More efficient control at the Swedish Fortifications Agency
In the spring of 2015, contracts were contracted Ekan Management of Fortifikationsverket to provide support in the work's further development of its processes. The purpose was to strengthen the process orientation as a powerful tool for effective control of the business towards set goals.
A project, with employees from the Swedish Fortifications Agency and Ekan Management, was started with the implementation in three phases:
The project implementation was divided into three phases:
- Situational Mapping: Initially, the work's current degree was mapped by process orientation, the main process map structure, system support and the organization around the process work.
- Vision Description: Based on the current situation mapping, a target image for the process's process work was designed. Within the framework of the target image description, questions were answered regarding, among other things, what degree of process orientation the agency wishes to apply, how the process organization and the improvement work should be designed, and how the process work should work to support the management of the work in a good way.
- Action plan for continued work: Finally, the project formed an action plan for how the work should work effectively to achieve the goal picture. The action plan included, among other things, an updated main process map, timetable and activities for implementation, as well as priorities in the upcoming work.
The project's work was carried out in close dialogue and with clear support in the management team of the agency. The action plan has been reported during the autumn and the Swedish Fortifications Agency is now ready to improve its process work in order to be able to manage the business more efficiently.
Anders Höier, assignment manager at Ekan Management, says that:
“The Swedish Fortifications Agency is a very good example of an organization that recognizes the importance of continually evaluating its working methods and control tools. An approach that enables continuous improvement and a business ready to face the future ”.
