Business Processes (2128IBA)

The course serves as an introductory platform to business processes. It offers both conceptual and practical guidance for achieving competitive advantage by managing business processes. Business process management involves the deliberate and collaborative design, management and goal definition of end-to-end sets of activities that create value for customers. Extensive use of supplementary material from Management, Marketing, Logistics and Human Resources literature is made. Key aspects of business processes at the management, operational and support level are investigated and supporting theories explored looking at the work of Taylor, Harmon, Davenport, Hammer and Porter to name some. By taking a holistic view of the organization, that transcends vertical, horizontal, external and geographical boundaries, this course provides a road map for guiding organizations to analyse, re-design and improve business processes. Finally, the effects of the application of Information Systems on business processes are investigated in terms of how the processes themselves are captured and become an integral part of the technology.
