Mathias Kirchmer, Peter Franz: The Process of Process Management – Strategy Execution in a Digital World, BPM-D Paper, Philadelphia, London, July 2015.
Business strategies and operations need to consider scores of ever-shifting factors: from demographic changes, capital availability and legal regulations to technological innovations and an all present digitalization. Static business models do not keep pace with this dynamic change. Companies need a management approach that fits to this volatile environment. Organizations need to execute their strategy systematically and deal proactively with our “digital world”. In effect, they must know how and when to modify or enhance their business processes, which processes are best candidates for intervention, and how to move rapidly from strategy to execution. That’s where the Business Process Management-Discipline (BPM-Discipline) helps. The BPM-Discipline has become the “Strategy Execution Engine” of an organization. It delivers significant business value by converting strategy into people and IT based execution at pace with certainty.
The BPM-Discipline is implemented through the “process of process management”. Organizations look for a way to systematically establish their process of process management fast and cost effectively. This can be achieved using a holistic framework and reference model. This whitepaper introduces the BPM-Discipline and how it is implemented through the process of process management.
