Business Process Improvement (BPI)

Why Attend

You’ve already implemented a process control system on your production
processes but you’re not sure you’re measuring everything you should, or getting
as much as you could from the data. Maybe you need to put a control system in
place, but you’re not sure what to measure?

If you measure the right parameters in the right way, you’ll soon have a thorough understanding
of your processes and what you need to do to improve them. What’s more, your improvements
will be data driven so you’ll be confident that you’re focusing on the right thing. Once you’ve
made those improvements, the measurements you’ve implemented will tell you how much
impact they’re having.

This course provides an overall understanding of how to improve processes. Everything everyone does
within an organization is part of a process. So invariably if you want to improve what the organization
does, then you have to focus on improving the process. By putting your emphasis on the process, you
avoid the typical trap that so many business leaders seem to fall prey to – looking to cut costs, they
focus on trimming payrolls or pushing people to do more with less. This short-sided approach may get a
brief bump in performance. However, in the long-run you end up increasing costs, reducing value to the
customer, and making it harder for the company to compete.
