Hi fellow beepers:

As co-director once again of BIS' next Business Process and Workflow
Conference in Orlando in February 1996, I am in process of developing the
agenda and program.

This is *not* a general call for papers, but I would like to hear from
consultants and users who consider themselves candidates for speaking on the
following topics: (Or would like to recommend somebody)

1.Advanced Issues in BPR (a 90 minute tutorial)

2.Workflow Strategies of the Big Three - Lotus, Microsoft and Novell (this
could also be a 3 person panel.)

3. Workflow on the Internet: Case studies/Pros and Cons - A 2 person panel

4. The Virtual Corporation - A 2 person panel

5. Evaluating and Selecting BPR Tools - A 2 person panel

Vendors only sessions (the Users will be at the Product Test Labs)
1. Pricing Issues in Marketing
2. Is Imaging Dead?
3. Channel Marketing

If you'd like to participate in this highly successful conference, please do
NOT reply to this list, send responses to me at waria@gate.net. I would like
a short abstract (no more than a paragraph, please) on how you would
approach the topic and a brief bio.

Guidelines:
BIS Strategic Decisions' conferences are special because of the high quality
of speakers and the "value-added" depth they bring to the table. These are
no talking heads pontificating randomly, but analysts and researchers who
know their fields intimately and who can put the various aspects of the
industry into perspective for the rest of us.

The ever-growing audiences who attend BIS' Business Process and Workflow
conferences have come to know and expect this - they leave the conference
not only filled with new knowledge, but with insight and confidence in how
to apply that knowledge back at the office.

It is my opinion, however, that we need new faces presenting at our
industry conferences, and that there are many unsung heroes (of both sexes)
who have the qualifications and skills to bring fresh ideas and concepts to
our audiences. I'd like to hear from you.

Speaking at a BIS conference puts you in front of a highly qualified
audience of senior industry executives and decision-makers and is
considered valuable exposure for your reputation and career in this
industry.

If you would like the full draft program faxed or emailed to you before
making up your mind, I'd be happy to oblige.

Kind regards

Layna Fischer

Subject: Benchmarking Success Stories

I am interested in finding any cases you may be aware of where
benchmarking was the driving force behind a college or university
identifying and implementing significant changes in administrative or
academic practices. I imagine in some cases the benchmarking may have
resulted in initiating the reengineering of processes or functions.
Specifically:

* What was benchmarked?

* Against whom did you benchmark?

* What were the key practices identified from the benchmarking analysis?

* What quantifiable quality or efficiency improvements resulted?

Thanks for your input!

The California State University participated in NACUBO's Benchmark 1993
project. All 20 campuses and the system offices participated.

> * What was benchmarked?

Unlike the national project, we limited our participation to accounts
payable, admissions, central budgeting, facilities, financial aid, general
accounting, treasury and cash management, human resources, payroll,
procurement, registration and records, and student accounts receivable and
billing.

> * Against whom did you benchmark?

There were 172 institutions in the 1993 project; we made both extramural
(to representative cohorts) and intramural comparisons.

>
> * What were the key practices identified from the benchmarking
analysis?

> * What quantifiable quality or efficiency improvements resulted?

In a word, there were many positive results from benchmarking. 16 of our
Universities are participating in the 1995 project. We think that we
learned a lot from our first years efforts and know that this year's data
will be both more accurate and valuable. We also look forward to
longitudinal studies to get a better understanding of the positive effects
of the many process reengineering projects that are underway.

As the Assistant Dean for Graduate Programs, two years ago the Stillman
School of Business at Seton Hall University I conducted an internal
benchmarking study of the graduate business program admissions. Processes
such as inquiry response time, application decision time, and others were
calculated. Then the office's administration was reengineered using
flowcharts and diagrams, and a new computer system. The results were
impressive. We were able to reduce processing time up to 83% for some
processes. The project was summarized in an article titled "Benchmarking and
Continuous Improvement at Seton Hall" in the Journal of the National
Association of Graduate Admission Professionals (Vol. 6, No. 1) September
1994.

Currently, as Director of Continuing Education at St. Thomas Aquinas College
in New York I am conducting a national benchmarking study funded by the
Association for Continuing Higher Education. This project is benchmarking
the non-credit program administration at 300 institutional member schools.
The results of this research study will be returned to the participants this
Fall, and the presented next year at the ACHE annual meeting.

Improvement always requires change. Things that do not change remain the
same. Trying harder at the same thing gives you more of the same
things. If you lose 25 cents on each hamburger you sell, selling twice
as many is not a good idea.

Change never guarantees improvement. A change is not successful unless
it adds value by resulting in improvement. Just because something is
different does not mean it is better. Change can make things worse.

If employees feel punished by management because a change they
implemented did not achieve improvement, employees' innovation and
creativity for future improvement will wither.

If a change does not result in improvement, going back to normal ensures
no improvement. Improvement requires a different change.

I am interested in accumulating a list of universities/colleges that have or
are currently reengineering multiple student services similar to ASU whose
project scope includes: Advising, Class Scheduling, Recruiting and Admitting,
Financial Services, Registration, ASU Records as well as some infrastructure
processes on how students access information and how information is
disseminated to students. Specifically:

What processes are being or have been reengineered?


What was/is your budget?


What were/are your greatest challenges?

What senior executive sponsored the change initiate and what was the level of
their ongoing involvement in the project?


Thanks!

Subject: New BPR CDROM

Hello everyone!

First I would like to apologize to those of you on other lists since I have
also posted this message elsewhere. I've been following this list for
several months now. Judging from the discussions, many of us are looking for
additional sources of information related to BPR, tools, process modeling
and so on. I thought some of you would be interested in the BPR CD produced
by Phoenix Systems Synectics of Ottawa, Canada. I just finished writing a
review of this BPR Guide and have included it here as it gives you an idea
of the type of information that is available. This CD is quite unique and
represents a tremendous resource for those in the BPR arena.=20

The Phoenix Business Process Re-engineering=20
Compendium on CDROM

WHAT=92S IT ALL ABOUT?
by Ludmilla Parnell, CD, MBA

OTTAWA, CANADA - Looking for new sources of BPR information? There=92s a=
new,
special publication that has just been released on the market. It=92s a=
CD-ROM
produced by Phoenix Systems Synectics of Ottawa, Canada. If you think you=92=
ve
seen most of the literature on BPR that=92s out there, or if you=92re simply
searching for additional information, check out this BPR CD because chances
are, you=92ll find something new.

A year in the making, the CD was designed with the BPR professional in mind.
It is a compendium of varied BPR-related information, a virtual tradeshow on
a disk. What=92s especially new and interesting about this CD is that if you
happen to be on-line to the Internet while reading or referencing the book,
the boundaries of information become limitless. Whether you are an
executive about to embark on a re-engineering initiative, a management
consultant searching for the latest concepts, a researcher or a student
working on a paper, this CD is bound to have something for you.=20

Many BPR practitioners, for example, are looking for software they can use
to model business processes. Not only will they find a listing of some forty
products to help them in their search, but they will also be able to get
contact names and addresses, features, and even demos in some cases.

The Phoenix BPR CD has a number of attractive and fascinating features that
have been made possible through the latest advances in technology:=20

=B7 There is an easy to use interface, with lots of point and click buttons
for the user.=20
=B7 The CD has clickable, live hypertext. This means that if you are=
connected
to the Internet, you can click on the hypertext links in the CD to be taken
to additional places.
=20
=B7 There is an index which allows the user to search every word contained=
on
the CD.=20

=B7 The layout is very attractive and contains diverse types of=
presentations
ranging from a video to BPR tool demos, an Internet Guide to Re-engineering
resources, as well as a survey of BPR tools that is well-organized and very
easy to explore.

Here=92s a rundown of what can be found on the CD:

Market Survey of Modeling and Simulation Tools
The survey contains information about the products which can be obtained by
simply clicking on specific product names. Each product has detailed tabular
data for those who need a BPR tool and are exploring this area. There is a
description of the product as well as an overview of its features.

Software Demos
The CD includes ten BPR software tool demos of products that are in the
Market Survey. Some are complete working models, while others are static
demos or slide shows. In addition, there is a complete working model of the
Phoenix GEM enterprise modeling software and a tutorial to go with it.

EMS Video
Phoenix Systems Synectics has developed a modeling and simulation tool
called GEM which began with the Enterprise Modeling System (EMS). The avi
video explains the origins of the research which was done for EMS in
conjunction with Canada=92s National Research Council.=20

The Phoenix BPR Internet Guide
Phoenix has a BPR guide on the Internet (URL: http://www.phoenix.ca/bpr)
which has been downloaded onto the CD. This popular guide was originally
created to provide Internet consumers with hundreds of links to information
related to Business Process Re-engineering, Total Quality Management and
Process Modeling. With the introduction of this CD, this information is now
available to those professionals who do not have Internet access.

The guide has specific information on the Phoenix GEM Modeling and
Simulation software as well as many fascinating links to other great sites
around the globe that provide a lore of reference materials to the BPR
enthusiast and practitioner. The site has three main sections: Business
Process Re-engineering, Total Quality Management and Process Modeling.=20
Included are topics related to government studies, ISO 9000, benchmarking,
modeling techniques and many more. Bibliographies, references and links to
on-line bookstores that deal with BPR-related materials, are also included
in the guide.=20

This section of the CD can represent a goldmine of data even if you are not
on-line. There are numerous articles, book reviews and pages dealing with
various issues that can be accessed directly on the CD. For those who are
on-line, there are no limits... just keep searching, linking and looking up
new sites. The information available has a dynamic element as the sites you
link up to are updated and changed themselves over time.=20

This CD is a must for anyone contemplating a BPR project or researching
BPR-related material. So try this one out. When was the last time you picked
up a book that had unlimited information with live global connections?
Sounds cool? It is.

Subject: Press Release for SEE Fall '95 Conference

Press Release:


THE SOCIETY FOR ENTERPRISE ENGINEERING
(formerly the IDEF Users Group)

Fall Conference `95

In order to meet - and even beat - today's ever increasing demands
for global competition and maximum efficiency, many businesses are
adopting the practices of business process reengineering (BPR) or
process improvement as routine in both private and public sector
organizations. Since its inception in 1989, the IDEF Users Group has
supported initial BPR work throughout the United States. IDEF
(Integration DEFinition) modeling methods and techniques associated
with process improvements were the focus of the organization's
membership. Since then, the group has expanded internationally and
has grown to more than 700 members. The scope of the group evolved,
and now explores numerous techniques, associated methodologies and
seeks the integration of tools that support the various aspects of
enterprise engineering from a holistic point of view. Today, this
dynamic organization, known as the Society for Enterprise
Engineering, is addressing the challenges of reengineering the
enterprise for the next century, and serving the international
enterprise engineering professional community.

The Society defines Enterprise Engineering as that body of knowledge,
principles, and disciplines having to do with the analysis, design,
implementation, and operation of an enterprise. Enterprise
Engineering views the enterprise as a system of cultural, process, and
technology components that interact to accomplish strategic objectives
and goals. The Enterprise Engineering process addresses the critical
aspects of "how to design and improve all elements associated with the
total enterprise through the use of engineering and analysis methods
and tools to more effectively achieve its goals and objectives."

The Society for Enterprise Engineering announces its fall conference
to be held in the Washington, DC area at the Westfields International
Conference Center, December 4-7, 1995. The conference is an
international forum for presenting and discussing enterprise
engineering topics pertinent to business leaders, engineers, and
others engaged in research, analysis and practice associated with
enterprise engineering. Conference topics will include:

BPR as a strategy for Enterprise Engineering

Benchmarking Best Practices

Methods, tools and environments for EE

Reengineering techniques to leverage CALS technologies

Supporting technologies for Enterprise Engineering

Enterprise Engineering Change Management

The conference theme is "Implementing Business Process Reengineering
(BPR) Improvements". Therefore, the focus will be on success stories
and lessons learned by companies and organizations that have already,
or anticipate, going through the implementation and change management
process of reinventing themselves. The conference will be a great
forum for exchanging ideas and learning new approaches to business
process reengineering. The last conference was held in June 1995 in
Orlando Florida. Conferees concluded that there is no other such
organization or forum that offers the same technical substance and
high quality of presentations. Join other "enterprise-minded"
professionals and capitalize on the shared experiences of experts,
practitioners and newcomers seeking insight, tools, techniques and
methods to support your enterprise's future!
