In their quest to compete in an ever-changing business climate, today’s organizations must look well beyond traditional management tools for sustainable competitive advantage. Innovative approaches to operations demand a solid foundation, without which attempts to build anything worthwhile ‘above ground’ are futile. A strong wind – a competitive threat, a new regulation, a down market – can take the whole structure down in an instant. Attempts at operational excellence can be quickly buried in the rubble. By providing a systematic means to prioritize, assess and improve operations, Business Process Management (BPM) is an emerging discipline that secures the organization’s foundation; productivity, efficiency, agility, quality, compliance and employee engagement become the bricks and mortar that result. In this engaging presentation, Rob Berg, director of Perr&Knight’s Insurance Technology Group presents an easily accessible framework using an innovative suite of tools that turn BPM theory into practice – arming you with critical insights that, when properly applied, support your own quest for sustainable competitive advantage.
