I am a Process Architect:

With the DNE, process is king.

As a process architect, I am a key link between what a business wants to accomplish and how processes support these goals. Further, I support the specification of what information technology is needed to enable these processes. I am also a bridge between what is done today and what needs to happen tomorrow.
I am adept at several process modeling techniques. What makes the DNE stand out is that it makes modeling real. My models are not just posters for the wall – they are directly involved at every stage: analysis, design and testing, building, testing again, and implementation.
It is no secret that IT, users and business often speak different languages. I am not helping the situation if I reduce complexities and exceptions to bubble diagrams alone. The DNE allows me to connect my models to real information. This may be as simple as forms and screen prints, but it could involve any type of information, for example video of a swivel chair operation after a merger (one company I worked for went through 60 in ten years).
I am able to easily analyze different processes, based not only on the model, but also on the underlying information that I can capture. The DNE captures information not just at the file level, but right down to the level of a clip in a video, a sentence in Microsoft® Word, a cell in Excel®, a Visio® element, a Powerpoint® slide, etc. I can capture and use the information at the subdocument level and still leave the full document intact.
When I use the DNE, my design and build occur simultaneously. I can build the flow and alternate paths. I can add working fields. I can add process assets and leave space for artifacts when my design is tested by multiple users in the field.
DNE logical maps are not just pretty pictures. They are semi-automated processes that can be tested on the ground, like testing an airplane in a wind tunnel rather than just on the drawing board. The use of the maps by real users confirms the validity of the process.
The temptation with IT is always to overengineer, but with the DNE, process is king. When process can be demonstrated to support business performance objectives, then the IT objective is simple: reduce effort in the semi-automated processes based upon cost displacement – not upon abstract cost avoidance or revenue creation.
My models are also great job aids for users as interim steps to the total re-engineered solution.
