Organizations today are confronted with so-called “exponential times”. Everything is evolving faster, which means that companies have to follow the trends and evolutions in the market faster and faster in order to remain viable. To achieve this, they are constantly looking for new methods and technologies that increase efficiency and enable the development of new products or services.
Business Processes Modeling
At ValueBlue we support organizations in these changing times by clearly mapping out their business processes and then streamlining and automating them.
An inventory of business processes can be done in many ways. You start by gaining a better insight into your business processes and you then use that insight as a basis to improve these processes, with or without computerization. To thoroughly describe your business processes, the use of an adapted methodology is recommended. It is important to use one set of conventions so that everyone maps the business processes in the same way. In this way the processes remain methodologically correct and can be thoroughly analyzed.
Business Process Modeling Notation
BlueDolphin uses various modeling methods, including “Business Process Modeling Notation” (BPMN). BPMN is a standard way of mapping business processes using the flow chart method. This method provides a visual overview of working methods and information flows within an organization and is an essential factor in business process management (BPM), managing change to improve business processes.
The advantages of BPMN are that it is simple enough for business users and at the same time powerful enough to display the complex semantics that IT employees need. BPMN visualizes process flows, actors, process steps and actions. It is the common language that bridges the communication gap that frequently occurs between the design and implementation of a business process.
The primary goal of BPMN is to provide a standard notation that is understandable for all stakeholders. This includes the business analysts who create and refine the processes, the technical developers who implement these processes, and the process owners who manage the processes.
With BPMN you can increase the efficiency within an organization, so that you can deal more flexibly with new circumstances, cost savings and a head start on the competition.
