To Gain a Competitive Advantage, Make BPM Inclusive

By BP Logix on Jan 10, 2014 7:42:30 PM

Some people may think of implementing business process management (BPM) within their organization as a purely tactical effort, one that serves the ‘process automation’ needs of an organization. The generally accepted wisdom is that given reasonable parameters, a BPM solution ‘should’ be able to address and manage internal processes. It ‘should’ also create a more efficient working environment; it ‘should’ reduce the number of steps required to achieve a satisfactory solution. It ‘could’ or ‘can’ also lead to optimizing those processes that are being automated. Certainly those are characteristics of a BPM tool, but if that's the extent of one's vision, then that is a short sighted vision.

Organizational Change and BPM, Part 2: Do You Have a Process-Focused Organization?

By BP Logix on Nov 21, 2013 11:14:00 AM

In today’s competitive market, you, or we,  would be hard pressed to find executives who do not want their companies to be better organized and more efficient. Most C-level leaders pepper their speeches and memos with messages that implore employees to find smarter ways of working, techniques that will maximize their business process improvement efforts and reduce or even eliminate repetitive tasks. The hope is that somewhere between "working smarter" and “a validated bottom-line improvement” some actions will occur that make that vision a reality. Unfortunately, that middle ground between desires and outcomes is usually where the best laid plans often go astray.
