Business Process Standardization

Business Process Standardization, according to the Productivity Press Development Team (2002), is defined as a process that involves:

  • Setting the Standard
  • Reporting the Standard
  • Establishing adherence to the Standard
  • Encouraging the continuous improvement of the standard

The main results of Business Process Standardization are:

  • Loss reductions
  • Company training culture
  • Increased transparency
  • Variability reduction

Business Process Standardization aims to unify the procedures in organizations that use different practices to do the same process. This way, it is possible to achieve what’s called componentization, which is nothing more than the re-use of a process already established as a component (or sub-process) of another process, sometimes in another area or company department.[1]
