  11. 11. ESTABLISHING A BPE COE • Reporting Structure of the BPE COE: Initially BPE COE’s typically report to either the IT or the Business and evolve to a hybrid model over time. • COE Charter, Services and Operating Vision: Determine the scope of the COE and how it will operate within business units and across HUB • COE Resource Model: Define roles, skill-sets, and capacity required. Close on approach to source, develop, and manage BPE practitioners across Kemper and the BU’s • Common Methodology and Tools: Collaboratively determine relevant BPE methodologies and tools for use within HUB. Decide on governance model to ensure consistency • Implementation Approach and Plan: Evaluate potential implementation and phasing options and decide on approach, staging and high-level timing of standing up the COE. • Don’t Overburden or Complicate Process Work: Making process work too bureaucratic and overly complicated can derail a BPE program. • Modeling - avoid requiring as-is models in detail (task-level) and for every process • Project Work Plans - create project templates to accelerate project startup, and ensure consistency; however, avoid requiring burdensome amounts of detail and upkeep • Align with and Avoid Redundancy with Other Governance Efforts: Avoid overlaps with other established groups and governing bodies as this could lead to diminished accountability and conflicts of interest.
