The art of good management is the ability to make a practical assessment of an organization’s suitability to its strategy. Strategy formulation and opportunity surveillance are useless exercises unless the company has the internal abilities to execute its decision, or at least possesses the chance of developing the required capabilities. Competence, both generic and specific, plays an important role in the success of an organization. My Consultancy–Asif J.

in Rethinking Processes
Tags: change, information technology, jobs, production, Redesign, work
A reengineered business process looks vastly different from a traditional process. In order to meet the contemporary demands of quality, service, flexibility, and low cost, processes must be kept simple. Several jobs are combined into one. Many formerely distinct jobs are integrated and compressed into one. Traditional processes were intended to provide mass production for a mass market. All inputs were handled identically, so companies could produce uniform and consistent outputs. To meet the demands of the same process, each one is tuned to the requirements of different markets, situations and inputs. The new processes have the same economies of scale that result from mass production. My Consultancy–Asif J.
