Business Engineering

Business Engineering is about structuring and designing your business operations to become a machine, delivering a reliable repeating cycle of value generation for your customers - it is simply about doing things right - finding the optimal path through the various necessary operations in business to create maximum value at minimal cost. It encompasses consideration of how the organisation is structured, what business functions are necessary, which functions are grouped and managed together, how those functions are measured, what processes they operate, and whether those processes are optimal.

For example, in most businesses the Credit Control function is allied to the Accounts function within Finance. Is this optimal within your business, or just a historic convention? The Credit Control function is about engaging customers to pay for the goods and services they have been sold - arguably it is merely the completion of the sales activity and in some businesses should be contained within the Sales side of the business - Credit Control is a customer-facing operation, and the manner of its execution has significant bearing on an organisations' relationship with its customers and whether or not they are likely to be repeat customers.
