This is a short summary of research looking at different approaches to designing efficient and effective operational processes. The research concluded that in general the best balance of effectiveness, rigour and expense is provided by the risk-based approach; and that the best technique to support this is the 'bow-tie' method, which it goes on to explain. It also considers some of the potential problems managers may encounter when redesigning processes, and how they can be addressed. The full report is available as a priced publication from Corven.
