How to Get Started

Often business processes and bureaucracy can be rationalized with a new business process model. To understand which processes to address first, consider this question: ‘What’s costing me more money now?’ Your answers will help you prioritize which changes will bring the biggest benefit to the bottom line. For example, the way data is managed between departments may be inefficient and expensive. Or perhaps you could save money by upgrading your hardware or moving applications to the cloud.
