The assessment requests students to develop a business process management plan for a particular case in an organisation, a department or a project environment. The plan incorporates identifying the existing (As-Is) situation of the processes of the case, and a few possible future states (To-Be) of these processes for improvement on efficiency and other benefits. In addition, the students need to develop an ideal processes (Should-Be) plan to best suit the organisation and the project. Furthermore, the students will provide a performance evaluation report based on the scenarios created in the “Should-Be” processes to complete this assessment. PROJ 6009 Assessment 1 Brief July 2018 Page 2 of 10 Instructions: In this assessment, the students will begin with identifying a process case in a professional working environment. The case can be from an organisation or a project the students participated in before. This assessment contains TWO parts. To prepare for this assessment: • Review Modules 1, 2 and 3 for Part A; Module 4 and 5 for Part B; • Identify a case from any industrial sector (production or service industry) you experienced. Part A: Business Process Analytical Plan Choose a realistic and detailed organisation or project, and analyse the Business Process Management (BPM) methods and techniques taught in the first three modules. Students are required to work on a process analytical plan (including As-Is and To-Be process mapping). In your analysis, consider and include the following: ♦ Critically analyse the role of business process management in your chosen case study ♦ Critically evaluate approaches to business process management and systems, their associated risked and implementation processes Output: The Business process analytical plan contains: ♦ Business or project process briefing ♦ Case based business or project process mappings (As-Is and To-Be) ♦ Critical analysis on two mappings where are applicable: Good Bad and Ugly; Costs and Benefits; Advantages and Disadvantages; Feasibility and Sensitivity etc. Part B: Business Process Improvement Report In continuum of Part A, students are required to compile a performance evaluation report, to demonstrate their understanding and knowledge developed from Module 4 and 5, by applying tools and techniques introduced in class activities and personal researches. The students should clarify the business or project constraints and assumptions to create a scenario, where can be “For” or “Against” the “To-Be” process. Output: The Business process improvement report should cover: ♦ Brief description of the scenario Audit process improvement methods chosen ♦ Evaluate and suggest whether the “To-Be” can be the “Should Be” ♦ Establish and justify governance processes for BPM change ♦ Describe how to better ensure that all stakeholders are considered in both process and technology change.
