Supporting Compliance Efforts
Are you preparing for an upcoming internal or external audit? Are you anticipating compliance and regulatory changes?
Documenting your business processes is a critical step in maintaining compliance with government, industry, or internal regulations. Visualizing how your process operates can help you identify where the compliance risks are and what can be put in place to mitigate those risks.
Doreen Evans Associates business analysts can bring together the relationships, systems, data, events, roles and business rules that make the organization work by building process flow maps. While these diagrams are similar to traditional “swim lane” process models and use standard BPMN notation, tailoring the models to show where systems support the process, to illustrate where business rules occur, and to document risk areas makes the information more complete and useful.
The goal is for participants to have a clear and coherent picture of the business process, how it works now, and (perhaps most important) how it can be improved. They can easily see where risks occur and where mitigation factors can be put in place to meet compliance and regulatory needs.
What work products can you expect?
- Industry-standard business process models in BPMN notation annotated to indicate risks and controls
- Reports on process risk areas, risk priorities and proposed risk controls that can be presented to regulatory agencies and auditors
