It´s a pleasure to announce the publication of a book on the integration of BPM with Business Excellence Frameworks, a project that we have had in the pipeline for a long time with my colleague Dr. Jorge Román. The book explores an effective strategy for Business Process Management applied to Business Excellence and Benchmarking within any type of organization.
Actually, Dr. Roman is in charge, in the role of an Excellence & Pioneering International Consultant for Dubai Police in UAE. This book, quite literally, would not exist without the Pandemic 2020. During the lock-down we had the discipline, perseverance, time and determination to finished and published our book.
The book will be accessible from June on Amazon and through our BPM Center.
An organization needs to control their business processes in real-time, otherwise:
- We do not know, if we are delivering the committed value proposition
- We do not know, what is the state of the process execution, without an analysis activity
- We can´t answer a customer claim immediately
- We do not know, if we are not leaving the allowed ranges (KPI´s)
- What we can´t measure, we can´t improve it
- You can lose control in order to determine if their goals are being met
The discipline that allowed to define and implement the business process logic for execution in real time, is called Business Process Management (BPM).
Business excellence models are frameworks (BEF) that, when applied within an organization, can help to focus thought and action in a more systematic and structured way that should lead to increased performance. Facing an increasingly turbulent and chaotic environment, more and more companies have implemented business excellence strategies and made quality a key element of their business philosophy as quality leads to improved business performance. The value of the Business Excellence Framework is intentionally non-prescriptive. It does not tell leaders how to manage their organizations.
Here comes BPM in play, as a recommendation to implement and execute a customized Business Excellence Framework.
