The business process itself is the core of the organization. It represents the overall tasks, activities and workflows that achieve the mission and core goals of the business. Well-defined and documented business processes help organizations achieve their goals faster, lower costs, reduce errors, and give employees more time to focus on higher-value tasks. To have effective business processes, organizations need to identify which tasks are most critical to the desired results, ensure accountability, streamline communication channels and set standards for how the business conducts its activities.
Review current business processes
It will be helpful for you to start by reviewing what you are currently doing in your business processes. You can do this by looking for redundancy and low-value activities, bringing in stakeholders and other key people who run the process on a day-to-day basis to evaluate what is working and what can be improved.
Start by defining the purpose of the business process
When creating a business process, it is important to do it with an end in mind. Organizations need to figure out what the goals are for specific business processes and work their way from the goals to the sub-processes and tasks.
