Video Transcription - Process Change

Thanks for joining me today in the Process Session for the 7 Enablers of BPM.

So we’ve spoken about Process Architecture – where do you processes live? We’ve talked about how we select the critical few processes and put some measures against them so that we know how they are performing. We’ve talked about Process Governance – what is the role of the process owner and how does that impact on what we do in the process improvement cycle?

Today we are talking about Process Change

Process Change

So Process Change is central to the 7Enablers of BPM. It is key that we understand this, and we embed it. We purposefully embed change into the continuous improvement lifecycle so that we have maximise the benefit through process change management. If we don’t do that, we fail to deliver what we intended.

So the Process Owners have their Process Architecture, they define some key measures, and out of that (depending on the circumstances – external or internal to the organisation) they drive change for business improvement. We kick off the process improvement lifecycle looking at the AS IS (may or may not), we define a TO BE (nearly always), and then come up with a list of this TO DO to make that change successful. Often we forget to embed change management into this process. We then have a high risk of failure and not succeeding of the goals we set out with. 

We always want to go a ‘BBTU – Business Better than Usual’. Sometimes we fail, sometimes we succeed.  In order to maximise successes, we ensure that we plan for change and embed a change model into the continual improvement cycle (Kotter’s 8 Steps). We avoid this ‘Implementation Chasm’ by doing so. Kotter’s 8 Step program is really broken down into 3 phrases. The first phase is creating a climate for change –developing a sense of urgency and ensuring that the organisation is ready for that change you are going to implement through the processes that are going to impact on the people & systems aligned to that processes.  The second is making sure the organisation is engaged and comes along in that model. The third is embedding that process change management so we achieve the change.

Next time we talk about the process mindset – and we will want to  understand how we engage people to change their thinking, so when they come to their workplace every day, they are looking for ways to improve the process.

Leonardo wins 2019 Red Hat Hackathon - Customer Experience with OpenSource

      We're thrilled to share with you that Leonardo has won 2019 Red Hat Hackathon 'ReBoot Customer Experience with Open Source'. Early on Friday morning ( 5am AEDT 13th December 2019),  Leonardo awarded first place from a field that included 320 participants from across the globe.  The Hackathon's brief was to reinvent customer experience using Open Source. Providing an outstanding customer experience that customers actually love is especially challenging in more traditional industries like banking, insurance, telecommunication, public sector/government, healthcare, manufacturing, or transportation. These markets offer great opportunities for change and disruption as has been shown by many examples such as Uber disrupting transportation, Twilio disrupting telcos and Stripe or Transferwise disrupting banking.  We want you to be the next disrupter who creates a customer experience that users actually love.  An Open Source solution - ACE  Airline Customer Experience Our project is an application using a Red Hat Process Automation Manager process-as-microservice developed for "ACE Airlines", our fictional client (see video above for the demo). It communicates personalised, event-driven (gate change, delay, etc.) messages to passengers in the language of their choice, using their preferred communications type (SMS, push notification, email).
