Business Process Management
Business Process Management (BPM) is a disciplined approach to identify, design, execute, document, measure, monitor, and control both automated and non-automated business processes to achieve consistent, targeted results aligned with an organization’s strategic goals.
BPM involves the deliberate, collaborative, and increasingly technology-aided definition, improvement, innovation, and management of end-to-end business processes that drive business results, create value, and enable an organization to meet its business objectives with more agility.
BPM enables an enterprise to align its business processes to its business strategy, leading to effective overall company performance through improvements of specific work activities either within a specific department, across the enterprise, or between organizations.
BPM is both a management discipline and a set of technologies that support managing by process. A convergence of technologies for workflow, enterprise application integration (EAI), document and content management, business rules management.
Performance management, and analytics, are brought to bear a focus on supporting process-based management.
Business Process Management and Performance Management are merging as more and more process management groups begin to recognize the organization as a system of interacting processes whose performance must be balanced, and that must be the focus of fulfilling strategies.
Recent research studies confirm that Business Process Management (BPM) is rapidly evolving as the dominant management paradigm of the twenty-first century. BPM is now generally adopted in companies with more than 80% of the world’s leading organizations actively engaged in BPM programs, many of these on a global scale.
There is now enough published information that demonstrates that proven strategies, approaches, tools and techniques (including business process frameworks and maturity models) are employed by world-class, process-focused enterprises.
More and more of those engaged in enterprise performance management are realizing that it is the performance of the business processes, not the organizational functional units or a set of assets, that has to be their central focus in order to gain the true benefits of a performance management initiative.
