Analyze Business Processes Before Automating Them: An iHRIS Manage Case Study

A really interesting piece from the official iHRIS blog:-

Analyze Business Processes Before Automating Them: An iHRIS Manage Case Study

For our iHRIS Malawi project, we’ve declared upfront that business process re-engineering is out of scope. However, there are obvious challenges with the existing manual process which we must overcome before we can introduce truly positive and value-added change into working practices. But to change working practices, you have to offer a better alternative than what’s currently there.

It’s a somewhat catch-22 or “chicken and egg” situation.

Automating a broken process is insane and would be a mistake. A mistake we do not want to make in Malawi.

“If you would persuade, you must appeal to interest rather than intellect.” – Benjamin Franklin

  2. Nice post. I learn something totally new and challenging on blogs I stumbleupon on a daily basis.

    It’s always exciting to read through articles from
    other authors and practice something from other websites.
