Process Improvement Methodology

The objective of the Process Improvement Methodology is to provide a common framework for conducting an analysis of an existing process and identifying and proposing process improvements. The methodology encompasses the discovery, documentation, and analysis of the current state of a process; identifying improvements and providing a roadmap to a proposed future state; process implementation and ongoing operations; and continual review for additional improvements. Industry standard approaches are employed where applicable. Examples include process modeling notation and process maturity assessment. The methodology is applicable and adaptable to any process. Some of the benefits of the Process Improvement Methodology include:

  • A consistent, documented, and repeatable process
  • Defined expectations for deliverables
  • Improved understanding of the effort required to conduct a process improvement analysis
