Improve processes | The question for senior management to answer is which processes need to be improved, how much, and how quickly.
The need to build the right products, build the products right (improve processes), and build the products fast and well is a fundamental driver of all modern businesses – but how do you do it?
Business Process Improvement (BPI) is a systematic approach to help an organisation optimise its underlying processes to achieve more efficient results. Radtac has worked with Enterprise clients, public sector organisations and mid sized enterprises to deliver Agile business transformation that takes your process improvements to a new level.
The business world has changed. According to Forbes, 90% of startup businesses fail.
According to Professor Richard Foster of Yale University the average lifespan of a company in the S&P 500 index has decreased from 61 years in 1958 to just 18 years today, a run rate that would mean that by 2027, more than three-quarters of the S&P 500 will not exist.
‘Adapt to survive’ has become the mantra for all businesses. The businesses that will survive in today’s globalised, digitised world are those that can get their processes improved, shifting scarce resources towards maximising the return on investment.
The time of the ‘big bang waterfall’ type deliveries has gone, any business who expects that their customers will wait months or even years for products and services which are then not aligned with the customer’s needs will not survive. This is what the market is already experiencing as highlighted by Forbes and Professor Foster.

“Simple, clear purpose and principles give rise to complex intelligent behaviour. Complex rules and regulations give rise to simple stupid behaviour.”

There is most definitely a better way utilising Scaled Agile, Lean, Kanban and DevOps methods. The focus of all of these frameworks is simplicity. One of the guiding principles of Lean is to eliminate waste, and a guiding principle of all Agile frameworks is ‘simplicity: the art of maximising the amount of work not done’, which is essential.
Simplicity relates to working in small value driven batches of features. It also relates to keeping processes as simple as they can be. Agile focusses teams into ‘Feature Teams’ that contain all the skills required to produce small batches of valuable features. The creation of Feature Teams is combined with the simplest possible set of processes, like Scrum, which leads to significant reduction in waste and complex intelligent behaviour.
However, as with many things setting the appropriate focus on process improvement is a balance with other factors within the business. There is little point getting the right product delivery quickly but using a process that costs more than the revenue generated.
