An Introduction to Business Process Management (BPM)

Business Process Management (BPM) is an approach that companies use to address improvements to the business process to get their work done, serve their customer base and create business value. It looks at the processes a company employs to deliver its goods or services to its customers and finds ways to execute better so it can ultimately benefit its customers. To get the most out of BPM, companies need to use business process management software to analyze their business processes, model how they work in various scenarios, implement changes, monitor the new process and continuously make improvements. BPM is broad and dynamic, and different methodologies have been used to optimize the effort. Benefits of BPM include improving business functions, measuring and adjusting operational processes and improving the productivity of staff.

Flexibility is essential for a business to maneuver the ebb and blow of the market, changes in technology or regulations. Business process management helps businesses stay competitive by pausing processes and making quick adjustments to get them back on track. It also helps them run a lean business by optimizing processes and reducing waste. Business process management (BPM) provides more visibility into business processes, helps businesses stay compliant and secure, and makes it easier to transfer business knowledge. To reap the benefits of BPM, businesses must start using the five stages of the lifecycle: design, model, execute, monitor and optimize.

Research is conducted by interviewing everyone involved in the business processes, studying documentation and knowing the business rules that apply. Standardize these steps and develop a strategy for systematically and continuously improving business processes.
