||Process based management and activity based costing experience in internal security in the Nordic
Estonian Ministry of the Interior is looking for partners to a study visit about implementation of process management (i.e LEAN, Six Sigma, TQM) and activity based costing in Denmark or Sweden or Norway or Finland.
To give a little insight, then following things have been done in our ministries subordinates. Since 2010, Estonian Ministry of the Interior (MoI) has been adapting the practices of process management and activity based costing among its subordinates. So far, Estonian Rescue Board has described their processes and activities and adapted activity based costing practices. Same has been done in our Police and Borderguard, but without emphasising the costs yet.
The main drivers for Estonian project so far have been
1. What are the processes in departments? (How work is done?)
2. What do the activities cost?
3. Why do the processes cost that much? If we know the costs, then we can relate them to different type of goals
We would gladly familiarize us with the experience of police and/or rescue boards process management and activity based costing practises.
