Free PDF Poster: Definition of BPM

Fully explained in the Foreword by Keith Swenson - as featured in Passports to Success in BPM

Business Process Management practitioners everywhere are intensely interested in the new modern Definition of BPM.

Why? Their jobs depend on it.

How can they deliver a successful BPM project if they don’t understand the very definition of BPM?

This year, led by Keith Swenson, WfMC Chair, a number of experts worldwide came together, and worked out a new "modern" and comprehensive definition for Business Process Management

"Business Process Management (BPM) is a discipline involving any combination of modeling, automation, execution, control, measurement and optimization of business activity flows, in support of enterprise goals, spanning systems, employees, customers and partners within and beyond the enterprise boundaries."

CAUTION: The definition by itself cannot convey the meaning, if the terms are not explained. 
The comprehensive explanation of all the terms defined and explained is published in easy-to-read full text in Passports to Success in BPM in the Foreword by Keith Swenson.

In This Book, You'll Learn Why (and What):

  • BPM is an activity, a practice
  • BPM is about improving processes
  • BPM is done by people concerned primarily with improvement of the process
  • Participating in a process is not doing BPM
  • Implementation (coding) of the process application is not BPM
  • Making a suggestion for process improvement is not BPM
  • Improving a single step of a process is not BPM

Read the definitive book on the latest on BPM which puts it all in perspective:
