To transform your company to a process-management enterprise:

 

 

 

 

① Overcome traditional functional thinking and obsess about enterprise-wide business process management (EBPM) and the end-to-end enterprise business processes (EBP) that create greater value for your customers.

 

Assess Your Organization's Progress Toward Excelling in Business Process Management

 

 

 

② Make process into a way of life. Create a process-friendly company by aligning resources, rewards, and structure around processes.

③ Establish business process management system (BPMS) and manage in process terms everything you do to deliver higher value to your customers and make your company better.

 

 

 

Establish process ownership and leadership. Appoint senior process owners to lead, manage, measure, and improve the processes.
