In regards to business process modeling the question should be, what is not important with this technique? To answer the question, one important benefit that it can offer is the awareness for the organization. There are many times that a business will follow a process because that is all they know. They have followed a specific process, it works so they do not look into it or figure there could be a “better” way of doing business.
This is very common within organization. One company questioned believed a system was holding up much of their work, to find that it was the organizations processes that were outdated and needed to be reviewed. The importance of business process modeling, in this example, can give a clear definition of what “they are supposed to do, how they are supposed to do it and what might be the exact role for every team member” (5 Key Benefits, N.d.). It also ensures that “their processes are optimized and are running like a well-oiled machine” (5 Key Benefits, N.d.). Looking at a business process model allows for management to see a different view; it can paint a clear and vivid description of how business is running. If management does not enforce the processes or the goals of the organization, then that my friend, should have a new sign listed above ones office stating 'under new management'.
A process model can help any systems analyst by allowing management to explain each process step-by-step. Processes can be reviewed and questioned and can possibly offer a better alternative if one finds a method not required or no longer needed. It can also allow for improved processes throughout the organization (Rouse, 2012).
