repeatable process

In project management, a repeatable process is a set of actions that can be easily duplicated. 

In this context, a repeatable process in an information technology (IT) project can be a business process, a workflow schematic, a template, a programming instantiation or a reusable program component. Repeatable processes allow a project team to make efficient use of project components that have proved to be successful in the past and reduce unnecessary variations that can tie up time, effort and budget.

Key steps in developing repeatable processes include:

  • Understanding the organization's goals, objectives and stakeholders.
  • Documenting the current business processes.
  • Discovering significant process gaps and variations.
  • Applying insight toward the development of repeatable processes that align with the organization's goals and objectives.
