Business process management

# Business process management (BPM) is a field in operationsmanagement that focuses on improving corporate performance bymanaging and optimising a company's business processes. It can therefore be described as a "process optimization process."

(BPM) is a systematic approach to making an organization's workflow more effective, more efficient and more capable of adapting to an ever-changing environment. A business process is an activity or set of activities that will accomplish a specific organizational goal.

Integrated Planning and Fulfillment

# Accenture Integrated Planning and Fulfillment helps clients to turn their supply chains into engines that drive their business strategies, sense, shape, and respond to demand from customers and end consumers. This approach balances the tradeoffs between service levels, operating expenses and fixed/working capital in order to move the right product through the right channels more efficiently, securely and quickly. Accenture takes a transformational approach to helping companies build world-class integrated planning and fulfillment capabilities. We help design the right operating model to integrate product development and channel strategies. Our approach incorporates network design, supply chain analytics, sales and operations planning, supplier and customer collaboration, all the way through to the tactical processes of order-to-cash.

Manufacturing Strategy and Operation

# Manufacturers must deal with complex global challenges such as increasing customer expectations, lower cost competitors, fluctuating commodity prices and an unstable global economy, all while depending on a network of partners and suppliers working seamlessly to meet these rising demands. Accenture collaborates with manufacturers to help them devise agile strategies, managing across a global ecosystem of suppliers, partners and customers

Services Strategy and Operation

# Leading businesses know that after-sales parts and services are a source of differentiation and income enhancement. Service supply chains are more complex than the typical finished-goods supply chain. Most require larger, more diverse inventories and tighter integration with field service and third parties. They also must accommodate inconsistent and uncertain demand by establishing more advanced information and product flows

Sourcing And Procurement

# Despite rapidly evolving cost-reduction and growth opportunities, many enterprises remain unsure about how to transform their sourcing and procurement organizations to reduce costs while maximizing value from supplier relationships. Accenture helps businesses and governments to address all sources of value creation—people, sourcing, processes and technology—to help a private or public sector procurement organization achieve high performance.

Supply Chain Academy

# While supply chains are all about moving goods, without skilled people managing the movement, supply chains can quickly develop weak links. Accenture’s Supply Chain Academy—the most advanced, most widely-used online supply chain learning solution in existence—has helped dozens of companies around the world accelerate the development of their people’s skills and knowledge so that they can tackle the challenge of executing on a supply chain strategy with confidence every day.
