Please prepare a 3- to 5-page paper on the following topic:
What is a business process? Why is adopting a process view of organizations essential to becoming a successful manager?
In answering the above, you may want to consider following:
Describing one or more key business process in an organization to include why they are important. You might use examples from your current or past organizations that you worked in or had to deal with. The background material talks about kinds of processes – or levels of processes. What kind of processes or what levels of processes are the ones that you described.
Identify the main integration points between and among processes. I.e. You can provide an example of how the process described above integrate(d) with others. You may want to consider using the terminology in some of the background material.
Your paper should be between three and five pages. Take a definite stand on the issues, and develop your supporting argument carefully. Using material from the background information and any other sources you can find to support specific points in your argument is highly recommended; try to avoid making assertions for which you can find no support other than your own opinion.
The purpose of the Session Long Project in Trident University classes is to give you the opportunity to explore the applicability of the Module to your own life, work, and place in space and time, and to experiment with the Module to see how the otherwise academically rigorous presentation of a topic may, with more or less work and/or trauma, become “up close and personal.” This is done in a number of different ways—sometimes cumulative papers, sometimes practical hands-on experimentation with a tool of some sort, sometimes reflections on a place of work or life. The common thread is personal application, aimed at demonstrating a cumulative knowledge and understanding of the course’s material. The main purpose of the written parts of the assignments is to show that you’ve had some experiences doing the project that you’ve thought carefully about what they mean for your own education and that you can make some personal applications of this meaning to your own professional and/or personal understanding. Demonstrating this understanding is actually considerably more important than carrying out any specific step in the project instructions.
