BPMethods Publishes Business Process Management Strategy Guide
Helping technology professionals to run BPM programs more effectively, BPMethods has published its unique Business Process Management (BPM) strategy guide.
Revealing important relationships, which are often overlooked in many works on BPM and quality management, the Strategy Guide introduces, and successively builds upon, the proven work of business and academic thought leaders. It teaches how to formulate business strategy, analyze competition, focus operations, manage performance and adapt to change. Through workforce collaboration and collaborative objectives, it explains how to organize, empower and motivate people.
“Business process management and improvement, like any initiative, must start with clearly defined goals and objectives. Resources such as people, business processes and information technology then need to be structured and aligned correctly if goals are to be achieved,” said Carl Lehmann, founder and principal pnalyst of BPMethods. “But for some organizations business strategy and execution drift apart. Processes are designed and technology is deployed without regard for strategic plans. Misalignment can be costly.”
For business and technology professionals entrusted with initiating and running BPM programs, the Strategy Guide - Using Best Practices to Align Business Strategy, People, Processes & Technology is a must read. With this, companies can learn the fundamental principles upon which successful business process improvement projects and continuous improvement programs are based. Management teams can approach BPM with the mindset and rigor of world-class practitioners by learning them.
Recently, the company announced general availability of its business process portfolio management system. The PORTFOLIO Approach for Continuous Process Improvement & Management provides software templates and management tools, enabling companies to classify, document and scorecard their business processes as a portfolio of strategic assets. With this latest offering, management teams can learn how to structure a continuous process improvement program to manage performance and outcomes, increase quality and widen profit margins.
