The following questions may help you decide. You may also wish to use
our "Is BPI the right approach?" worksheet.
Consider using BPI in situations at MIT where
- New challenges arise that require reevaluation and redesign of existing
processes or policies
- A current service or product no longer meets identified needs
- There are obvious inefficiencies, frequent breakdowns, or other indicators
that a process needs to be improved
- A new service of product is being introduced
- It would be helpful to have a structured framework to manage complexity
- It is necessary or desirable to create a process map and/or operations
manual that reflects current best practices
