Process Modelling for Business Success


With margins thinner than the crusts of its pizzas, a pizza chain restaurant operates in a fiercely competitive and demanding market. There are many alternatives for the customers’ disposable income. Inevitable and escalating cost pressures impact a wide range of business inputs. Customer tastes are notoriously fickle. Staff enthusiasm is difficult to shape and maintain through rapidly varying demand cycles. This is a tight, demanding, sometimes fragile, always brittle, supply chain that demands deep understanding, superior planning, and faultless execution to deliver consistent success. And you thought it was just a pizza!

Success for any business comes from a detailed understanding of the hierarchy of business processes that consume inputs, use resources, create value, and deliver customer service, and an unrelenting focus of the measurement and improvement of those processes.

It is mission critical for any organisation to understand and manage its business processes. Process modelling is crucial to successful business outcomes - the bigger your business, the more excellence is required in your process modelling.

Most organizations are under pressure to reduce costs, enhance products and services, and be more attentive to customers. Process-based management offers a practical solution by refocusing on how value is delivered.

Marco Fargnoli will be presenting  this case study ‘Pizzas for Africa’ at the 2015 Building Business Capability Conference in Sydney this August.  You’ll never again look at that box of pizza in the same way. Beyond the pizza, you will also see a whole new way to look at your own organization.

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).
