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.

10 Common Problems in Container Adoption - And How to Fix It

The Compelling Origins of Containers A number of years ago, it become clear that the rise of container platforms was more than just a passing technology trend.  A genuine technology shift was taking place that would undoubtedly change the IT industry forever. Early indicators were everywhere.  Investment by the largest software industry giants was significant, as was their marketing positioning.  Pivotal and IBM were aggressive with Cloud Foundry and Blue Mix.  Red Hat was progressive with Openshift and receiving industry praise.  Docker Inc stormed onto the scene.  Then Google started the Kubernetes opensource project with immediate impact. Locally, there were also strong indicators.  MeetUp groups were started and quickly became well-attended - especially the Docker meetups based in Australia.  In the early days, the meetings were sold-out, and eager attendees weren't able to secure a spot.   After a humble start, the Kubernetes MeetUp was became very popular and continues to be so to this day. There was something brewing, and everyone wanted to be a part of it.
