These days organizations both large and small must be cognizant of external forces that can impact their business. An environmental disaster could play havoc on supply chains. A disease pandemic could have a significant impact on the demand for related healthcare products. A new administration could also bring new regulations impacting existing business processes, while the health of the global financial markets could play havoc on interest rates and lending practices. Does any of this sound familiar?
As quickly as business operations move today, so does the changing external factors that impacts those business processes. The problem is that many companies make the mistake of often designing business processes in isolation, with little to no foresight given to external and environmental variations that have a significant impact.
It’s essential that process modeling and design consider these contextual external variables that have an impact on operations. Reacting quickly requires a closed-loop process modeling and execution platform. It requires the ability to proactively model business processes, make changes in assumptions as required and re-model the results. Being able to quickly and directly affect findings to re-engineer or execute new processes leads to greater enterprise agility, collaboration and understanding of business needs.
