Improved processes provide business with superior outcomes. No matter how established the business and processes are, there still can be several opportunities for improvement. Points for improvement are sometimes easily found by only making an illustration for the process.
By the end of this course, through several highly engaging workshops, participants will be able to provide process documentations and illustrations (process maps). Participants will also have a good understanding of the steps involved in business improvement and making processes more agile and productive.
