The Arkturus 7-Step Approach

Typically delivered within 30 days (dependent on availability and responsiveness of your team).

Step One: Plan

Project-start meeting with your key stakeholders, Arkturus project lead and data scientist. Out of that meeting a written project charter will be signed off by all parties to agree scope, objectives, resources and timing.

Step Two: Discover

Discovery sessions with your subject matter experts and relevant technical people to capture an overview of the process and identify available data sources.

Step Three: Define

Your Arkturus data scientist defines the data requirements – this is validated by your key stakeholders and the data is extracted.

Step Four: Visualise

The data extracts are processed by the Arkturus Process Mining platform and the Arkturus Data Scientist produces initial process visualisations.

Step Five: Validate

The initial process visuals are validated with your subject matter experts / stakeholders. Any adjustments required are made by the Data Scientist.

An Insights workshop is booked five working days from this point

Step Six: Knowledge Transfer and Insight

We work with your team to understand and flesh out the key insights that align with the project objective. Training is provided on the Process Mining platform and methodology, customised to accommodate your way of working. The Starter Project dashboards, interactive models and insights are presented at the Insight Workshop with your key stakeholders.   An improvement initiative(s) for implementation and tracking is identified at this meeting.

Step Seven: Action

The Arkturus platform is used during the 90 day period to assist with analysis and measurement while the initiative is implemented.

What happens after the Starter Pack?

The next steps are identified during the 90 day subscription period.  These can include: 

Continue: continue to use Arkturus for ongoing improvement initiatives for the process.

Expand: increase the scope for Arkturus to provide more resource to assist with other project deliverables (depending on internal resource capacity).

Duplicate: run another Starter Pack project for a difference process – we don’t put a limit on how many ‘Starter Packs’ you can run.

 NB: Additional resource cost and/or subscription costs to be advised.
