A Full Business Process Review

A Full Business Process Review

I have been asked recently on which circumstances a full business process review should be conducted? Here is my answer:

A full business process review is typically used in the following circumstances:

  • The findings of the CRM business process assessment previously described warrant a more in-depth evaluation or redesign of business processes.
  • Current business processes are dysfunctional enough to warrant obtaining a detailed process review and recommendations report before beginning a CRM system design and implementation process. This approach may be needed if you plan a significant process redesign in conjunction with the implementation of CRM.

Regardless of the depth of assessment chosen, it’s imperative to do the following:

  • Create a visual model of key processes
  • Develop an understanding of business process needs from the perspective of customer-interfacing personnel and customers
  • Identify “gaps” in process functions
  • Determine the necessary actions to position your business processes for effective CRM implementation
