Business Process Software & the Evolution of Business Process Management Concepts

New Ways of Working

The discipline that we know today as Business Process Management (BPM) has evolved from the concept of business process re-engineering that emerged in the 1990's and the Six Sigma practices developed initially by Motorola in the 1980's. These founding concepts focus on analyzing and optimizing processes with the goal of using information technology to automate non-value-added manual tasks — and to removing variability and standardizing business processes across an organization.

    Business Process Software & Continuous Improvement

    Value Creation

    Most companies invest in information technology systems as a way to speed up existing business processes and automate procedures that are most likely outdated. Replacing labor-intensive and paper-based processes can deliver real benefits to a business. One way to think about incremental process improvement can be formalized using a Theory of Constraints approach to continuous improvement. The idea is to define the goal of your process and to systematically identify and eliminate "bottlenecks" in reaching that goal through a repeating cycle - until the constraint is gone. This approach is most useful for improving frequently-used processes with high impact.

      Process Innovation

      Where the true power to create game-changing processes resides, however, is in the ability to step back, re-think existing processes and create new ways of working. There are hundreds of examples of game-changing business process innovation; Dell didn't invent the PC, they invented a process for consumers to buy direct and customize their purchases; FedEx transports packages, but their tracking systems is what gives customers visibility and confidence; Amazon didn't invent books - or commerce for that matter, but it pioneered the process of buying online. Process innovation may be the most important outcome of the next generation of BPM evolution.

        Business Process Software & The Why of BPM

        A Focus on Business Goals

        A key strategy of Business Process Management initiatives is to align processes with business goals. Business processes can be an organization's most valuable asset and optimizing those processes can maximize business productivity, growth and competitiveness. When an organization has the right BPM software tools - and the right perspective - it can develop automated processes that deliver greater returns - and more quickly. A good business process software program can also give companies the transparency and process intelligence to anticipate how process changes will impact performance and competitive strength.
