In a presentation given by Palmer, he said the WFMC looked at three things: innovation, implementation, and impact. “Innovation use of BPM technology to solve unique problems, creative and successful implementation of the advanced BPM concepts…successful BPM and/or workflow implementation methodology…and impact of the system on competitive positioning in the marketplace [were all looked at],” Palmer said in a presentation.
