Maintaining Your Gains: Transitioning from Project Management to Process Management
Management guru Peter Drucker once said, “There is no success without a successor.” In a real sense transitioning a project from Project Management to Process Management is akin to creating a succession plan. In this talk, Dr. Gerbsch will explore the advantages of implementing visual process management and contrasting it with the role and approach for Project Management. A general approach for rolling out standardized processes will be presented. Several process management examples from South University will be discussed along with a software demonstration on how their chosen process management tool was implemented.
