What does a Process Manager do?

Process managers evaluate and improve the business process. They perform their tasks in multiple departments and work across all industries, although they most often work in manufacturing or production. Process managers ensure the efficiency of business operations and create and implement changes or improvements when necessary. They generate documentation of existing processes and improvements and forecast expected results of process changes.

Process managers analyze implemented changes and make further adjustments to workflow, schedules, or other protocols and processes as required. Process managers break down various business processes using flowcharts, manuals, and other documentation, which outlines their practices. They arrive at a big picture by assembling data and studying ways to improve it using steps to increase productivity, reduce costs, or make necessary changes to other aspects of the process. Process managers need a bachelor's degree in business management or administration, finance, or accounting.
