Don’t risk the dire consequences of your work processes becoming obsolete―discover a powerful model for constant, ongoing, enterprise-wide process evolution and optimization.
If you have a great product, but don’t have the operations in place to efficiently and effectively support it―production, manufacturing, sales, finance, human resources, etc.―you won’t succeed. Product innovation is seen as flashier and so gets far more attention, but you can create an enduring competitive advantage by revolutionizing business operations.
The problem is most attempts to improve business operations are reactive, sporadic, and siloed. Tony Saldanha and Filippo Passerini’s Dynamic Process Transformation model provides a living model for constant, ongoing process evolution and optimization.
The authors focus on maximizing three drivers of change. First, “open market rules”―each business process must be run as a separate business, instead of via monolithic mandates coming down from on high. Second, there must be “unified accountability”― outcomes must be clear and consistent across the company, instead of being siloed within departments. And third, there needs to be a “dynamic operating engine,” a methodology to convert the constantly changing business process goals into tactical day-to-day employee actions.
With numerous examples from leading companies, this book shows how to proactively keep business processes across the company from becoming obsolete and take advantage of a neglected key to success.
