How important is BPM? What is BPM Best Practice? What is Next Practice? What do I NEED TO KNOW to retain corporate health, enhance performance and build sustainable competitive advantage? How do I DO IT? Is there a METHOD? What are the pitfalls? What SOFTWARE should I use?
These important questions (and more) are answered in the new book, “IN SEARCH OF BPM EXCELLENCE”, already being dubbed as THE BPM BOOK OF 2005.
Driven by the “customer view” from bpmg.org community feedback and market analysis, BPMG compiled the most important questions plaguing executives, process owners, managers, project leaders, strategists, analysts and technologists. This sweeping effort further led to the realization that to answer these questions would require the guidance and insight of the leading thought leaders, methodologists, analysts and visionaries in the field of Business Process Management.
Now in final publication stage, with general release expected on or about March 25th, 2005, IN SEARCH OF BPM EXCELLENCE brings together 15 leading authors to address these key issues of greatest importance to the BPM community at large.
“We knew it would be a real challenge to address the breadth and depth of questions from the BPM community in a single book,” stated Steve Towers, Chairman and CEO of The BPM Group, “especially considering the diversity of expert resources we would have to bring to bear in getting the RIGHT answers. But the market clearly needs this resource so we stuck to our guns and made it happen – and in my opinion, the result is well worth the effort.”
Contributing authors for In Search of BPM Excellence include Peter Fingar, Steve Towers, Mark McGregor, Andrew Spanyi, David Lyneham-Brown, Dr. Pehong Chen, Terry Schurter, Roger Burlton, Ronald Ross, Adrian Sahlean, Vasile Coman, Jorge Coelho, Martyn Ould, Keith Harrison-Broninski and Michael McClellan.
The book covers where BPM originated from, BPM practice, the Real Time Enterprise, BPM Next Practice, Strategy and BPM, The 8 Omega Framework, BPM software, the Dynamically Stable Enterprise, Process Powered Self-Service, BPM and Continuous Improvement, Business Rules, Human Interaction in BPM, BPM in manufacturing, BPM Best Practice and more.
In Search of BPM Excellence answers the leading BPM questions, provides guidance for current activities, presents the important considerations for future action and opens the door to the most important critical thinking behind the key issues of corporate health, performance improvement, optimization, agility, transformation and sustainable competitive advantage. This book is recommended for everyone involved in BPM as well as those seeking to learn more about what BPM can mean to them.
