A business may have a great product, but if they don’t have the operations in place to efficiently and effectively support it—production, manufacturing, sales, finance, human resources, — it won’t succeed. Product innovation is seen as flashier and so gets far more attention, but a company can create an enduring competitive advantage by revolutionizing business operations.
The problem is most attempts to improve business operations are reactive, sporadic, and siloed. Saldanha and Passerini’s Dynamic Process Transformation model provides constant, ongoing, enterprise-wide process optimization by focusing on three drivers of change. First, "open market rules"—each business process must be run as a separate business, instead of via monolithic mandates coming down from on high. Second, there must be "unified accountability"— outcomes must be clear and consistent across the company, instead of being siloed within departments. And third, there needs to be a "dynamic operating engine," a methodology to convert the constantly changing business process goals into tactical day-to-day employee actions. To summarise, the book shows you how to deliver a dynamic business process transformation, which keeps building upon business process superiority, systemically.
