time to celebrate yesterday’s wins. They won’t immunize your organization against this decade’s march of ongoing progress. That’s because information technology — not just the Internet, but also mobile devices, “big data” for intensive data-crunching, and other computer hardware and software — will render even some of today’s most proficient business processes obsolete by the end of the decade.

The question for top management is no longer whether your organization’s processes need to be improved, but rather which ones, how much, and when.

I see three big opportunities:

1. Work across organizational and global boundaries. The Internet has changed our lives dramatically over the last decade. But organizations continue to use information technology to redesign work across organizational and global boundaries. Ford, for example…

Bernalillo County Awards PMCS Two New Contracts

This past month, both the Bernalillo County Information Technology and Purchasing Departments issued PMC Solutions, Inc. (PMCS) separate contracts in support of their Continuous Process Management Improvement efforts.  Through the continual use of PMCS’ proprietary process mapping software, inProcess, the County is expanding their Business Process Management Center (BPMC), and will be utilizing PMCS’ services to provide the following in these extended contracts:

  • Data gathering from the County’s policies, procedures, guidelines, directives, requirements, and other documentation
  • Designing, developing, and structuring that data into a workable process that will be entered it into the BPMC
  • Run all processes through a pre-approved review cycle for final edits, corrections, and issues identification, resulting in a finalized process that will be published to the BPMC
  • Provide inProcess™ Software User and Viewer training to both departments respectively

OBJECTIVES

  • The IT Department would like to improve processes that have a direct and indirect relationship with other County departments
  • The Purchasing Department would like for the full development of their procurement processes: Request for Proposals, Request for Bids, Small Purchases, Utilization of Existing Contracts, Indigent / Unclaimed Cremation, and Process and Vendor Performance Evaluation processes
  • Both departments are looking for PMCS to provide recommendations that will make their processes more efficient and less time-intensive, as well as provide information on best business practices on knowledge sharing using business process management as a tool

Over the past 2 years, PMCS and Bernalillo County have worked together to initiate a process-minded work environment at the County with the ultimate goal of generating cost-effective process improvements.  During that time, both PMCS and Bernalillo County process analysts have identified significant dollar saving for the County, and look forward to continuing these efforts.

Why is Price Waterhouse Coopers Buying Additional inProcess™ User Licenses?

“The current economic slowdown is driving businesses to evaluate existing delivery models against various cost-cutting strategies. In reviewing those traditional models, companies may find that a shared services center (SSC) is a more effective delivery option for their operational strategy — especially if they need to keep processes in-house.”

Companies that have already established an SSC are confronted with a number of challenges, both internal and external. PwC’s performance and process improvement professionals can help organizations with human resources, information technology, and finance and accounting functions. In combination with our project managers, PwC can help bring together the elements that drive efficiencies for your shared services center to meet these challenges.” www.pwc.com

Since 2008, PwC has been housing process information via PMCS’ proprietary process mapping tool inProcess in various service delivery centers (SDCs) located around the nation.   Rather than have work completed by PwC staff in their immediate office, PwC’s client service professionals now have the option of assigning work to an SDC for completion.   Staff in the SDC will follow a specific process for completing the work assigned, and for each type of work, there is a documented process for completion.  The process is being documented and tracked using inProcess.  Both PMCS and PwC benefit from this arrangement by standardizing process efficiency to a greater degree, all the while generating greater visibility for our product.
