A “modern business experience” is when people and technology work in harmony to create a workplace that feels effortless. Why is this important? When you create a modern business experience, customers are thrilled, employees are more engaged, and you make more money.

Follow this three-part series and you will learn how you can simplify your business and create a modern business experience.

Step 1 - Organize Your Processes

The first step towards simplifying your business is to organize your processes. Organizing processes helps to focus attention on your goals, identify unnecessary activities, and helps employees to understand how their work impacts everyone around them.

We understand many organizations hold on to traditional processes since “this is the way it’s always been done.” Businesses that overcome this fear of change and take common sense steps to organize processes find these changes are inexpensive and very effective.

Great, but how do we begin?

Understand the process! Start by looking at one or two core processes. Leadership and process owners must see for themselves how the process is run at every step. Learn from employees responsible for each step to build an understanding of the process "as is". There is a story behind each step in the process so learn more by asking “Why?”. Build a consensus on what can change to simplify and organize the process and understand what will be the impact on the people and technology involved in the process. When a consensus is reached, make the change and monitor the simplified process to ensure quality. Take small steps rather than implementing all changes at once.
