In this Assignment, you are going to evaluate the supporting business process based on criteria detailed below.
As the BPM nears completion the process team must be concerned not only with the bestfit roll-out option but also in providing information to the work team that will handle the completed process or process change to ensure they are successful. This often takes the form of “mentoring.” Mentoring is most often a one-on-one activity in which an “experienced” individual (the mentor) provides guidance and advice to someone with less “experience” (the mentee). Any mentoring relationship is, by nature of the process, a close one in which experiences, knowledge, and skills are shared. The best way for mentors and mentees to share information is through a process called ““shadowing.” Shadowing occurs when the mentee actively watches, follows, and participates in the activities, processes, or actions that are completed by the mentor. This provides a visceral and active learning environment. Consider the BPM process…and address the following (support your answers with research on mentoring and shadowing through the Internet):
1. Should all members of the BPM team be considered as possible “mentors”? Explain and justify your answer.
2. Who within the organization would be the “mentee(s)” for the institutionalization of the new processes? Make sure you fully support your conclusions.
3. Identify ways in which mentors and mentees can use “shadowing” as a method for tracking and assessing the ongoing changes within the company after completion of the BPM project.
After you answer the 3 questions above, include a section of a brief summarization consisting of the detailed answers to the questions below. The two questions below have to do with the last two assignments you did for me, Prof Xavier. Remember? This summary should not be more than one page.
1. Which implementation strategy did you select as the best fit for your selected process? Why?
2. Which 3 metrics did you decide to use for assessing project success? What were the target rates?
>Cover page, “Discussion”(3 COMPLETE pp.), and Reference page=5 COMPLETE pages.(Nothing less then 5 pages!).
>Explain and justify if all members of the BPM team should be mentors.
>Identify who should be the mentees during the instituionalization of the new processes.
>Identify ways in which mentors and mentees can use “shadowing” as a method for establishing the changes within the company.
>Identify ways in which mentors and mentees can help assess ongoing performance.
>Responses must demonstrate critical thinking and analysis and exhibit application of information.
>Clear business writing: Spelling and grammar are acceptable. Effective use of APA. Follow the required format and instructions above!
>3 sources in APA citation(Nothing less then 3, and it’s not necessary for more)
>Font size: 12
