Operational processes are aligned with the business requirements of an organisation.


Therefore, when organisations update or adopt new objectives based on organisational needs, customer requirements, or market demand, these processes are continuously revised to accommodate the changes.


Such process revisions can be considered to be an internal project.

Typical example…

In order to meet it’s increasing customer demands, a computer manufacturing company decided to start a new branch office.


The company plans to reach a break-even point in three years by achieving the desired volume of output from its new branch.



The operations to be carried out in the new branch include daily production, routine maintenance wage and salary credits to employees, grievance handling, logistics and supply of finished products to the market.
