There always is room for improvement, whether you’re looking to increase your business’s efficiency, reduce waste or increase customer satisfaction. However, implementing improvements to your process requires the right structure and model to achieve the desired results. Here are some of the most common approaches that have proved effective in business process improvement:

The first step is to determine the process you want to improve. This could be done through the use of a flowchart, swimlane diagram, BPMN map, or value stream map, depending on the specifics of your business’s processes. It is important to identify each step in order to determine what needs to be changed and how the new procedure will be implemented. After this is done and the changes are communicated to everyone who will be required to follow the new procedure. This will ensure that everyone is on board and will eliminate the chance of shadow processes or workarounds not planned that can arise when a new procedure is deemed to be difficult.

Once the “as-is” process is clear The next step is to come up with a list of possible improvements. You can do this through brainstorming sessions with stakeholders or using software tools that allow collaborative improvements. Once you have a list, prioritize the improvements that have the greatest impact and begin implementation. This should be done on a small scale to address any issues before rolling it out to the rest of the team.

You’ll need to evaluate the impact of your changes and track their effectiveness once they’ve been implemented. This will ensure that you’re getting the best return on investment for your company. Continual improvements can also aid in setting your business apart from competitors. Amazon for instance has an advantage due to its continuous efforts to streamline the supply chain and make deliveries quicker.
