Brad Power, popular blogger for the Harvard Business Review and overall big thinker, recently posted a blog that I found to be important: Three Examples of New Process Strategy http://blogs.hbr.org/cs/2012/12/in_my_last_post_i_1.html
He quoted a famous writer who said “The future is already here – it’s just not very evenly distributed”. Brad’s use of this quote to describe Process Strategy 2.0 is so very true. He further said you don’t have to wait “for some breakthrough technology to emerge; it’s already here, albeit in bits and pieces”. BabbleWare has been delivering on this strategy since 1998 for industry leaders in Retail, Manufacturing, Healthcare and 3PL.
3 Key Areas
Brad identified three ways that process improvements will dramatically change in the coming decade:
1) expand the scope of work managed by a company to include customers, suppliers, and partners;
2) target the increasing amount of knowledge work; and
3) reduce cycle times to durations previously considered impossible
