What Is Business Process Management (or BPM)?
The Association of Business Process Management Professionals defines BPM as "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."
Simply put, BPM focuses on improving corporate performance by managing and optimizing a company's business processes, impacting an organizations cost control and revenue generation.
How Do You Benefit from BPM?
There are several benefits of implementing BPM. These benefits include:
