Process Mapping


https://edp.broad.msu.edu/events/47
An organization, any organization, is a collection of processes. These processes are the natural business activities you perform that produce value, serve customers and generate income. Managing these processes is the key to the success of your organization. Unfortunately, most organizations —probably yours— are not set up to manage processes. Instead they manage tasks. Think about it. Isn’t your company organized around functions (the manufacturing department, the x-ray department, the sales department, the customer service department)? As a result, people tend to focus on “local” concerns instead of the “global” needs of process customers. Sub-processes evolve within departments without consideration of other functional areas. Layers of communication and management are created to ensure desired outcomes, thereby adding to costs and lengthening cycle and customer response times. Inefficiency and waste become part of the system. They rob your organization of profits, productivity and its competitive advantage. But, there is a way out. Process mapping is a simple yet powerful method of looking beyond functional activities and rediscovering your core processes. Process maps enable you to peel away the complexity of your organizational structure (and internal politics) and focus on the processes that are truly the heart of your business. Properly used, process maps can change your entire approach to process improvement and business management. . .and greatly reduce the cost of your operations by eliminating as many as 50% of the steps in most processes as well as the root causes of systemic quality problems.

Adaptive Leadership: Enhancing Individual and Team Performance


https://edp.broad.msu.edu/events/17

https://edp.broad.msu.edu/events/45


Research shows that there are seven critical roles that must be filled in all team contexts in order for the team to have long-term, sustained effectiveness. These roles include the:

  • Composer (selects the team members)

  • Designer (develops work procedures)

  • Motivator (energizes team members)

  • Decision-Maker (assesses the future and team’s direction)

  • Peacemaker (manages conflict among team members)

  • Teacher (helps the group learn from their experiences)

  • Developer (promotes interpersonal relationships among team members)

No one leader can fulfill all these roles but it is the leader’s responsibility to recognize his or her strengths and weaknesses in performing all the roles. Moreover, if there are roles that the leader cannot fulfill, it is his or her responsibility to either (a) personally adapt and develop the ability to perform the role or (b) make sure that the role is covered by some other member of the team. The skills learned in this seminar will help the attendee expand his or her leadership style beyond his or her current niche, providing long-term career survival and advancement.
After attending this program, participants will have learned how to:

  • Choose the right people

  • Re-engineer team tasks
