Prior to beginning work on this assignment, review the A Learning Process Model to Achieve Continuous Improvement and Innovation article.
Select a company with which you are familiar and consider a process within that company that could be improve-d. This could be a business process, a manufacturing process, a distribution process, or a service process that you have observe-d or been involve-d with during your career.
Describe the company and how the selecte-d process fits into the overall framework of the company.
Create a step-by-step description of the current process incorporating a process flow chart.
Analyze the current process for inefficiencies.
Develop a process improvement recommendation, including a detailed plan incorporating business process engineering theory and including benchmarking the reengineered process to a close business competitor. The process should be designed to be more efficient, using appropriate tools and methods learned throughout the course, including capacity utilization improvements and statistical quality control models.
Assess the expected benefits of the improved process and the potential benefits.
Sources ProQuest and EBSCOhost are great sites to find resources. Also, write in a concise and logical, using excellent grammar and style techniques. Additionally, the quality of your writing dictates grading criteria. On the other hand, if you use direct quotes from books or articles, place the words you copied (use parenthesis) and cite them in-line. Also, only use sources within the five-year range.
Additional Guidelines The quotes should be complete sentences (no more, less) and should be incorporated in your essay to illustrate your ideas. Please, cite your sources in a clickable reference list at the end. Also, do not copy without providing proper attribution (quotation marks and in-line citations). Also, write an essay format, not in bullet form, numbering, or another list format. It would be best if you use your own words. Lastly, proofread your work and run it through Grammarly for thorough confirmation.
