Something to Consider: 7 Steps to Business Process Insight

Something to Consider August 2020 4

The advent of noise cancelling headphones was nirvana to music lovers. For the first time we could hear every instrument, every note and nuance, without extraneous distractions, even when we were on the move.

We now have global business processes spanning the globe, supported by multiple instances of numerous systems and services, producing more data than we know what to do with. And we need to make business decisions based on all this data in ever faster cycles.

We have analytics teams, data teams, data scientists, AI experts all trying to create meaningful business insights from all this data.

There is still something missing. This is not (just) a data gathering and harmonization engineering challenge, it is a business challenge to identify what insights we need that will REALLY make the difference to our decisions.

We call this “Business Science”. We believe there are 7 steps to making this work for global processes.

Join us on the 17th September, with Steve Fox, Head of Global Business Services and Process Excellence champion, in a discussion as we explore the challenges in harnessing data for maximum benefit and some of the best practices that current and aspiring GBS Leaders are looking to exploit.
