BPM - The Next Stage For Continuous Process Improvement - Podcast

Continuous Process Improvement (CPI) programs like Six Sigma and Lean have created over 100 billion dollars in savings and unleashed breakthrough opportunities in businesses and organizations of all sizes and types. But for many reasons, these methodologies have for the most part been implemented independent of enterprise information systems, severely limiting the reach and effectiveness of CPI. But now, Business Process Management (BPM) solutions are uniting the capabilities of process management platforms and CPI methods, enabling organizations to dramatically extend the best practices of CPI across their enterprise and throughout their value chains.

BPM leverages a new implementation paradigm, one based on business-IT collaboration, development with little or no code, and the built-in assumption of continual change. This Mediacast describes how to extend BPM to meet the needs of high-volume mission-critical processes and enterprise deployment.
