We are changing a process in our company and I'd like to convey the message below to my clients. "We are trying our best to change this process without affecting dependent processes" . Is there a phrase or idiom I can use here to say that we are doing this process change with lowest impact to other processes?
- We are looking for / believe we have come up with a magic bullet.
magic bullet [compound] noun
something that cures or remedies without causing harmful side effects:
- So far there is no magic bullet for economic woes.
Although this doesn't zero in on the question, the idiom below might be of some use to you
On one's radar screen
In one's conscious awareness as a possibility or as an existing phenomenon:
The governor said that running for president was not even on her radar screen.
So, you could perhaps say that the other processes are not on/are out of your radar screen.
EDIT: Thanks to Jim, who brought to my attention that On one's radar screen doesn't quite fit the bill. As such, I suggest
In the cross hairs
being aimed at by a gun (such as a rifle) that has an aiming device with crosshairs —often used figuratively
The senator's voting record was in the crosshairs of his political rivals.
OP might thus say:
The dependent processes are not in the crosshairs of the process change.
Another way of saying this is:
The dependent processes shall remain outside the purview of the process change.
Merriam-Webster defines purview thus:
The limit, purpose, or scope of a statute
the range or limit of authority, competence, responsibility, concern, or intention.
