The best solutions also help you evaluate the feasibility of your objectives and how to develop them. In particular, if your objectives are focused on the same business functions you will be able to develop a business plan for all your business functions. Many times I see the best solution focused teams create and implement a business case for each business function and look at the proposal and determine whether or not it is feasible.
Every business needs a blueprint for their day to day operations. Every business needs to understand their customer and how they operate. Every business needs to know how their customers will react to a given situation. This understanding is the only way to develop a plan that has good odds of success.
The most effective approach for anyone involved in this type of work is to identify the problems and weaknesses, and design a solution that solves those problems. A plan that gives you information about how the problem will look after the problem is solved.
Once you have identified the problem and solution you then plan the business plans and start implementing the plan. You must execute the plan as designed and apply the business processes you developed into your daily operations.
In order to execute your plan, you must learn how to apply business process thinking. Without the knowledge of how to apply business process thinking you cannot make progress in this type of work.
So many of the problems we face in business today are the result of misdirected business process thinking. Misdirected business process thinking results in a plan that are poorly executed, poorly tested, and poorly designed.
Business processes are a series of steps, procedures, tasks, and events that are using to create an outcome that produces a desired result. In order to make progress, you must master the art of effectively using business processes.
When I teach people about these business processes, I always tell them that it does not matter how the outcomes look on paper. It matters that the outcomes are achieved in the right way.
Just as the structure of a building cannot be judged based on appearance, it doesn’t matter how a business process looks to the outside world. The only thing that matters is that the right business process is correctly applied and used.
In this case, I want to challenge you to design a business process in which you can build a business plan that successfully applies the business process. And you can do that by giving a business process a creative project that uses the business process.
