Hands-on process management

Processes are often the basis for software implementation and should be modelled, optimised and agreed upon at an early stage in consultation with stakeholders from the competent department, IT and production. Business processes can be developed dynamically in joint, professionally facilitated workshops that bring together stakeholders and consultants and employ analogue, BPMN-based elements. Processes are clearly illustrated and demonstrated using hands-on BPMN material on tables or whiteboards with the set BP notation. This dynamic opportunity to shape process building blocks and the direct input from all stakeholders makes it easy to agree on and implement new ideas, changes and modifications to working processes. In turn, this fosters a better understanding and acceptance of those processes in the long term.

Practice-based scenarios

Process analysis with no or insufficient process documentation

Uncovering optimisation potential in the process environment requires a good understanding of existing business processes and how they interact. It often takes critical process analysis to realise that existing documentation for individual processes is already out of date or does not meet current requirements. The process can reveal that full and up-to-date process documentation is not being centrally managed, but is in fact available only in the heads of individual staff members. What should be done if this is the case?

Introducing workflow automation in line with the existing IT environment

The use of workflow engines can offer great benefits in many situations. At the same time, however, the challenge of integrating workflow systems into existing processes and established IT systems should not be underestimated. How do you automate only partially existing processes using workflow engines? How do you integrate more modern BPM technologies into system components that have changed over the years, without affecting the legacy IT environment?

Process documentation in line with existing IT governance

One issue that is often underestimated but is in fact extremely important in the BPM lifecycle is standardised process documentation. How do you ensure sufficient, comprehensive, end-to-end process documentation, in particular when implementing new processes or modifying existing ones using BPM technologies? For example ARIS EPC v. BPMN diagrams.

Academic partnership with universities

We work closely with higher education institutions on new research projects. A wide range of studies and dissertation projects around BPM are supervised and supported by our colleagues at it-economics GmbH.
