Processes

Processes are the procedures within an organisation that lead in the end to the provision of services to the client as defined in the organisation’s strategy. Process management is the reduction and optimisation of contact points between the individual stages in these processes.

Process re-engineering centres on the effectiveness of business processes; checks are made to determine what the correct processes are for achieving the aims defined in the strategy.

In process steering, processes are designed, measured and improved to ensure efficient implementation, often as part of a quality management system whose scope is broader than the processes.

Whether processes are implemented as planned depends, however, not only on the correct processes but also, and particularly, from the way in which the staff understand their responsibilities and the influence they have on the results of their work. A participational, integral corporate culture is an essential prerequisite for functional process management.

Our experience ranges from drawing up process landscapes and designing new sub-processes to introducing process organisations and embedding all processes with the aid of IT systems.

We offer our clients support in the following tasks:

  • adapting business processes in the cases of strategic changes,
  • business process re-engineering projects,
  • drawing up structures to achieve added value,
  • identifying existing processes and designing new ones,
  • deciding on organisational changes,
  • introducing new processes into an existing structure,
  • setting up a process management system throughout the company,
  • IT integration.

onion: Consultancy Network

As partners in onion: Consultancy Network we are linked by a mutual desire for a society in which a balance exists between economic, ecological and social values. At the same time, this desire is the guiding principle for what we do and how we do it.

Through our consultancy work we help to ensure that companies and organisations are successful in the marketplace and that their staff produce effective work in a positive working environment that allows them to develop.

As a rule, our task is to help steer, monitor and assess our clients’ development processes. Our work is based on the awareness that the responsibility for a problem and how to solve it lies at all times with the client, that there is not necessarily only one correct way to meet the client’s requirements and that our intervention can produce desired and undesired effects, even in unexpected places. This systemic understanding influences how we work.

The basis for cooperation at onion: Consultancy Network is mutual trust, openness and concern, an interest in what the other partners are doing and in the possibility of joint professional development. We work together for our clients, we exchange know-how and experience and we learn with and from each other.

The partners in onion are all independent from a business point of view and each is responsible for his or her own products and for marketing them. We are linked by a network because in this way we can achieve added professional and personal value for our clients and for our professional activities.

onion: Consultancy Network was founded in 1991.
