Process improvement is everybody’s business. Where do you fit in?

Business user

Business users have a single view to follow work assigned to them, to track work that they care about, or to kick off new work. They can complete a step within a process by filling out a very simple form or they can choose to reject that budget request, and they can comment upon and even reassign the work to ensure it gets done on time and at the level they expect. Business users can view their team’s process activity, make com-ments and ask for help—and they can do all this without the need to call on IT for assistance.

Project manager

Project managers can configure and run simple processes for their groups without IT involvement. They can get the status of their team’s work at a glance, without sending emails or making phone calls. Project managers now have confidence that their teams won’t miss deadlines, with built-in support for due date sand notifications.

Business analyst

Business analysts can blueprint all processes in a single system and easily share the blueprints with their team. They can now use an interactive stream to see a summary of process changes, view feedback from others, and make comments. Business analysts can browse and use process templates based on industry and process best practices and they can feel confident that every individual who depends on a particular process is instantly informed of any changes that might be made.

Process Center of Excellence (COE) leader

Process COE leaders have insight into processes that in the past were manual and can better identify process problem areas. They can ensure that all the process knowledge within the organization gets stored and managed in a single repository in a standardized way—it will never again be out-of-date. Process COE leaders can easily communicate best practices and process strategy internally, while learning from the larger public community and leveraging prebuilt process templates from recognized industry standardization entities.

“Everyone is engaged in the process and people are participating; it’s really worked out very well …This is as easy as it looks.”
