Process improvement presupposes that a business knows what its processes are and has chosen them deliberately. However most businesses start small and grow organically with their processes patched together to meet whatever the need was at the time. This inevitably leads to inefficiency, duplication a certain amount of chaos and often to a silo mentality, none of which is good for business and simply becomes an uncalculated cost of failure and a restraint on growth. Worst still perhaps it also leads to ineffective controls which raises business risk levels to often hidden unacceptable levels exposing the organisation to accusations of fraud, illegality and damage to brand reputation.
It can however be quiet simple to sort out with the right assistance.
Process improvement does not have to be complex or bureaucratic. It does not need to involve large investments in specialist software or personnel. It does require a sensible, pragmatic approach to identifying, documenting and reviewing an organisation’s processes in light of the organisations business needs.
