The Perigon Playbook
The Process Map Becomes a Playbook
The process map has now become the comprehensive Perigon Playbook containing all of the organization’s knowledge about a process. It contains four key playbook elements.
1) Process Scorecard
2) Architecture Map
3) Process Map
4) Process Knowledge
The Process Scorecard summarizes the purpose of the process, improvement status and current performance in cycle time, first pass yield, cost per unit, and customer relationships. It provides a quick glance into process characteristics and performance.
The Table of Contents
The Architecture Map provides a summary flow chart that establishes the backbone of the process, along with the main suppliers and customers. It gives the executive a quick summary as to where the process resides within the organization and what is taking place in the process.
The Process Map can contain maps for up to three process states, including current state, near state, and future state.
Current State defines the beginning process – describes the who, what, when, where and why of the process while pointing to the how (tasks are executed).
Near State is developed from current state as improvements are incorporated and the process moves toward deployment.
Future State builds upon the prior process definition and analysis to develop a streamlined process vision that incorporates best practices and future software/automation capabilities.
Process Knowledge details the organization’s intellectual property associated with the process.
Customer Value Assessment determines customer wants and needs for quality, response, cost, and relationship value.
Information Analysis identifies knowledge required to support task execution, including work instructions, procedures, specifications and checklists (the how).
Metrics Analysis determines the measures to be used to monitor process performance.
RACI Analysis identifies roles and responsibilities for each task.
Value Analysis assesses the value of each process element and estimates task time and cycle time.
Opportunity Analysis evaluates, classifies and prioritizes improvement opportunities.
Maturity Analysis evaluates process readiness for deployment.
Process Improvement Plan establishes the main goals, actions, responsibilities, and dates to implement desired process improvements.
