In order to survive, organisations must become lean, flexible, innovative and customer-driven. To do this, most companies need to analyse and redesign core business processes. They must abandon old ideas about how organisations should be managed and rethink how to do things faster, better, cheaper — or whether to do them at all.
Business process analysis and design, also called business process innovation, can tremendously improve an organisation’s productivity, profitability, responsiveness and customer satisfaction. In pace-setting organisations, fast, efficient processes have become a primary vehicle for competitive performance.
