Real World, Theory and Application

Passports to Success in BPMFrank Kowalkowski of KCI provided a features chapter in this book titled ‘Using Analytics to Identify Process Opportunities’. In the opening paragraph under the heading of ‘Process Performance and the Business Enterprise’ he focuses on process performance management and improvement. Here is the opening paragraph.

Since processes are critical to business execution, process performance management and improvement have become two key aspects of BPM for improving business performance. These two key process approaches form the basis of enterprise transformation, integration and consolidation within the enterprise. They also support integration across enterprises and form the foundation for e-commerce, e-government and enterprise excellence. Organizations are good at assessing due diligence regarding financial, market and legal issues. However, studies (Michael Porter and others) show that most structural changes requiring integration fail due to operational (read process) and/or cultural incompatibilities. Both of these issues can be addressed with some core process and cultural analytics.

The book sponsored by the Workflow Management Coalition (WfMC) is in their BPM series. Copies of the book are available via Amazon or directly from Future Strategies, Inc.

BPM Transformation and Real- World Execution

Digital Transformation with BPMFrank Kowalkowski of KCI provided a features chapter in this book titled ‘Improve, Automate, Digitize. In the opening paragraph under the heading of ‘A Sensible Method of Change’ he focuses on an orderly method of change.

Here is the first Paragraph.

Have you ever wondered why organizations spend a lot of money, get involved with large projects for improvement or transformation, get outside help, and yet, still don’t realize the value they expected? Then, several years later, things seem to get on track or they get worse. Did the management learn anything? Every time a new technology, method or other ‘hot thing’ comes out, organizations try to take advantage of it before the competition. Think knowledge management in the 1990s, AI in the 1980s, Y2K, ERP packages and so on. Now we have digitization, process automation and myriad other technologies pushing their way into the business space.
