Process definitions are high level descriptions instead of rigid workflows : Processes can only be defined up to a certain level of detail, and it is difficult to provide low level work instructions or to automate decisions. Because they cannot be formalised in detail, process simulation is rarely possible. Decisions are highly subjective and too complex to be expressed in a formal language, as they are taken based on intuition and not on rigid business rules.
It is a good idea to choose a champion for each tool who will master its use. Assign owners to processes Choose a person with leadership skills and the appropriate level of responsibility and influence and make him/her accountable for continuous improvement of the process. Give him/her a clear objective to achieve and an incentive to reach the goal. Encourage feedback for process improvement To ensure that the flow of information between executors and the process owner is fluid, encourage people to contribute to process enhancement through incentives. Use your imagination to reward contributors (consider not only monetary incentives).
In the last years some organizations have emerged with the aim of creating professional communities around specific disciplines such as Software Development (SEI, ESI, etc...), Project Management (PMI), Business Process Management (BPMI), IT Service Management (ITSMF), etc... One of the objectives of these groups is to develop a body of knowledge that compiles the discipline's best practices in the form of reference frameworks, methodologies and maturity models. These assets should be considered by any organization interested in knowledge process management.
Another tip would be to look in to a so called tax-sheltered plan, these plans are also called 401(k) plans and most times are offered by your employer. It would be wise to join such a program and put as much money as you could possible afford in it. your employer is allowed to put extra money on top of the portion you put in, they will get a tax deduction for this as well so everybody is happy with this type of plan. A final tip could be to give some thought towards investing you money, the way you save is at least as important s how much you save. No matter how much you save just be aware that you need to put something aside if you want to enjoy the golden days with the same, or even more, joy as you did your working life.
Perhaps you feel some shyness. That is understandable. According to shyness researchers, more than 80% of those surveyed have said that they have felt shy at some point in their lives, and 40% label them selves as currently shy! So to win your ex back, you must overcome some shyness. You must re-master the art of conversation. You must get out there and meet new people and become more popular. But if you flex and work out your social muscles, you will definitely strengthen them!
They are more difficult to implement through discipline than administrative human-centric processes (although some discipline is needed). It is better to focus on obtaining buy-in from the people affected by the processes through early involvement, communication and expectations management. It is a known fact that knowledge workers are reluctant to change their habits. Some say knowledge workers don't like following procedures because they feel it limits their creativity; but most of the time they will be happy to follow a procedure as long as they see value in it, perceiving that it helps them work better and produce a better process output.
