“I saw three advantages to doing process analysis this way:

1) the employees are doing real work in a team setting

2) the teams see different perspectives and feel like they're not the only one with this problem

3) we're driving a methodology through the organization and starting to get critical mass who knows and uses business process analysis.”

Finance Project Manager
