BUSINESS PROCESS MAPPING VS. BUSINESS PROCESS ENGINEERING

It is time for your company to adopt a new ERP system. Before you are ready to start the implementation phase, there are two processes that should be conducted: Business Process Mapping and Business Process Re-engineering. Below you will find the background of these processes, why they are performed, and the benefits of performing them.

Why is Business Process Mapping performed?

Business Process Mapping is a framework used to create visual representations of business processes.  Business process maps reveal the relationship between operational steps and inputs to produce an end-product or service.

These documents are focused on what a business does, why it operates in that way, what the standard is for success, who is responsible, and when and where different steps will occur.  The main purpose of business process mapping is to promote transparency and allow organizations to improve upon their current practices by creating a clear, detailed visual representation of workflows.

Why is Business Process Re-engineering performed?

There are many definitions out there, but Bain & Company has produced some great work on this subject- BPR involves the radical redesign of core business processes to achieve dramatic improvements in productivity, cycle times and quality. In Business Process Reengineering, companies rethink existing processes to deliver more value to the customer. They typically adopt a new value system that places increased emphasis on customer needs. Companies reduce organizational layers and eliminate unproductive activities in two key areas.

  • Redesign functional organizations into cross-functional teams.
  • Use technology to improve data dissemination and decision making.

What are the benefits of Business Process Mapping and Business Process Re-engineering?

  • Helps with ERP system selection
  • Foundation for decision making, organizational change management, executive buy-in, and training strategy.
  • Measures progress and results after go-live.
