Overview of assessment

Critical aspects for assessment and evidence required to demonstrate competency in this unit

Evidence of the ability to:

identify a process to be re-engineered

prepare an analysis, documenting the impact of changes to the organisation

plan the re-engineering of the process in a manner that supports the strategic, organisational and change context of the process to be re-engineered

access to:

organisational structure and culture

organisational strategy

stakeholder analysis

ebusiness models

use of:

personal computer

analysis software and modelling software currently used in industry.

Where applicable, physical resources should include equipment modified for people with special needs.

Method of assessment

A range of assessment methods should be used to assess practical skills and knowledge. The following examples are appropriate for this unit:

verbal or written questioning to assess candidate’s knowledge of:

benchmarking and change-management processes

process re-engineering

review of documentation prepared by candidate analysing the impact of process re-engineering changes to the organisation

review of the process re-engineering plan prepared by candidate, detailing key performance indicators and implementation responsibilities.

Guidance information for assessment

Holistic assessment with other units relevant to the industry sector, workplace and job role is recommended, where appropriate.

Assessment processes and techniques must be culturally appropriate, and suitable to the communication skill level, language, literacy and numeracy capacity of the candidate and the work being performed.

Indigenous people and other people from a non-English speaking background may need additional support.

In cases where practical assessment is used it should be combined with targeted questioning to assess required knowledge.
