Accounting with SAP R/3
A process organization is an enterprise viewed from a "process" perspective. A Process Organization redesigns their processes first, and then they determine the optimum organization form needed to make the process work best. The goal of a process organization is to create a HIGH PERFORMANCE WORKPLACE, a high quality work environment noted for excellence in efficiency, effectiveness and customer satisfaction. With a focus on process, it is very common to see process organizations managing interdisciplinary WORK TEAMS instead of specialized units more commonly seen in traditional organization charts.
