Welcome to the World of Collaborative Processes!
In many ways, collaboration comes naturally to humans. We have an instinctive grasp of the ways that collaboration can improve the outcomes of our efforts, and we understand that bringing people with different experiences, skills, temperaments, and knowledge together in pursuit of a common goal produces a better result in almost all circumstances.
In a workplace setting, the same principle applies. In fact, a significant component of our working lives is predicated on how effectively we are at managing our interactions and collaborations with colleagues and team members. No doubt anyone reading this can remember at least one training session or workshop designed to improve teamwork and communication, and therefore increase productivity.
The relatively recent explosion of web-based collaborative project management tools is testimony to the fact that people are looking for simple, usable ways to bring structure to their organization, improve project management, and operate more effectively as a team. What this type of team based project management software misses, however, is the capacity to take a step further, and allow employees to work collaboratively to define the underlying processes that drive their day-to-day work.
Collaborative Process Management with SAP Signavio
SAP Signavio Process Collaboration Hub as the heart of the Suite
As the heart of the SAP Signavio Process Transformation Suite, the Hub is a central entry point for all business processes and business process users.
Processes are published in the Hub in order to provide process transparency and more importantly, to provide a navigating structure for all employees through the company's business processes.
As a process focused interface, the Collaboration Hub combines different process-related information - and this can even be user group specific!
Using SAP Signavio Process Collaboration Hub
The Collaboration Hub allows users to quickly and easily share everything relating to their work, including documents, supporting materials, images, and process models. It can be considered as a single source of (process) truth.
Process transparency and coherence are essential for successful business transformation. Therefore, the SAP Signavio Process Collaboration Hub bundles all important information from all software components in one single place and makes navigation between the different areas especially easy.
Process Knowledge Management
Now more than ever, our world is quickly changing and companies need to be able to react quickly to external pressure, such as new challenges, changing direction or compliance regulations, to name but a few. Keeping employees up to date about what is expected of them is crucial to ensure the whole company is functioning as a unit. With the SAP Signavio Process Collaboration Hub, employees can quickly access information centrally; processes, documents, IT-Systems, responsibilities and process structures. A structured knowledge management system can be set up in the hub to avoid isolated solutions and manage information centrally.
Using the Collaboration Hub, sharing processes between employees is structured and no information can be lost between missed emails, slack messages or water cooler conversations. Responsibilities, roles, process hierarchies and tasks can be viewed easily, and your team can rely on a single source of truth. Hub users can use the comment function to provide feedback on processes. This helps to discover optimization potential and supports easy collaboration. Communication about processes becomes easy, asynchronous, collaborative and iterative.
Promote Process Understanding
Which processes have changed? Which tasks are pending? Which information is important for my work? Stay up to date and react in the shortest possible time. No matter if workflows, customer journeys or process mining - the SAP Signavio Process Collaboration Hub promotes collective process understanding. Everyone is informed, not only about the "what", but also about the "why" and the "how" in your processes!
