Business Process Management for Contracting and Management

To get the desired outcome of a management or contracting process, more than planning and execution is required. It also requires careful analysis and management the interdependent business processes involved in the planning, construction, procurement prior to construction closure, and the commissioning of the built environment. This is why business process management (BPM) is so vital to the success of a project or a company.

BPM is an integrated, systematic approach for discovering models, improving the efficiency of, automating and continuously monitoring business processes. The aim is to align internal business activities with strategic goals, resulting in improved efficiency and greater profitability.

The BPM lifecycle is comprised of six phases to accomplish its goals: analyze, design and implement monitoring, optimizing and revamp. The first step of the process is to look at the current process and determine areas that could be improved. The next step is to design the new process to meet business needs using the possibility of standardization and automation. The implementation phase aims towards implementing the new process model. Ongoing monitoring and optimization will ensure its ongoing efficiency.

Construction companies waste hundreds of thousands or hundreds of thousands, of dollars each year, on manual tasks and inefficient business processes. This is the case both at the office as well as on the construction site. Automating these processes enhances visibility, increases operational responsiveness, improves risk mitigation, and expedites decision-making. It also helps reduce expenses, boost motivation for employees and improve utilization of resources. To accomplish this, teams need to be able to see all their processes as well as the process that drives them.
