What does PLAN actually mean?
Processes, procedures and user satisfaction
Frankly speaking, PLAN is an art term and stands for PLANning. In other words, this means the planning of process steps, which is commonly referred to as workflows. This refers to any form of planning step. For example, the processes involved in content creation and release, the planning of orders to service providers, or any other form of process that can be implemented centrally.
In our daily work, many parties are connected with each other. Only if everything meshes perfectly in these workflows, everyone will be satisfied. We therefore create systems that help all participating stakeholders to have a plan of what they want to achieve.
One of the most important qualifications is that there are no decentralized processes anymore. There are certainly many systems and everyone has a preference for one specific way. But only if everyone agrees on binding guidelines can processes and workflows run as everyone wants them to: simple, fast and reliable.
If you have all workflow data in one system and in one place, you have a high degree of analysis capability. You learn from the data of the previous year and quickly recognize where potentials lie and how they can be leveraged. You integrate further steps into your workflows and improve your organization from week to week.
That’s the result: satisfied employees and service providers. In addition, there are much fewer drops due to misunderstandings, missing information, misunderstood briefings, etc. And the budgets can be distributed where they can be used sensibly.
