Business Process Management (BPM)

Business process management (BPM) is a method of efficiently aligning an organization with the wants and needs of clients. It is a holistic management approach that promotes business effectiveness and efficiency while striving for innovation, flexibility and integration with technology. As organizations strive for attainment of their objectives, BPM attempts to continuously improve processes - the process to define, measure and improve your processes – a ‘process optimization' process.

  • Business Process Management (BPM) is a Team Sport: Play it to Win! (Paperback) by Andrew Spanyi
    Business Process Management (BPM) is a Team Sport: Play it to Win! (Paperback) by Andrew Spanyi ISBN: 0929652029

    Spanyi proposes that organizations need to consciously and intentionally work on transforming the mental models of the executive team from the traditional functional paradigm to a customer-driven model that is based on business process thinking. The book provides insight into why change initiatives like reengineering, continuous improvement and Six Sigma, when implemented piecemeal, are not nearly enough to achieve dominance in today's turbulent business environment. BPM is needed to provide the context for both change initiatives and the application of emerging technology, so that change programs can be deeply and fully integrated across the organization.
