Let’s consider the following all too common scenario –"As with many companies, the recent recession has forced cut back on costs. "The low hanging fruit" in termsof the most obvious cost cutting initiatives have already been taken. Consulting companies have been hired tohelp re-structure the enterprise and optimise therefore expediting business recovery. However, despite allefforts, business change for the better is still slow. What do we do next?"Why are there still massive opportunities to improve Although many in Western economies are in abusiness performance in companies that have been through state of denial, we are undergoing the greatestmany previous rounds of restructure and traditional reorganization in the business world since theoptimisation? Industrial Revolution. If you somehow haventAlthough now starting to change, most companies have not yet noticed it yet, there is a loud and clear wake-upappreciated that the business world is going through the greatest call in the air that can be heard everywhere. Itsreorganisation since the industrial revolution, therefore not called globalization, and its being brought to youchanging their approach to change, making the mistake that the by three billion new capitalists from China, India,approaches that served them so well in the last years will endure. and the former Soviet Union.The information age which started in the second half of the 20thCentury is quickly morphing into the customer age with massive No matter what industry you are in, no matter howimplications – opportunities for those who address but significant successful you are, its time to get ready for theissue for those who fail to react quickly enough. There are many world as it will be --a world where your customerscase studies which illustrate where this is happening. have new choices from a sea of suppliers from across the globe.Our Company StructuresMost companies have a functional structure with “division of --Peter Fingarlabour” fundamental that has changed little since the industrial Executive Partner, Greystone Grouprevolution. Functional silos grow and change over time to address Author of Extreme Competition: Innovation andthe demands placed on them within the company. The original the Great 21st Century Business Reformationconsequence of ‘labour division’ was a 240 times productivityimprovement. The fundamentals of company structure still exist largely unchanged today and have nowbecome the biggest reason why companies are underperforming or failing.98% of the workforce of most organisations have either no contact with the customer or have only a limitedunderstanding of the customer, their drivers and what he/she really needs. Under the existing division oflabour principles, why should they? They have to do a job within the company and either answer to or deliversomething to somebody else within the company – the concept of “the internal customer”. Over time thedemands on the functional silos change – this may be to improve quality, reduce defects or improve a serviceto what the internal customer states is required. Because 98% of the workforce are divorced from thecustomer base then the only measures of success that can be used is the requirements for improvement asdefined internally. Have you got your FREE Copy yet?Overlay the more, cheaper, faster, better quality demands and the focus is firmly fixed on “inside-out”thinking looking at process change in the traditional domain. Companies traditionally have tried to combat “In Search Of BPM Excellence : Straight from the thought leaders (2006)”this by using “voice of the customer” and other techniques which leave only very limited insight – the
  2. 2. problem for the 98% of us focussing on the internal customer we simply are just not aware what is missing!!Is this a problem? Well, simply – YES. Because of the focus on what we are doing and trying to deliver orplease the people we are answerable to – the internal customer then we are doing lots of things that do notcontribute to what the customer – ie the person who pays for the goods and services - really needs. That’s Enterprise BPMinefficiency that none of the existing Enterprise Performance Improvement methodologies have been able to Workshopidentify or drive out. The vast majority of companies are carrying out a huge amount of work that is simply » Ghana » Polandnot contributing to what the customer needs adding complexity, cost and ultimately service. » France » Russia » Denmark » Switzerland » Belgium » South AfricaChange in Customer BehaviourThe customer base whether it be the corporate or the individual consumer now has access to choice atunprecedented levels. We can obtain information or advice on almost anything at the press of a button andwhereas we used to be restricted to either what or where we buy, the world has become a globalsupermarket for pretty well every product or service available. Economic globalisation has compounded theproblem as trade barriers between nations and regions are effectively dismantled. In some industries supplyeffectively exceeds demand with the only apparent differentiator being price. The view that customer focusshould be packing in as much of what a customer wants into a product/service without killing the cost base isfortunately a complete fallacy. The companies who align their structures, processes and capabilitymost closely to what the customer actually needs (not “wants” – discussed later) are likely to sellmore than their competitors. Customers are becoming more informed about alternative options. They aremore likely to change allegiance. They are more likely to rebel if they don’t get what they perceive theywant/need. This applies to all industries whether we are selling insurance products or building submarines.Pace of Change in Producing New CapabilityThe pace of change and accelerated technology advances means new products/services or variants are beingproduced increasingly quicker as most companies try to compete in this new but constantly evolvinglandscape. We observe this every day and its placing a huge pressure on our organisations. This increasedcapability/reduced price and reduced time to market is now a factor in virtually every one of our industries.We have to compete, because if we don’t then the customer base will quickly find those organisations thatcan and they will stop buying. Most companies address this by using traditional techniques to producebetter/cheaper/faster without realising there are huge opportunities sitting “under their nose” if only theycould look at their business through a different “set of glasses”.And to the Programme? The enterprises are exploring modular architecture to isolate their business processes from their applications, which gives them the flexibility to add, upgrade or replace applications in their information technology environment without redefining all of their process interfaces. The business process management (BPM) market at $1.0 billion in 2005 is expected to more than triple to $3.8 billion by 2012. The services oriented architecture (SOA) market at $450 million in 2005 is expected to grow rapidly through 2012, reaching $3.2 billion.One of the most challenging issues in BPM is not the question of "If" it is the question of "How." This two-dayprogram will focus on how to do design and implement efficient and effective business processes, to moreeffectively support the way our enterprises are adapting.Learn from the lessons from decades of real experience with real (and successful) BPM initiatives for takingBPM from promise to practice.
