Process management as a concept has been in existence almost 100 years and still produces very impressive results when used properly. There are a lot of organisations claiming to use these techniques, but levels of customer service and process predictability for customers demonstrates there is a long way to go yet.

We define the terms and basic building blocks of process management techniques and survey what can be gained from the international standards, but also dispel myths that are commonly held views but not very helpful.

There is a section on risk and on simple financial calculations, which are two areas where improvement teams fail to impress management. This will help participants explain their progress and value more effectively. Nothing is more demoralising than working hard on a project that has a great outcome, but others don’t feel it was successful. This situation is totally avoidable.

Throughout the workshop, participants receive tools to help on their process or quality improvement journey, and there is time allotted to practice them. This programme is supported by a number of online tools that are available to participants following the workshop, including the ability to contact the facilitator for guidance after the workshop ends.
