Over the last few months I have met with countless companies discussing the impact of GDPR on their organisation. It has been astounding to see the amount of consulting companies, technology vendors and solution provider who are using scare tactics as a way to position their services. Let's be absolutely clear - the world isn't coming to an end on May 26th, 2018! However, ignorance is no longer bliss! All I hear is GDPR…bla..bla..bla with very little substance or real understanding of the operational challenges that will be impacted by the privacy change.
We are experiencing the most explosive interest in process management ever seen over the last two decades that has been fuelled by the significant demand for business transformation to enable sustained internal operating change. The business process industry is awash with vendors proclaiming that the next generation of automation, such as Robotic Process Automation (RPA) or easy to model low-code applications are the nirvana solutions to meet the new demands of the ‘4th Industrial Revolution’. This coupled with the analyst community driving their technology agenda versus business outcomes is creating even more confusion. Adding more fuel to the fire are the traditional consulting and system integration firms who are planning to make hay from this market confusion and lack of knowledge.
Value Based Process Transformation is a single management approach which puts the entire process user base (those that have the ‘need’ versus those that ‘want’) at the centre of a company’s process transformation philosophy. Consequently the maximisation of value directs and provides consistency to an organisation’s strategy, approach, structure and processes, as well as surfacing what measures are used to monitor performance.
Business processes change and evolve continuously. In order to capture these changes rapidly, the collaborative process workshop is used. During these workshops participants brainstorm ideas, make decisions and agree next steps. But why is it that time and time again, these workshops fail?

Today we live in a hyper compliant economy, where there is a need to ensure corporate compliancy to remain competitive and survive. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into act on 26th May 2018. Failure to comprehend and action the requirements within this regulation will lead to extensive penalties and fines. To keep satisfied loyal customers and shareholders, as well as ensuring your business remains sustainable there needs to be an understanding as how to effectively manage the requirements of GDPR. Ignorance is no longer bliss, now is the time to become aware of GDPR and the actions you need to take to be ready.
GDPR has been described by some as being the most significant regulatory framework to hit companies since the Sarbanes Oxley act. With a stated objective to “give citizens back control of their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for business” it will impact every single European individual who has shared their personal data with an organisation and every single organisation that holds information on any European individual.
To achieve process transformation excellence organisations need a solid foundation of process methodology, change management, analytical insight and a lifecycle of improvement. The traditional and ordinary approaches to process transformation are typically the root cause of project failure and very often leaving the users (employees, customers, partners and suppliers) left with difficult to understand and follow process documentation leading to non-compliance, risk, poor customer service, long lead times and poor stakeholder engagement.
This Whitepaper discusses the desperate need for a new approach when it comes to ERP implementations. Whether as part of a Shared Services Organization, Finance Process Transformation or even a system swap, surely, everyone has become sick and tired of failure after failure and can no longer accept the ‘ordinary’ approach that has for years only delivered delay and financial overrun.
