“Momentum is a powerful force. With it, all things are possible. Without it, nothing moves.” – John C. Maxwell
When beginning your Robotic Process Automation (RPA) journey, it’s important to start with a plan. A Process Automation Pipeline is used to determine the series of steps or stages in automating a business process or workflow.
Conventional wisdom would mean starting with those processes that are highly complex and that possess the greatest potential Return on Investment. These tasks are typically time-consuming, error-prone and require significant human involvement. Automating these tasks can yield the highest ROI while also significantly improving process efficiency and accuracy.
The only problem?
Starting with these types of processes can short-circuit your RPA journey before it even truly begins.
It’s all about momentum, or lack of it.
As with any new endeavor, implementing RPA requires education. Just as it’s easier to learn a few simple recipes before attempting to cook a full-course meal, learning to automate simple processes before moving on to more complex workflows significantly shortens the learning curve.
Think of it this way. When you start with something less complex, you can gain some quick wins and show the powerful results of RPA to your key stakeholders. This builds the enthusiasm and buy-in needed for bigger projects and provides more opportunities to address change management needs across your team.
So, start small when designing your automation pipeline and build off the momentum created.
Beginning with Quadrant 1 or Quadrant 2 items will allow you and your team to rapidly learn the ins and outs of RPA implementation. With these quick wins under your belt, you’ll be ready for strategic RPA deployment in the “Maximum Impact” (Quadrant 3) items that will lead to the largest, highest-leverage results. Then, once you’ve firmly established RPA into these areas, you’ll be ready to address those Quadrant 4 items that are less urgent but still prime candidates for automation.
