Course description

Process Mapping & Systems Thinking

How to Streamline and Reengineer Business Processes

Process Mapping is the essential foundation for every approach to quality improvement (Six Sigma, Lean, RPI, reengineering) and workflow automation (ERP, BPMS, CRM). Orion's course, taught nationwide since 1994, is the de facto standard of the industry.

Why Process Mapping is Vital

An organization - any organization - is a collection of processes. These processes are the natural business activities you perform that produce value, serve customers and generate income. Managing these processes is the key to the success of your organization.

Unfortunately, most organizations - probably yours - are not set up to manage processes. Instead, they manage tasks. Think about it. Isn't your company organized around functions (the manufacturing department, the radiology department, the sales department, the customer service department)?

As a result, people tend to focus on - local - concerns instead of the "global" needs of process customers. Sub-processes evolve within departments without consideration of other functional areas. Layers of communication and management are created to ensure desired outcomes, thereby adding to costs and lengthening cycle and customer response times.  Inefficiency and waste become part of the system. They rob your organization of profits, productivity and its competitive advantage. Process mapping shows you the way out.
