September 3, 2010 – Business process optimization is not a project that can be completed overnight, nor is it a specific architecture or business model. It is an ongoing program in which you implement various transformative technical projects in order to enhance agility, efficiency, and effectiveness throughout key processes.

This advice came from an interesting article on Intelligent Enterprise titled “Data Analytics: Key to Process Optimization.” Reminding us of key components of a business process optimization program and what is involved at all levels in the organization, the author points out the need for tight collaboration between business stakeholders and the many change agents, business architects, process architects, business analysts, data stewards, and analytics professionals upon which the success of your optimization efforts depends.

Though lengthy, this article is worth a peek, if only to remind us that anything worth doing is worth doing right, whether that be networking building or taxonomy building, ontology development or client development.
