Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) February 4, 2009
The International Process and Performance Institute (IPAPI) has released its "roadmap to the future" for process professionalism and organizational excellence. Focused specifically on addressing the need to embrace change, advance agility and deliver success to shareholders, customers and employees in everything we do, the roadmap to the future has now been charted in the IPAPI Process Management Framework.
The IPAPI Process Management Framework identifies the subject areas and skills needed to successfully build an organization that can adapt itself to changes, regardless of their extent, scope, market or economic conditions. Building from core practices of optimization, alignment and innovation, the Framework embraces every level of organizational need -- from strategy and governance in the Board Room to delivering success without exception on the front lines.
"Organizations do not need to change, they need to build a culture of change that observes, challenges and continually adapts to the world around them," states Terry Schurter, a global thought leader in business improvement and one of the Directors of the International Process and Performance Institute. "What we've done in the past will not serve us well in the future -- it's not even serving us well now. Everything must evolve and adapt to the changing world around us, including our businesses. For the first time, businesses have a roadmap to guide them on that journey."
The IPAPI Process Management Framework approaches the challenge of adaptation, change, and stakeholder success from the perspective of process; with the ultimate goal of helping organizations improve their overall success.
"While process is used throughout our Framework, this is a roadmap for business success that happens to use process as the best metaphor to achieving our goals," explains Don Smith, IPAPI Certified Coach and Institute Director. "What we care about is giving people the skills and abilities to succeed, regardless of context. It just happens that process is one of the best techniques we have to do just that."
Building from globally recognized techniques in optimization, alignment and innovation, the IPAPI Process Management Framework addresses the needs of Enterprise Process Management, Business Center of Excellence development, and Strategic Planning and Market Development - all the way to the comprehensive skills of the Certified Process Expert.
