How is a BPM Project Achieved?

How can business process management (BPM) optimize business outcomes and performance?

BPM efforts have not been adopted as much as expected in the past decade, and process agility for operational excellence is still a distant goal for many enterprises. Extensibility issues and a lack of road maps are issues, as well as a series of economic events and general market instability that have redirected the spotlight to process optimization as the key to a sustainable profit model.

Nine critical challenges in adopting a core BPM approach are discussed, and several steps leading up to a successful BPM rollout for optimized business outputs are also given.
