Lessons Learned: Best Practices for a Successful Introduction of Business Process Management (BPM)

I have written an article for “Service Technology Magazine” regarding the following topic: Lessons Learned: Best Practices for a Successful Introduction of Business Process Management (BPM). Here is the link:ย http://www.servicetechmag.com/I64/0712-3. The article illustrates some rules how to do BPM correctly. These rules are very important for success of a BPM project. If you do not consider them, your next BPM project may fail too…

Here is a short summary for introducing BPM succesfully (for people who are short of time and not reading the whole article):

  • Rule 1: If you want to do BPM correctly, then be aware that your primary goal is to improve Business-IT-Alignment!
  • Rule 2: If you want to do BPM correctly, then do not try to realize it without a service-oriented Architecture!
  • Rule 3: If you want to do BPM correctly, then be aware that BPM is not just tooling, but an engineering process with a huge, iterative lifecycle!
  • Rule 4: If you want to do BPM correctly, then use it only when you really gain benefits!
  • Rule 5: If you want to do BPM correctly, then do NOT believe in BPM myths!
  • Rule 6: If you want to do BPM correctly, then use BPMN 2.0!
  • Rule 7: If you want to do BPM correctly, then choose the right BPM tool for the job!
  • Rule 8: If you want to do BPM correctly, then do NOT use it for systems integration!

Please leave feedback, if you have any other opinions or experiences.

    Must read for everyone starting on a BPM project, especially the last Rule. You might be interested in the bpmleader.com site as well. Perhaps you could link your blog?
