Over a period of 10 years I have had several excellent engagements with the Process Renewal Group. They have trained, mentored and consulted on the subjects of Business Process Management, Business Process Analysis /Modeling, and Strategic Capability Roadmapping. Their methodology and their actionable insights regarding how businesses can determine and improve what is most important to work on, both operationally and strategically, have made a significant impact on my organization’s performance.
The Process Renewal Group played a pivotal role in several major initiatives I was delivering. They helped us understand which areas of the business had to improve to deliver our chosen strategy, several of which were not originally on the focus list but were subsequently validated as the initiatives progressed. They brought a holistic approach to understanding business performance drivers and helped us understand what needed to improve to achieve our objectives. And through these engagements, they helped institute a cultural change towards the role of business processes which continues today. Their success with these engagements has led to further partnership with Process Renewal Group in other areas of the organization.
Process Renewal Group was our ideal partner for translating our transformation goals into concrete actionable plans to ensure alignment and traceability. I had the opportunity to work with PRG on two occasions, once with a major Canadian Financial Institution and again with a major Canadian Digital Media company. In both cases, I was extremely satisfied with the breadth and depth of their recommendations to drive improved organizational performance through their process-centric and Customer focused approach.

The Canadian manufacturing and sales operations of 2 large household name manufacturers needed to be integrated as part of a global effort triggered by the merger of these 2 brands a few years earlier.
Taking a business design approach to develop the future state of the integrated business unit proved to be a very effective way to focus the integration effort to achieve the desired business outcomes of acting as one. Newly defined business processes became the basis to drive organizational realignment and role design, technology change requirements, staff training, and business governance. It also became an overall communication tool to ensure all stakeholders are aligned on both the reasons for, and the details of the required changes. In this presentation, Sasha will:
- Describe the high-level objectives of the integration effort, and associated tight timelines
- Discuss how to tackle complex requirements, dealing with change for two unique established businesses
- Share how business architecture and process models can be effectively used as a stakeholder engagement and communication tool
- Demonstrate examples of some of the actual documentation formats used through-out the project

Business Architecture provides a strong foundation for business-wide transformation, digitization and optimization and is the basis for having an agile business. Given the inherent complexities, making the right choices in what to change is not simple. Avoiding duplication and sub-optimization means that all of the moving parts must be classified, well understood and inter-connected before change can confidently begin. Business Architecture subject areas are numerous. Processes and capabilities and other important domains are complex enough. Being able to find the interconnections among them is even more so. A well-formed Business Architecture can help untangle the confusion and deliver inherently adaptable solutions.
This session will introduce some of the critical elements needed.
- Stakeholder Value Orientation
- Business Concepts / Information models
- Business Processes
- Business Capabilities
- Business Measurement
- Change Prioritization
- Process / Capability Alignment
What happens when you automate a broken process? What happens when you implement a brand-new system where the old process will no longer work? In a manufacturing environment the result would be the same defects only faster!! In business it is not much different, except the cause of defects can be much harder to spot. Improving business processes is necessary whenever implementing any new technology or seeking to optimize and gain efficiency.
This session is designed primarily for practitioners who are starting their journey in process improvement, or those who are looking for a refresher and some new ideas.
In this session you will learn how to:
Identify if a business process is in need of improvement
Understand and document existing processes
Develop a prioritized list of issues and potential areas of improvement
Determine root causes and potential solutions
Synthesize the various solutions into a coherent improvement effort
Plan and implement the improvement effort
