Whether you are looking for a way to create efficiencies, analyze the work that is being done, or provide better customer service or innovation, you are ultimately looking for a tool to better understand processes. A full and complete introduction to organizational processes, growth, and business transformation, Business Process Mapping: Improving Customer Satisfaction, Second Edition is that tool.

Now providing more detailed work and examples related to customer mapping and enterprise risk management (ERM), the Second Edition focuses particularly on how objectives, risks, and key performance indicators are fundamental to understanding and analyzing processes. Its case studies and a wide range of new tools, including RACI matrices, "spaghetti" maps, and the use of control flowcharts, enhance and enrich the basic work done to get you successfully mapping using a more robust approach to process analysis.




Starting with a concept that is the cornerstone of moviemaking—storyboarding—the Second Edition walks you through the steps used in process mapping, including:

  • Working with the client to ensure that everyone has a full understanding of the processes involved.
  • Learning the underlying concepts behind the process such as objectives, risks, and key controls.
  • Building the actual maps that are the cornerstone of this approach.
  • Using various approaches to help determine how to make the process better.
This practical book discusses the complete cycle of business process mapping and links business objectives, risks, and measures of success to the processes being mapped. In addition, the Second Edition now includes questionnaires, process analysis worksheets, hierarchy/owner maps, and specific techniques to be used in developing effective process maps.
Ultimately, process mapping is a dynamic analytical technique meant to make your business run better. Drawing on their unique experience and expertise in the area of business process mapping, authors Mike Jacka and Paulette Keller reveal their simple yet powerful approach to process mapping as an effective analysis tool—whether you are working within the department, within the company, or externally. Its holistic approach transforms flowcharting into a powerful, customer-focused tool for business improvement.
 Bundled for savings, the hands-on workbook includes a completed case study that serves as the basis for a number of exercises showing how the process mapping is actually performed.
