IN THIS SUMMARY
Most aspects of business equate to a process. However, those processes are frequently not as efficient or effective as they could be. Business process improvement or BPI can help companies demonstrate greater customer responsiveness, increase employee productivity, and become more competitive in the market. In The Power of Business Process Improvement, Susan Page describes a ten step approach to BPI that is pragmatic and focused on ease of use. To alert management about improved business processes, the author also recommends developing an executive summary document with six sections: project focus, goals, summary, key findings, deliverables, and appendix.
