ComBank-StrEdge Advisory in BPR project

9 January, 2022

Commercial Bank PLC completed a two-year Business Process Reengineering (BPR) project recently with StrEdge Advisory, the business consultancy arm of StrEdge Group of Companies.

“Right technology is imperative here as customers want a quality service with least time spent on processes. Commercial Bank has created platforms for sustained improvement which encourage quick implementation and StrEdge consultancy was able to strengthen them further,” CEO and MD of Commercial Bank, S. Renganathan said.

Commercial Bank’s HR Department initiated the first project of the engagement and played an important role throughout under the leadership of DGM, HR of Commercial Bank, Isuru Tillakawardana.

CEO, StrEdge Group of Companies, Sumedha Wijesekera  said, “Although we are essentially a local consultancy team, we benchmark ourselves with the best global practices to suit local needs. Our high levels of understanding of the banking industry from Sri Lankan and global perspectives, coupled with strong connections made at all levels within the bank enabled us to drive a BPR project of this scale successfully, going beyond a traditional consultancy.”

While it is important to have global best practices in place, the ‘culture-sensitivity’ cannot be undermined.”
