Improving process performance. Accelerating business innovation.
A three-day, advanced Hammer Certification class on business process management.
The role of the Process Owner is a challenging one, characterized by significant accountability with limited resources and authority. Because process ownership is relatively new to many organizations, people taking on the role have had little guidance, training, or opportunity to learn from peers. The purpose of this course is to illuminate the role, explore the challenges, offer practical approaches, and enable individuals to successfully navigate opportunities, constraints, and conflicting priorities. This is a course for Process Owners. Managers and Leaders seeking to improve their effectiveness and the staff and consultants supporting them.
Schedule: Course begins at 8:30 am on Day One and ends at 4:30 pm on Day Three

In today's turbocharged market environment, focusing on Process represents both a challenge and an opportunity. With complex organizational structures, bringing process to the forefront is a challenge to existing power structures. But, focusing on process is also the path to success in turbulent times.
Process Governance is much more than identifying Process Owners. In truth, Process Owners don't really 'own' anything. A better title would be Process Steward. But, whatever we call it, this position entails a complex set of roles, accountabilities, decision rights, and structures that all need to work together. These are all part of the Process of Process Management.
The role, its responsibilities, why it matters, and how successful Process Owners add value. We address strategies and tactics, goals and objectives, challenges and responses, governance and influence networks.
How to bound and understand one’s process and its moving parts – functional managers, front-line associates, tools and technologies. We examine process from a customer perspective, to understand both value and cost.
The Process Management Cycle – bridging the gap between current and required performance. We introduce techniques for selecting measures, improving results, and sustaining performance.
This interactive session will focus on a set of exercises designed to help attendees identify the best path to improving process oversight into their own organizations.
How Process Owners guide projects and harvest benefits. We focus on project initiation, execution, redirection, and issue resolution, as well as cross-project prioritization and portfolio management.
The people-side of process ownership based on stakeholder analysis and engagement, coalition building, and effectively answering the questions ‘Why change?’ and ‘What’s in it for me?’
This final module focuses on how to recognize, discuss, and resolve conflicting priorities and avoid getting stuck in arguments (e.g. local/global, process/function, standard/exceptions, people/systems, customer/shareholder, part-time/full-time) that slow the implementation of effective Process Leadership.
