Robotic process automation is a technology that is increasingly being used in business organizations. However, the lack of vision and ambition in automation projects is making them less effective.
The importance of ambition and vision in an automation project
To achieve success in any project, you must always have ambition. After all, striving for goals is fundamental to achieving concrete objectives. However, many organizations confuse ambition with greed, mainly because they do not clearly understand what ambition is. Ambition is a willingness to face challenges and grow, while greed is having more than what is necessary. For an organization that is clear on the above points, it gains an outstanding position in the market, since ambition drives it to achieve the desired goals, becoming more competitive every day.
Similarly, having a vision of what you want to do is essential to achieving success in a project, without vision there is no leadership, there is no final picture, just a bunch of activities to be performed. The important thing about the vision in development projects in RPA implementations is to know what. when and why to implement it? Defining the scope of the automation and specifying what is not included clarifies why some processes or activities could be left out of the project.
The benefits trap in RPA projects
It is very likely that upon learning about all the benefits of an RPA implementation, many organizations decide to automate everything. That said, it is necessary to start small, intelligently, detecting and analyzing which business processes can be automated. In this case, the best candidates for automation are repetitive and routine tasks, such as the handling of large volumes of information. After this, it is necessary to define which activities are ideal to automate, when to implement them and when to implement each of the processes. It is also necessary to consider key factors, such as the time it will save, the frequency of the tasks, the criticality, and the effort it would take to automate them, so it is necessary to select only the processes that are most beneficial to the organization.
Optimal Technology and Business Processes as pillars of growth
Large companies know how to grow in terms of research and development, technology, and operating profitability, so they tend to have a clearer understanding of the path to follow to facilitate this growth. They are also clear that optimal business processes and the right information technologies are key to sustained growth. Having to choose which processes to automate is no simple task, as significant aspects must be considered to identify the most viable scenario for success, and these large companies usually know how to do it.
Large companies have come to develop and implement technologies that a few decades ago we could not have imagined, to mention a few are Google, Microsoft, and Facebook. This is possible thanks to the vision and ambition they had in creating and developing innovative projects that no other company or person could have, always looking for the most advanced processes and technology to improve the business and user or customer experience. That is why, when implementing an RPA technological project, it is necessary and essential to have a sharp vision of what you want to achieve, seeking to fulfill with the best tools the scope of expectations and objectives set towards a technological future.
