​​​​​​​​​​​​​Improve Your Business Operations!


Overview

Many organizations experience operational challenges when rolling out new technologies or services. Organizations must constantly adapt to rapidly changing business requirements and increasing cost pressure. They need to optimize their business processes to allocate scarce resources more efficiently. In today's businesses, many processes are complex, accurate data for optimization efforts is sometimes lacking, and potential investments can be highly risky.


In an era of continuous technological advancements, the available tools in solving business problems and handling huge amounts of data are constantly increasing. Problems considered impossible only a few years ago are now easily solved on a laptop computer. Even though the fundamentals of mathematics and statistics do not change, the advancement of research in the field and the availability of sophisticated computer software have changed the way we approach problems. These challenges can also affect the quality of existing services before you even realize a problem exists. Don't let operations trouble lead to poor service quality and low customer satisfaction. 


Visionary People's Business Process Engineering and Optimization teams help nonprofit, private and public institutions better understand and improve business operations. We focus on challenges across provisioning, engineering, performance, technology evolution, and customer service. So we can help you determine what works, what doesn't and what changes are needed to make your operations run smoothly. Optimizing business operations will help pave the way to higher-quality services, improved customer satisfaction and increased efficiency. Start working your way there today.

Methodologies and Tools
Our Business Process Engineering approach includes:

  • Understanding the Present Mode of Operation (PMO). We'll assemble an experienced team to analyze your current processes, technologies and systems. The result will be creation of a detailed PMO business process model showing interrelationships and dependencies between people, systems, and processes. This will serve as the baseline that proposed changes and actual implementations are evaluated against.
  • Determining the Future Mode of Operation (FMO). We'll work with you to build an advisory team to define an FMO business process model based on your business objectives and our combined knowledge of industry best practices.
  • Gap Analysis and Transition Plan. A gap analysis of needed business process improvements and transition to the FMO plan will be developed. You'll gain an understanding of the business strategy, timing, personnel, and system/process evolution that will take place.
  • Implementation. By trial and deploying new system or operational process improvements, we'll help you determine whether the intended results will be achieved. If additional system and operational process improvements need to be made, we'll repeat the appropriate PMO, FMO, Gap Analysis and Transition Planning steps as necessary.

Business Process Optimization
Today’s complex business environment requires rapid response to ever-changing requirements and financial pressures. However, fragmented, sub-optimized and non-integrated processes drain an enterprise’s productivity and diminish responsiveness to changing markets, customers, and partners.

It is crucial to manage internal employee processes and workflows so that day-to-day activities are efficient and productive, and that the data employees need to succeed is available and accessible.

Business processes are fundamental to every company’s operational performance. Having the proper technology in place can help bring success, but having optimized business processes and practices are what delivers true value. Recognizing which processes need fine-tuning or wholesale change requires understanding the current performance level of a process, identifying where it should be, and then establishing a path for achieving the desired, optimized outcome.

Business Process Management
Business Process Management (BPM) is a systematic approach to making an organization's workflow more effective, more efficient and more capable of adapting to an ever-changing environment. A business process is an activity or set of activities that will accomplish a specific organizational goal. 


The goal of BPM is to reduce human error and miscommunication and focus stakeholders on the requirements of their roles. BPM is a subset of infrastructure management, an administrative area concerned with maintaining and optimizing an organization's equipment and core operations.

BPM is often a point of connection within a company between the line-of-business (LOB) and the IT department. Business Process Execution Language (BPEL) and Business Process Management Notation (BPMN) were both created to facilitate communication between IT and the LOB. Both languages are easy to read and learn, so that business people can quickly learn to use them and design processes. Both BPEL and BPMN adhere to the basic rules of programming, so that processes designed in either language are easy for developers to translate into hard code.

There are three different kinds of BPM frameworks available in the market today. Horizontal frameworks deal with design and development of business processes and are generally focused on technology and reuse. Vertical BPM frameworks focus on a specific set of coordinated tasks and have pre-built templates that can be readily configured and deployed. Full-service BPM suites have five basic components:

  • Process discovery and project scoping
  • Process modeling and design
  • Business rules engine
  • Workflow engine
  • Simulation and testing


While on-premise Business Process Management (BPM) has been the norm for most enterprises, advances in cloud computing have lead to increased interest in on-demand, software as a service (SaaS) offerings.

Business Process Reengineering
Business process reengineering (BPR) is the analysis and redesign of workflows within and between enterprises in order to optimize end-to-end processes and automate non-value-added tasks. BPR involves the radical redesign of core business processes to achieve dramatic improvements in productivity, cycle times and quality. In Business Process Reengineering, companies start with a blank sheet of paper and rethink existing processes to deliver more value to the customer. They typically adopt a new value system that places increased emphasis on customer needs. Companies reduce organizational layers and eliminate unproductive activities in two key areas. First, they redesign functional organizations into cross-functional teams. Second, they use technology to improve data dissemination and decision making.

How Business Process Reengineering works:
Business Process Reengineering is a dramatic change initiative that contains five major steps. Managers should:

  • Refocus company values on customer needs
  • Redesign core processes, often using information technology to enable improvements
  • Reorganize a business into cross-functional teams with end-to-end responsibility for a process
  • Rethink basic organizational and people issues
  • Improve business processes across the organization


Companies use Business Process Reengineering to:
Companies use Business Process Reengineering to improve performance substantially on key processes that impact customers. Business Process Reengineering can:

  • Reduce costs and cycle time. Business Process Reengineering reduces costs and cycle times by eliminating unproductive activities and the employees who perform them. Reorganization by teams decreases the need for management layers, accelerates information flows, and eliminates the errors and rework caused by multiple handoffs.
  • Improve quality. Business Process Reengineering improves quality by reducing the fragmentation of work and establishing clear ownership of processes. Workers gain responsibility for their output and can measure their performance based on prompt feedback.


Supply Chain Optimization

Business Activity Monitoring
Business Activity Monitoring (BAM), also called Business Activity Management, describes the processes and technologies that enhance situation awareness and enable analysis of critical business performance indicators based on real-time data. BAM is used to improve the speed and effectiveness of business operations by keeping track of what is happening and making issues visible quickly. The BAM concept can be implemented through many different kinds of software tools; those aimed solely at BAM are called BAM platform products. The BAM paradigm can be used to evaluate external as well as internal factors.

Three main steps compose effective implementation of BAM:

  • First, relevant data is gathered in an efficient and timely manner and in sufficient quantities to provide meaningful results.
  • Second, the data is processed to identify and categorize factors relevant to specific concerns.
  • Finally, the data is analyzed and the results displayed in a clear, user-friendly interface so personnel can take appropriate actions.
