The objective of our consulting activities is to ensure the success of today’s flexible IT solutions and harvest latent gains by careful analyses of the starting situation as well as by methodical planning.
The implementation of business standard software like a HR management system is frequently accompanied by legal or business expectations which often cannot be fulfilled. An essential reason for this are the all too common and unfortunate ways of preparing for and introducing new software. Absolute requirements for the successful introduction of standard software are Project Management, Business Process Reengineering (BPR) and Business Process Management (BPM) methodologies, which are executed beforehand and concomitantly. A smooth meshing between the requirements and the software introduction is the key to success.
In this context, the procedure for business process optimizations are separated into the four phases:
- High level analysis of the as-is processes, including: the definition of the priorities and responsibilities.
- Diagnosis and fine analysis, including segmental review and objectives definition of the processes.
- Redesign of the processes, detailed draft of the target processes and implementation of the software workflows.
- Transitional phase on the target processes, with the introduction of the standard software.
Incrementally and methodologically derived to positively impact operations; a continuous change management is painlessly introduced that controls all phases of the BPM process as well as the introduction of the software. Our work is assisted by professional, web-based project platforms. Access to all change requests within the overall process and documents accompanying the project are centrally provided to the project participants on safe servers.
Consequently, BPM is a method to increase the effectiveness within an organization by reorganizing the business processes, resulting in efficient and slim administrative structures. Within this, the tasks are not simply distributed between departments or employees, but viewed as processes. In personnel management, personnel processes are transparently structured and process responsibilities are clearly defined.
Besides, a revision to the customer's perception takes place. The service character of an organization is increasingly moved into the center.
