In the earlier presentation made by the nodal of\ufb01cers on 27th April 2009, it was decided that individ- ual vision documents of the verticals should be synthesized into\u02bbCorporate vision\u02bc which will be coordinated by the Director, PSCI. It was also decided that the nodal of\ufb01cers from all divisions will participate in a workshop at the Postal Staff College, Ghaziabad under the guidance of Director, PSCI for a week\u02bcs duration when they will devote their full time and energy to the BPR exercise and complete the mapping of \u201cTo Be\u201d processes of the respective divisions.

They were working in \ufb01ve different groups for the following verti- cals under the guidance of Director, Postal Staff College, on the BPR exer- cise as well as de\ufb01ning a combined vision for the Department of Posts.

The Faculty from MDI Gurgaon gave necessary support to the nodal of\ufb01cers during their stay at Staff Col- lege Ghaziabad. So far the divisions under the Mail vertical and the Support services group and the FS division (savings bank) have completed the mapping of the \u201cTo Be\u201d processes of their respective divisions, while other verticals/groups/divisions are yet to complete the process. The nodal of\ufb01- cers of the divisions which are yet to complete the mapping of \u201cTo Be\u201d proc- esses were requested to complete the same.
The vision document pre- sented by Ms. Manju Kumar, Director (Philately) on behalf of the all verticals / groups was appreciated by the board. However, clarity in the following was required to be brought in by the groups.
The vision was more of a synthesis of the various verticals\u02bc visions rather than a combined corporate vision. Therefore, the document needs to be further streamlined to manifest the outlook for the future from a holistic angle.
The vision has to be more re\ufb01ned keeping in view its acceptability for all the employees of the depart- ment.
Director, Postal Staff College, Ghaziabad was requested to coordi- nate the above exercise and submit the vision document after further re- \ufb01nement to the board for considera- tion.
Four verticals made the pres- entations before the board on a\u02bbTo be\u02bc sample process each.

Member (Technology) brie\ufb02y summed up the developments in the BPR exercise and requested the nodal of\ufb01cers of all divisions to complete the process of getting the documents vet- ted by the respective Members by mid June 2009.
