Broadpeak Consulting starts this assessment by conducting an assessment of processes to develop an understanding of the state of the business processes across the organization and to identify improvement opportunities. This is done by comparing them with leading practices, industry norms and organization specific business realities. The confirmed improvement opportunities represent a base line against which all future design and implementation related activities are carried out.
This phase is only applicable in the case of organizations that are undergoing a transformation exercise, be it an implementation of an ERP or an assessment of current business practices.
To-Be or future state process maps describe which activities are to be performed in what sequence. This is defined, to address the improvement opportunities, identified during the current state assessment. This is based on leading practices, applicable to the related domain and industry.
These are defined to reflect the adoption of the business model and strategy or, in the case of an existing business, any improvement opportunity identified during the current state assessment of an organization.
Based on the agreed To-Be or future state policies and processes, a policies and procedures manual is developed, which is easy to understand and implement.
A detailed operational and financial authorities matrix is developed, keeping in view the To-Be or future state policies and process model and delegation ethos of the organization.
Based on the defined processes, Broadpeak Consulting develops a functional.requirement document. This can be used to undertake an ERP selection exercise and its implementation. As this document is prepared, after undertaking the process re-definition exercise, it will truly represent the future business requirements and not just an accumulation of requirements based on the current operations of the organization.
