I definitely agree with you that all organizationshave processes.Reference:Krajewski, L. J., Malhotra, M. K., & Ritzman, L. P. (2015).OperationsManagement: Processes and Supply Chains(11 ed.).

I agree it is important for operational managers to improve theprocess and remove road blocks for gaps. I worked for a company that had agroup called First Choice and their main job function was to identify operationalissues within the company.

Our continuous improvement groupvisits any of our operating locations and seeks to increase efficiency usingToyota’s A3 problem solving process. The operation is measured for a baselineand potential gaps are researched. One gap is targeted and appropriate countermeasures are applied.Christopher HolderThread:Chris Holder Q12Post:RE: Chris Holder Q12Author:Posted Date:December 8, 2015 8:38 PMStatus:Published(Post is Read)I was thinking about this question, and I found it really hard to answer, becauseit seems to me that EVERYTHING has a process. The difference between aneffective operation and an ineffective operation is more about how organizedand efficient the process is. At my job there are usually multiple processesgoing on at the same time, and not always in the same direction. Mostly, thechallenge is in coordinating these processes so that things are managedsmoothly.
