1055. A Day in the Life: What's It Really Like to Be a Business Process Engineer?
Steve H. Lawton
“As a business process engineer with Dell Computers, my main focus is transforming the way that the organization I work in is getting the work done–specifically making their business processes more efficient and effective. Of course the key to that is making the people within my business unit more effective at delivering the outcome that they want. This involves a number of different approaches and modalities, which help each individual work in the job roles that use their strongest talents and abilities thereby adding the greatest value they can and giving them the most satisfaction and highest levels of performance. As their individual effectiveness increases, so does their team’s and the company’s. They are happier and committed, as are our clients. Everyone wins.”
