Business process management (BPM) delivers significant benefits to organizations, but some organizations have faced many problems due to wrong turns along the way, according to Gartner, Inc. Gartner analysts have identified five BPM threats BPI (business process improvement) leaders need to be mindful of as organizations progress on their BPM initiatives.
"Considerable attention has been paid to the value of BPM and the dramatic transformation it can bring to an organization, but undertaking BPM isn't easy and BPI leaders and practitioners often stumble along the journey," said John Dixon, research director at Gartner. "BPM can be fraught with challenges due to the scale and breadth of skills, attributes and tools needed to be successful. BPM also presents innumerable challenges in areas such as organizational change, measurement systems, communications, business analysis, improvement methodologies and vendor selection."
With this in mind, Gartner has compiled five BPM pitfalls to avoid.
