Automating Workflows: 3 Misconceptions To Avoid

By BP Logix on Jun 25, 2018 11:43:22 AM

automating-workflows

There may be some reluctance on the part of executives and stakeholders to implement workflow software for automating workflows within their organizations. That reluctance may be the result of either, 1) Existing habits and behaviors that are considered to be adequate, or 2) Fear. The former is actually more challenging to overcome from both an IT and business perspective, while the latter can often be addressed when an organization realizes how its business can become better, much better. It’s paradoxical to realize, too that fear is often what encourages people to hold on to old habits, thereby creating the mindset of, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." Smart businesses are not fooled by that adage, however.

BPM Implementation Success Key To The Bottom Line

By BP Logix on Aug 25, 2017 3:37:46 PM

We have long been advocates of BPM implementation as part of an overall approach to creating smarter and more efficient business operations. Our customers agree— and tend to frame that more succinctly: they seek methods and tools to help them improve profitability and business agility.

It also goes without saying that if BPM implementation cannot provide demonstrable benefits to the bottom line, it has no place within a forward-looking enterprise. Not everyone in every organization, however, obsesses about cost savings though. IT, for example, may just want to get things done faster — or with fewer obstacles. Purchasing might want to ensure faster sign-offs and approvals on requisitions and invoices. And HR certainly wants the employee onboarding process to work as smoothly and effortlessly as possible.

Understanding Your BPM and Workflow Needs

It is important to assess the needs of your organization to determine whether or not business process management software (BPM software) is applicable to what you are doing. The process of analyzing your workflow efficiency needs will provide a deeper recognition of what your company needs to be more successful. Having a solid grasp of that will enable you to give more thoughtful consideration to both the BPM tools and solutions that work for you — and will help you avoid the trap that a BPM solution in and of itself can make you faster, better organized and more profitable. (Since we all are occasionally all too eager to map our needs to what others tell us they can provide)

The Project, Step 3: Process Pat Learns What’s Important to His Organization

By BP Logix on Jun 24, 2016 8:38:34 AM

I have been in “learning mode” in recent months. Over the course of numerous meetings and strategy sessions, I have spoken with team leaders and executives across my company to secure approvals and obtain executive buy-in. Those were important steps in moving forward with implementing our BPM and workflow solution. Those conversations have enlightened me about critical changes that need to take place in order to make our company more efficient— and I feel validated that many of these issues can be solved by deploying workflows and applying best practices.

The Project, Step 2: Process Pat Seeks Executive Champions

By BP Logix on Jun 16, 2016 4:24:10 PM

All organizations operate according to a certain level of “group think“. That's not necessarily a bad thing because we all want employees focused on the same goals and adhering to similar work styles. As much as we don't want to admit to any amount of “Orwellianism” in our companies, while all of our employees at my company are equal, some are more equal than others. Those who are not equal are who we call ‘the executives.’

By BP Logix on Dec 15, 2015 8:20:13 PM

Time can be both the greatest asset and, potentially, biggest enemy, of any business. Failing to meet a schedule or not delivering on expectations can be disastrous. Having insight into your organization’s cadences and applying that information to ‘predict and prepare’ is one of the most important advantages any company can have.
