Process success has many moving parts

Gluu is an integrated online platform that can help you and your client from the initial process mapping to operations. While it is receiving great reviews it is still just a tool. It needs real people to initiate the change in the organization and then to keep the momentum. Some of our customers can do this by themselves. Others are overwhelmed with their day-to-day operations. This is why we at Gluu would like to work with experienced consultants and process consulting partners.

As you well know it requires a lot more than process mapping to succeed with business processes. This is what Gluu covers:

Why use Gluu as part of my offering?

Because a lot of process consulting engagements end up as a few workshops and perhaps some brilliant presentations or documents. They end up on the client’s shared drive after the project ends. If this never happens to you then you may not need us after all. If some of your engagements end up like this then consider the value of a platform that allows you to engage client employees in large numbers and beyond the limits of time and geography that your projects normally face. Gluu can enable you to help your clients to increase their own capacity to change.

You know the saying:

“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; show him how to fish and you feed him for a life time.”

We believe that if you genuinely want to create long-term value for your client, establish a real relationship and turn your client into an ambassador, then do your utmost to make yourself redundant by addressing the root cause of the client’s issue. We can help you do this with a simple method and a platform that you can use as a basis for your method of choice – beyond the duration of your project.


4 good reasons to join

Gluu’s platform can help you to strengthen your offering and process consulting practice in the following ways:

1. Reuse your work across clients

Gluu lets you create a template account. This lets you easily distribute your best practices across your client network. See more

2. Use your own time more productively

Gluu automates most of the work with keeping information updated, change controlling and communicating it to the right people. This leaves more time for engaging with your client.

3. Keep in contact after the project

When you help to create an internal community of practice around roles, processes and work in general, then more of the conversation about issues, ideas and challenges will move online. This is your chance to coach through dialogue on an ongoing basis. You may also spot ideas for new projects with the client.

4. Increase your engagement scope

Have you been turned down in favour of a large consultancy? Change the game and tell the client that with Gluu’s online platform you can engage and involve employees on a daily basis. This is far more effective (and less costly) than a group of “outsiders” travelling around for workshops. This way you can extend your reach both in terms of numbers of employees and geography.
