The Design Process By Dr. The second challenge is to get buy-in from the entire organization and implement the new design so that it dramatically and positively changes the way the business operates. Many organizations fail to adapt and adjust their internal infrastructure to the rapidly changing business demands around them because their business processes, structures, and systems act as barriers to efficiency and common-sense decision making.
These internal barriers can trap capable people who eventually become cynical and disheartened by their inability to change or influence obvious gaps, inconsistencies, or burdensome constraints within the organization.
The design process identifies ineffective work flows, structures, Process design analysis systems, redesigns them to fit current business needs, and develops plans to implement the new changes, promptly achieving better results throughout the organization.
Processes are streamlined, structures are simplified, and systems are improved as people are organized into business units and teams which allow them greater authority and responsibility for their success.
There are a number of ways to set up the design process. Senior leadership can sponsor and lead the change process using the conference model, where large numbers of people from a cross-section of the organization participate real-time in analysis, design, and implementation sessions.
The advantage of this model is that a significant number of employees, if not the entire organization, can be directly involved in the change process. This builds a strong sense of commitment and ownership to new design decisions and directions.
Another advantage to the conference model sessions is that problems can be identified and design and implementation decisions can be made quickly, without drawing out the process over extended periods of time.
Using this model we can accomplish short-cycle redesign in a matter of weeks instead of months and years. A second model involves a core design team, charted by senior management.
In this model, a smaller number of employees from a cross-section of the organization analyze, redesign, and develop implementation plans which they present to senior leadership and the rest of the organization for approval and adjustment. The advantage of this model is that the design team creates continuity throughout the process, and can drill deeper in some of the analysis, design and planning tasks.
The design team model also fosters commitment and ownership throughout the organization, but requires more ongoing communication to the rest of the organization, and tends to take a little more time to get through design and planning and on to implementation.
With either the conference model or the design team model, the design process, from chartering to implementation, can take from six weeks to eighteen months, depending on the size, motivation, and resources of the organization.
In-Depth Process Analysis If comprehensive organization assessment has not been done during the leadership process as part of direction setting with senior leadership, it must be done here as preparation for design sessions.
Once assessment is completed, it is often necessary to analyze core work processes and computer system flows at more levels and in more detail. In-depth process analysis starts where the larger assessment process leaves off, identifying and analyzing processes which need to be understood and mapped in more detail before conscious and accurate design decisions can be made regarding them.
If there are other systems or structures which need to be better understood, they may also be analyzed in more depth before moving to redesign decisions. In-depth analysis can take from a few days to a few weeks, depending on the need for more data.
They will streamline and simplify core processes spanning the entire business, and reconfigure how business units, departments, support groups and teams organize around those processes. This often eliminates functional silos and integrates people and resources around activities critical to organization success.
As units are created, dedicated and shared resources are also assigned to various sections or levels of the organization. Participants will also adjust or rethink coordination systems such as policies, procedures, and information sharing, and development systems like recruitment and selection, training, performance management, and rewards.Process Analysis and Design is a systematic approach to improve our understanding of the business processes of an organization to assist in the realization of tangible benefits such as cost reduction, process efficiency, and effective human resource allocation.
