Strategizing Automation: Identifying the Right Tasks to Streamline


The excitement around low code solutions and technological advancements has made everyone eager to see automation advances. Since we are technophiles and using low-code technology is our course of action, automating our process is not only an exciting but groundbreaking move for us. Even so, we need to take a moment to reflect and consider: Automation is undoubtedly beneficial, but is it necessary for everything to be automated? As digital automation becomes more prevalent, the dilemma of how to discern which jobs are appropriate for automation and which ones are not arises. We should not put off taking the initiative to search for indications of various parallels among these pointless initiatives.

Effective automation does not eliminate human effort; rather, it creates a changing environment in which new skills emerge, with people at the helm as creative, imaginative, and strategic beings. Here are the steps I use to negotiate the complicated landscape of automation:

  1. Begin your automation journey with a comprehensive process plan. Use Process Mining to create a graphical representation of all your business processes and identify areas where time and effort should be allocated more efficiently.
  2. Routine Task Identification: This involves scanning recurrent actions clockwise. These professions are similar in nature and are portrayed as dull and time-consuming chores that few individuals would desire to repeat in their spare time, tasks that must be automated.
  3.  Separate routine processes. The most critical and sometimes overlooked issue is to classify normal operations. Divide them into two categories: those that require critical thinking and creative engagement, and those in which employees’ function in a procedural or automated mode, requiring low intellectual skills. Using criteria to pick automation candidates works best for tasks that do not require people to conduct cognitive processes often.
  4. Separate critical thinking tasks from non-critical thinking tasks to identify those that need complicated problem-solving, decision-making under ambiguity, and invention. These professions are typically less limited and case-specific, requiring humans’ unique creative approach.
  5. Risk Assessment and Strategy Formulation Briefly describe the hazards that may develop because of simplifying tasks that need an elevated level of intellectual and creative effort. Certain occupations may only be partially automated or have partially automated components, necessitating a hybrid approach in which technology complements rather than replaces human decision-making.

Conclusion: Strategic Harmonizing Automation.

This allows you to automate operations and enhance efficiency while maintaining the human part of your organization, which should always be there. Automation is a mechanism that allows us to soar, but if we are not careful, it may easily lead us down a never-ending cycle of repetition. It is about making it work–we strike a delicate balance and use automation to our advantage as much as possible while also highlighting the need for creativity and strategic thinking.
