This assessment is evaluating students learning basics of business process management in organizations. The assessment requests students to develop a business process management plan for a particular case in an organization, a department or a project environment. The plan incorporates identifying the existing (As-Is) situation of the processes of the case, and a few possible future states (To-Be) of these processes for improvement on efficiency and other benefits. In addition, the students need to develop an ideal processes (Should-Be) plan to best suit the organization and the project. Furthermore, the students will provide a performance evaluation report based on the scenarios created in the “Should-Be” processes to complete this assessment.
In this assessment, the students will begin with identifying a process case in a professional working environment. The case can be from an organisation or a project the students participated in before.
