Robotics Process Automation (RPA) - Moving towards digital transformation

World is changing and its changing at a faster pace. Companies need to transform to be able to survive in this competitive world. Focus is more and more on reducing costs and bringing efficiency to the processes.

In this context Robotics Process Automation (RPA) seems to be a natural fit. RPA helps organizations bring outsourced work to onsite with atleast 1/3rd the cost of an offshore FTE. It helps organizations to automate their manual and repetitive processes effectively and with high accuracy and lower cost.

Let's take an example of invoice processing for an organization which might take 4-5 people to do the processing and it is also prone to human errors. On the average this company spends $5000 per month for this process i.e. $60000 per year. The same process can be fully automated (~15-20k) or semi automated ($30-35k). *The numbers mentioned are just for reference.

REASPro provides automation services in Asia-Pacific and based out of Singapore. We follow five step approach towards automation process:

1. Strategy We understand and document the existing processes for our clients. following which we conduct feasibility study of the processes and pick those which can be automated readily. We help define automation road-map for the organization and also the target state.

2. Prototype: Implement few end-to-end processes as a proof of concept which helps in socializing the technology and it's benefits across the organization. It can also be used to get buy-in from the senior management.

3. Process Redesign: Those processes which cannot be automated as it is, needs some tweaking. We at REASPro brings ample industry knowledge which makes it easier to work with the Business Owners and analysts. The target process is prepared and proposed for approval from required business heads. 

4. Automate Process; The modified or as-is automation capable process is picked up and documented. Once documented, the approved process is automated and deployed into the test environment where business users test it out with different input/output parameters. After successful testing the process files are deployed in production environment.

5. Support and Maintenance: REASPro also provides support and maintenance services to the deployed processes through maintenance contracts. It includes bugs, defects and/or change requests.

If you are looking for automation services for your organization, feel free to reach out to us.

Should Product Owner attend Daily Scrum meeting regularly?

The role of Product Owner (PO) is critical for the success of any Scrum team. PO is the voice of the customer and responsible for schedule, scope and cost. PO is a bridge between the business and the Dev Team. PO is the one who ensures that optimum business value is achieved. PO maintains the Product Backlog and prioritizes the items in it.  PO also ensures that crisp requirements are provided to the Dev team so that they can create quality product. PO is mandated to attend Sprint Planning and Review meeting. But that leads to an interesting question of whether or not PO attends Daily Scrum as well.

The main purpose of Daily Scrum meeting is to update fellow team members on the daily progress and report any issues/show-stoppers. Scrum Master takes a note of the issues and blockers and tries to resolve them after this meeting.

PO can attend this meeting on need basis and is not mandatory to attend. Even if PO is attending the meeting (S)He should be in a read-only mode and must not interfere. PO should avoid going into providing any clarifications and getting into discussion with the Dev team during this meeting. Following are some of the risks which might arise if PO starts attending Daily Scrum on regular basis and also interferes in between:

  • This might lead to PO micro managing the team which will be counter productive
  • PO starts acting as PM and we go back in traditional Project management mode
  • PO and Scrum Master takes total control of the team sidelining the team in one corner
  • Daily Scrum meetings over shoot stipulated time of 15 mins making it irrelevant to most of the attendees especially the Dev team
  • Adds a lot of waste as this meeting is held on daily basis

Overall, PO can attend Daily Scrum probably towards the start of the project while whole team is trying to ramp up the knowledge about the project and its domain. But once the team is mature enough that they have sufficient knowledge about the processes then it is a good idea not to attend this meeting regularly.
