Organizational processes are the systematic way a company defines, organizes and implements its operations through the stages of the organization’s life cycle.
Back on Track
At Employers' Strategic Partnership Group, to help you get back on track, we include strategic measures to improve business performance, proprietary models and intellectual property that contribute to an organization’s goals and objectives. Process improvement is closely related to life cycle management.
At any stage of a company’s operations, the analysis of inputs and outputs can be audited, assessed and graded according to a set of performance requirements. Improving productivity, minimizing costs, reducing social costs and environmental emissions form part of the process improvement paradigm. A company continually works towards organizational process improvement to enhance its bottom line.
The organizational change process can be analyzed by breaking down the stages of the product or service life cycle. By identifying each stage and the procedures used, organizations are better able to assess the impact of change and build models to quantify the effects of the change on the company’s organizational processes. Change management seeks to balance the goals and objectives of an organization and align capital and resources to optimize a company’s performance.
The embryonic stage of a company’s organizational process is the group of activities related to defining and analyzing the initial requirements of the product or service. This scopes and bounds the nature of a company’s activities and establishes the company’s operational framework. Process improvement at this level seeks to make the best use of the company’s resources to establish the initial foundation that will constitute the mandate the company operates from.
The development stage of the product life cycle is where the organization of resources takes place, in preparation for the implementation of the company’s business objectives. Selecting, defining and refining production for organizational process improvement can streamline and accelerate the manufacture and distribution of the product and service.
The implementation phase of an organization’s processes is the integration of the company’s core business activities. Streamlining operational efficiency can help accelerate the manufacture or distribution of the product. Strategic initiatives to capitalize on the growth stage of the product life cycle allow a company to build a greater market share.
Sustaining companies operations becomes more critical when the market matures and the product moves into the declining phase of the product life cycle. Organizations processes can shift to cost cutting and greater efficiency to maintain declining margins.
At this stage, some companies are forced to leave the market in response to changing consumer preferences, tastes or the introduction of new technology or superior product. This is where the greatest potential for change management takes place.
Organizational processes adapt according to the changing goals and objectives of the company and market conditions.
