processmanagement

In every company, regardless of the branch, the quality and capability of the business processes decisively determine the economic success of a company.

Here, in addition to the value-creating processes (core, main or performance processes), the so-called management and support processes also play an important role. On this basis, process orientation in the company must be aligned to all business processes. An analysis based on proven methods identifies the business processes (management, core and support processes) that are relevant for business success. The information, positions, aids and tools essential for the proper functioning of these processes must be defined and, if possible, made available to the company’s employees at a glance. Complicated and complex forms of presentation must be avoided. A key factor for successful business process management is process controlling. Here, it is important to define and establish meaningful key performance indicators in the company that are tailored to the company’s specific needs and requirements. These key performance indicators (process indicators) not only show how efficiently and effectively the company’s processes are functioning, but also how well company divisions are working (area indicators), where one currently stands on the path to strategy implementation (strategy indicators), and how the individual risk areas are currently assessed (risk indicators).

LEAN Management is a management and organizational concept that aims to systematically avoid all forms of wastage, errors and unnecessary costs in all areas, while at the same time striving for the best possible quality.

 

LEAN Management is now successfully applied worldwide in almost all areas without restriction to manufacturing processes (LEAN Production).

LEAN Management bundles a multitude of tools:
