Process methodology

A process-oriented approach and the Process unit as a function
At Lund University, we work with support activities in a process-oriented way. The Process unit at the Office of the Vice-Chancellor provides assistance with methods and structure.

Process methodology within Lund University

The Process unit works to coordinate and establish Lund University’s process-oriented approach and provides support to process owners and process managers. We use established methodology to facilitate and document.

It is mainly within our support activities that we work in a process-oriented way. Every process area has a process owner, who in most cases is also the head of division within the central administration.

For more information, see document on process roles in LU Box, in Swedish (PDF 72 kB, new window)

Main process map

The most comprehensive description of the University's main processes, management processes and support processes are illustrated in a main process map.

See main process map in LU Box, in Swedish (PDF 22 kB, new window)

Previously mapped processes

A number of processes, drawn up at a University-wide level, have already been mapped. See Processlist in LU Box, in Swedish (PDF 104 kb).

If you are interested in looking at the previously drawn up maps, please email Processkontoret [at] rektor [dot] lu [dot] se

The Process unit has also provided support with presenting the processes at a department level. The results of the processes, however, are owned by the departments themselves.

Benefits of using a process-oriented approach

Using a process-oriented approach contributes to a holistic understanding, common approach and streamlining and improvement.

Training in process methodology

Half-day training for all staff

For all employees who are interested, we provide a half-day training session on the topic “The benefits of a process-oriented approach” (in Swedish)

Find the training through Kompetensportalen

Specialisation for process owners and process managers
