In our drive to improve process performance we often get stuck trying to figure out where to start. One common technique begins with a process audit – a detailed assessment of one or more processes to understand how people, process, technology, and knowledge work together, or in many cases don’t. An understanding of the current process behaviors and factors that influence performance and outcomes is essential to identifying improvements and prioritizing where to start with change.

APQC’s Jeff Varney, advisory services director, and Jonathan Kraft, project manager, will discuss how to identify and prioritize improvement opportunities. Join this webinar on Tuesday, February 26 at 1:00 p.m. CST to learn how to:

  • plan and conduct a process audit,
  • gather insights on current state performance,
  • analyze and prioritize results,
  • get leaderships’ understanding and buy-in for improvements, and
  • use some lessons learned on common factors that decrease process efficiency.
