Keeping it Real!


Wonderful way of looking at it :-D

1. Understanding the impact of an ever changing business environment on your process activities enables a company to react quickly.

2. Clearly defining accountabilities and responsibilities eliminates duplication of effort and cuts down on the bureaucracy and politics involved with change.

3. Easier to identify performance measures and provide a line of sight between organization, process and employee performance goals.

4. Strategies are accomplished through processes. Without proper management, strategies will take longer to achieve.
