Major agencies are utilizing business process improvement as a key indicator in efficient delivery of services and improving internal operational efficiency.
A systematic analysis of an organizations business processes will need to include a review of its core processes, people and technology.
Process improvement has a short history in state government but is intended to be a positive, rather than punitive, cycle that relies on the expertise and engagement of employees who work with processes daily and know them best. By making processes more efficient, employees can be more effective and streamline their workload, resulting in improvements to the products and services delivered to the citizens.
Radha uses its own customized methodology (Lean Sigma for Government) which not only identifies specific processes to improve but also develops a method to sustain a culture of continuous business process improvement.
