Business Process Model

Why BPM is the way to manage and control robots?

By |May 14th, 2018|

Robotics is the most business focused environment in the world. Why? Because the only thing robots know and do is business, simply by virtue of their design and definition. Just imagine a robot walking along a street or watching TV for a leisure. It is an oxymoron. The ability to make something outside of business […]

Continuous process improvement and BPM

By |April 2nd, 2018|

Continuous process improvement is regularly mentioned among top priorities crucial for success in modern business. Exactly this demand for consistent and directed evolution explains increasing focus of organizations on BPM technologies.

Continuous improvement is impossible without detailed analysis and elaborate business model in place. Only valid model, which covers all aspects of business, can serve as […]

Low-code BPM is the code of business

By |March 22nd, 2018|

I always wondered how appeared strong association between BPM and low-code solutions. As the name suggests, business process management is all about business and its processes. BPM has no direct relation to code.

What is code? In general terms, code is something tedious, cryptic and poorly recognizable. In other words, something insufficiently understood. In IT context, […]

Measuring ROI for BPM

By |March 20th, 2018|

By definition, ROI is the only measure of business efficiency and success of any business initiative, such as BPM. On most fundamental level the mission of business is to invest and return the money with a surplus value. ROI measures exactly this.

Think BPM. Understand your business.

By |February 27th, 2018|

BPM is not a new fashionable trend. BPM is not an IT solution. BPM is not a branch of knowledge. BPM is a form of existence of any company, regardless is it recognized or not.

Of course, a company doesn’t think of anything. But management does. Management can think of BPM or not.

If management doesn’t think […]

Process agnostic to digitization

By |July 15th, 2017|

The process of intellection. While BPM is an incredible technology to describe / model / automate business routine, imagination and creativity are principal irrationalities distinguishing real business from a perfect digital machine. No doubt, well designed business machine can become unrivaled in superior delivery of predefined business outcomes. However, it will never compete with human […]

Perfect process

By |July 5th, 2017|

Perfect process is an abstraction, which predefines and motivates all development of BPM.

Perfect process does not exist literally in most cases. Rather, it serves as an asymptotic, which represents a reference point for any process improvement. In this sense, perfect process is a cornerstone and an ultimate goal of process mapping, analysis and governance initiatives. […]

Best practices in BPM

By |December 23rd, 2016|

Best practice is a template or experience accumulated in previous BPM implementations. Any work can be started from a ground or by using an existing experience. As a rule, using previous experience is much more productive than starting from the ground. In this sense best practices in BPM can be considered as a sort of […]

Can anyone design own business process?

By |December 2nd, 2016|

Business typically uses standard tools and solutions but configures and adapts them to own specific. Same situation is with business processes.

As a rule, business does not start from a ground but reuses already existing patterns already established for a specific field or industry. In this case we have an implicit use of process templates already […]
