Business Process Management – understand your company
“A bad system will beat a good person every time.” This quote of the honoured economist W. Edwards Deming illustrates the importance of a good organization. Because “If you can’t describe what you are doing as a process, you don’t know what you’re doing.”
That is why, Business Process Management is the key to success. But what is Business Process Management? Primarily, it is a method for managing the processes in an organization. It considers the methods, concepts and technology of the design and analysis of business process. An organization consists of humans, systems, functions, customers and vendors. For a successful BPM, you need to ask yourself the following question “Who is doing what, when, how and with what?”. If you can answer the following question, this is a key ingredient for working Business Process Management.
But in a big company with multiple vendors, sometimes over borders, you as a person are simply not able to manage all this information by yourself. That is when you need help of an additional Business Process Management system to keep track of your companies’ actions.
The lifecycle of Business Process Management
As somebody who works in business you know that the system is constantly changing. That is why, it is important to monitor the dynamics and change your Business Process Management. Consequently, you need to understand the different phases of the lifecycle of the Business ProcessManagement.
Starting with modelling and choosing the processes you want to improve and defining your goal. Afterwards, you need to implement the processes and just collect data. In the next step it is your task to monitor the data, and visualize your process information for the next step. Analysing is one of the most important parts of your Business Process Management. Here the collected data is evaluated, but not just on the basis of random criteria. The business strategy created in the modelling phase determines the criteria on which the existing data is compared to the target data.
