Question #5: What is the future-state of your business?

May 9, 2016

by ESPI

The last step before the software review and selection is to define how your business will run in the future. Having a cross-functional team comprised of Decision Makers, Business Process Owners (BPO), Subject Matter Experts (SME) and your external consultant will facilitate this forward-looking discussion.

 

During this process you will have an opportunity to identify which of the “As-Is” processes are truly adding value and which are not. You should eliminate the non-value items from the future-state plans. Again, this is an important place to understand and integrate what your customers are asking for. Integrating the “voice-of-the-customer” in your business processes now can give you a competitive advantage moving forward.
Once you have a proposed future-state document, have everyone, including the company’s leadership, approve the future-state document to confirm all stakeholders are 100% committed to implementing a better system.
