Productive sales forces make sales process improvement a core competency. Most do so without comprehensively reengineering their sales process. Instead, they find incremental improvement opportunities, test new approaches, and frequently assess results. Over time, these changes accrue as substantial benefits, and include:
Increased selling time
- Higher quality sales outcomes
- Faster execution
In this webinar, we examine a series of these ideas, presented by a practitioner panel. Topics discussed include how to identify improvement opportunities, approaches for testing and evaluating new tools, and other practices focused on improving sales process.
The stage-gate process is as ubiquitous in R&D as doors are in the real-world. But, like doors, stage-gate processes aren't always the best solution for filling a gap. They can be overly elaborate (leading to slowness), fixated on pruning rather optimising (leading to negativity), and lacking in flexibility (leading to missed opportunities).
Join our webinar as we explore:
- The shortcomings of the stage-gate process
- Potential alternatives that could drive more efficiency and productivity
This webinar is essential viewing for any innovation leaders who are looking to take their innovation strategy out of its comfort zone and to the next level.

Choosing the target journal is undoubtedly a major challenge for many authors. Should you choose an interdisciplinary journal? A top-tier journal in your field? Or an open-access journal?
The popular impact factor should by no means be the sole factor in making this decision. The important questions are who the audience of your work is and where your work will create maximum impact!
The right time to decide on the target journal(s) is well before you finish a manuscript. And once you have decided on the journal, the next challenge is to navigate the editorial process—which seems like a black-box. Editorial processes rely on effective interactions between authors, editors, and peer reviewers. Having a basic understanding of these processes may save you months of time, by helping you avoid unnecessary revisions or even rejections.
This webinar will provide a practical guide on choosing the right target journal and will demystify editorial processes from the perspective an experienced scholar and journal editor.
NOTE: This webinar will be delivered in CHINESE.
Master Data Management (MDM) and Business Process Management (BPM) are two significant investments that enterprises usually undertake to realize tangible business benefits by streamlining business processes and leveraging data as an asset. Wouldn't it be great if both these programs can align on people (stakeholders), processes, and technologies so MDM-enabled processes become simpler? Yes, it is possible by focusing on Data Governance and stewardship for the benefit of MDM and BPM. This webinar will cover basic aspects of MDM and BPM, potential conflicts in implementing both, and identify possible solutions to align BPM and MDM. The webinar will also cover how data governance and stewardship can play a pivotal role in facilitating the implementation of BPM and MDM.

Most organizations have complex processes that are invisible, thus hard to manage or improve. Each stakeholder sees only part of the process. Manual discovery through workshops, interviews, and review of existing documentation is costly and time-consuming, and rarely reflects actual process complexity. Process mining closes this gap by making the real process visible. Our process mining software Disco leverages existing IT data to generate a complete, accurate picture of the process, with actionable insight. Disco automatically analyzes actual process flows, highlights bottlenecks, shows all variants, and allows animated “replay” of the process flow, all done interactively, driven by process questions.
Anne Rozinat has more than eight years of experience with process mining technology and obtained her PhD cum laude in the process mining group of Prof. Wil van der Aalst at the Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands. Currently, she is a co-founder of Fluxicon and blogs at http://www.fluxicon.com/blog/.
Christian W. Günther is a process mining pioneer. He has laid essential technical foundations as lead architect of the scientific process mining platform ProM, and introduced the map metaphor to process mining in his PhD thesis. His “Fuzzy Mining” approach is the predominant process mining algorithm in practical use today.
Digital transformation requires organizations today to be both bold and agile to keep up with the pace of the market shift. Bpm’online invited Rebecca Wettemann, a world-famous CRM analyst & VP of Nucleus Research, to share her expert perspective on values of the process-focused approach to CRM during the one-hour webinar.
Recent studies predict that by 2017 about 70% of successful digital business models will rely on dynamic processes designed to evolve with customer needs.
CRM technology underpins nearly every customer-facing process today. At the same time, companies that are seeking the transformation, face certain barriers to change:
•Deficiency in pre-built customer-facing processes and difficulty in modifying them.
•Customization of business processes takes too long.
•Specific technical expertise is required to modify processes and better align them with strategic imperatives.
Does your CRM allow for changing customer-facing processes with minimum efforts in order to support your business growth?
How can you make the business case for a more dynamic CRM strategy?
Attend the 1-hour webinar to find out how to:
• Benefit from fast and easy process adjustment – no complex and time-consuming configuration by IT specialists.
• Timely adapt customer-facing processes in response to the rapidly changing business environment.
• Consistently test, modify, and improve business processes.
• Build the business case for transforming your CRM processes.
The development and application of continuous manufacturing processes for vaccines presents both great opportunity as well as significant challenges, both technical and cultural, for the global industry. The key drivers are manufacturing capacity and flexibility, speed to market, and improved quality through the application of Quality-by-Design and Process Analytical Technology (QbD/PAT). Given the diversity of immunogens (toxoids, conjugate and subunit vaccines, live-attenuated and inactivated viruses, VLPs, etc.), and the variety of unique processes currently utilized to produce either single- or multi-component vaccines, it is unlikely that the transition to continuous processing will happen overnight. Additionally, cultural challenges are faced whenever a new mode of operation appears to some as “too different”, especially in a traditionally conservative sector like the developed-world vaccine industry. That said, market forces, global climate change, and Nature’s propensity to fill unoccupied niches with emerging infectious diseases will undoubtedly induce a first round of pioneers to explore this exciting new design space, ultimately leading to a more nimble industry and more and better opportunities for protection for the global population.Read more >
