How to break BPM clichés: Iconic sports retailer to deliver masterclass in bottom-up transformation with Bizagi

Bizagi customer to present at this year's Symposium ITxpo 2014 in Barcelona, 9 - 13 November 2014

London, UK – November 5th, 2014

How to break BPM clichés: Iconic sports retailer to deliver masterclass in bottom-up transformation with Bizagi

How do you bring the BPM value to the front office as well as the back office? What are the challenges of appointing end-to-end process owners? What tactics can ignite BPM enthusiasm and drive the shift from abstract roadmaps into tangible solutions and hard metrics?

Find out the answers to all these questions and more at this year’s Symposium ITxpo 2014, where charismatic speaker Dion Sigmond will deliver a first-hand recollection of implementing the Bizagi BPMS platform at a leading and iconic sports retailer.

Sigmond - Head of Group Data Management with more than 20 years of experience, including leading cross-cultural teams on global ERP rollouts - promises to deliver a personal and informative case study with top tips for driving process improvements “from the bottom up”.

In his 20-minute session, Sigmond will demonstrate how taking the evolutionary approach "Start Small, Think Big, Scale Fast" enabled the global sports manufacturer to deliver a highly successful, enterprise-wide automation initiative. Through rapid-fire BPM cycles that take an average 2-4 months to complete, the corporate has created a dynamic and evolving portfolio delivering impressive ROIs in 7 departments including Supply Chain (headcount reduced by 60%, factory on-boarding time reduced by 50%) and Marketing (contract approval cycles cut from 2 months to 1 week).

Sigmond will also highlight the benefits of "Dual Portal" architecture, a collaborative approach which turbo-charged the sports retailer’s existing SharePoint Workflow solution and enabled its staff to handle dynamic and complex processes ranging from supply chain helpdesk to marketing contracts with professional athletes.

The "Start Small, Think Big, Scale Fast" approach will be at the fulcrum of the 20-minute discussion. Dion comments:

How to break BPM clichés: Iconic sports retailer to deliver masterclass in bottom-up transformation with Bizagi

“With IT teams under more pressure than ever to prove business value, delivering results quickly and cost-effectively is critical. Yet IT cannot go it alone; the key is to speak the language of the customer and make the Business participate from Day 1. Don’t sell a roadmap; sell the individual success while building the business transformation roadmap in the background. Invest in the right first process, combine it with a good mix of roles - not to mention a healthy dose of humor and pragmatism - and gradually move your organization from hierarchically-managed to process-managed. Allow your internal customers to discover the linkages as the BPM roadmap matures.”

The event, bookable via the Symposium ITxpo 2014 website, is recognized as the world’s most important gathering of CIOs and Senior IT Executives. Through a series of sessions, workshops and CIO keynotes, the intensive 3-day program is designed to equip IT professionals with the strategies and tactics for advancing enterprise and professional goals.
