Business Automation Essentials for the Nontechnical Professional
- Finds solutions to repetitive and time-consuming tasks
- Takes a more corporate view at a department level of the tasks that need to be automated
- Looks at hundreds of areas where companies have non-optimal processes and suggests solutions
Aims and Scope
This book is directed at managers of departments or even C level executives who may not be technical who need to understand what significant business process capabilities exist that can help your business unit or organization become more efficient. Today, most businesses have cases where best processes are not used to perform tasks. This is mostly due to the fact that the employees or managers are unaware of solutions to these problems. This book was written to give the non-technical person an understanding of options that can dramatically improve employee productivity and eliminate brute force solutions that tend to be used over and over.
The book is divided into two parts. The first part is dedicated to tasks that many employees face that without technical knowledge tend to be done by brute force. Often over and over. The reason for this type of wasteful behavior is examined and suggested solutions are given. Because Excel can be used to ameliorate a wide variety of business process problems, there is a focus on those solutions and an appendix on using Excel capabilities. Similarly, other software tools are examined. Part Two addresses business processes that are more global to the organization and the approach to examine processes by department or by significant areas where repeated tasks must involve IT for a global solution.
