Re: Gap Analysis 

Asking for a "vision" ain't going to work because they don't have one.   I repeat THEY DON'T HAVE ONE.    No one to date as done a systematic evaluation of manual and automated processes/tasks - and especially how they all interrelate - so they don't understand what they need.

They need you to take the lead.     Your first step is to demystify what is meant by "gap analysis".   A process/task is defined by its inputs and outputs.   And outputs from one process/task is input to another.    Understanding, systematically, all the inputs and outputs is your "gap analysis".

So, start at the highest level - the vision level - and decompose downwards  - focusing at all times not so much on standalone processes/tasks but how the processes/tasks interrelate.

Process mapping vs. process discovery is akin to perceived reality vs. reality; the former rooted in subjectivity, the latter rooted in verifiable data. Elements of process mapping creep into process discovery, restricting an absolute dichotomy between the two. However, the critical differentiator between mapping and discovery lies in the distincti...
