In my earlier days, I was amazed to see the number of management and strategy frameworks. Even today, it's surprising to find that strategy models continue to be one of the least formal.  Very often available in installments of excel and PPT files, to be used at your own risk. In fact, there is NO version control or baseline for the strategy models. Try asking a Sales  Director to share sales strategies deployed by company 2 years prior to his joining when the revenue was at peak? If you are lucky, you might get a one page note in some magazine...

Janne Ohtonen has published a new book called “You Think You Are Doing Well? Become a Winner With Customer-Centric Process Leadership!” which looks into business process management and leadership from a fresh perspective. The world is full of recipes for success, but too often we forget that success comes from within ourselves through the work what we do (for our customers, with our colleagues). One could even claim that success is mainly about attitude. When you have the right attitude, you focus on the right things, you overcome obstacles, you feel better and you work more efficiently. Surely you know what...

Business Process Management (BPM) is about managing everything that is done in an organisation to provide successful customer outcomes (hence it is a customer-centric effort). You need a plan, which includes a description from the organisation regarding how it will roll out and upkeep the Business Process Management (BPM) initiative, select processes for development and train people to lead the actual implementation. All this requires professional, leadership and communication skills. Janne Ohtonen has published a new book called “You Think You Are Doing Well? Become a Winner With Customer-Centric Process Leadership!” which is aimed to help you to grow those skills...

Some business process leaders are doing much better in changing their work practices compared to others. What do well-performing leaders know about adapting their organisation’s processes swiftly and adequately, that others don’t? And how well you are doing well as a process leader? New book from Janne Ohtonen, takes inspiration from the Greek phrase “panta rhei” (or “everything flows”) once spoken by philosopher Heraclitus, indicating that everything is susceptible to change. This still holds true, 2500 years after these words were first spoken. Organizations are changing constantly, under pressure of market demand, competitive forces, technological inventions and new legislation. This demands...

Nowadays many businesses seem to struggle with achieving a proper balance between maintaining business rules and discipline while providing employees enough space for freedom and individual wishes. You must have seen those stories in magazines where CIO’s are pulling their hair off when people bring in their own iPhones and Blackberries. Some organizations are far too permissive, allowing their personnel to do virtually anything as they see fit. The problem in that is potential security risks. Other organizations are too strict, severely restricting their employees’ actions and behavior by forcing them to do things the way that does not fit them....
