Sustaining Operational Excellence

The Evolving Role of the Process Manager

Most organizations achieve some measure of success by improving or innovating business processes; few are able to sustain the competitive edge.

Why?  Because the walls of our organizations undermine cross-functional collaboration and innovation.  In the 21st Century, technology has exponentially increased the speed of interactions.  It has not, however, eliminated the silos in our organizations.  As companies contemplate CX transformations, intelligent automation and new self-service options, it is cross-functional business processes that will deliver ROI from these advances.  And, it is the Process Manager who will sustain that ROI.

This seminar addresses the traditional and emerging challenges of enterprise process management. It delivers skills and techniques you need to make technology-driven process excellence a sustainable asset.
