I agree, I hadn't heard of BPM before but reading about in the article, it's something we refer to constantly and is probably the most important part of the supply chain analysis.

It seems to me BPM is one of those terms that pops up occasionally but is a very useful discipline. You really have to use it throughout all levels of a corporation to make it effective. Like TQM, BPM is only as good as its implementation. Good points made in this blog!

Personally, I can report a vision similar to prabhakar, moving on results mindset could help business and corporation's performance. In addition, there is a couple of other trends/ topics for possible evaluation: how to measure bpm performance and main reasons for engaging a specialized partner for outsourcing bpm services related to a specific sector.

One of the key advantages of BPM as I see it is that it makes the organization result oriented and not work oriented.  The basic organization of any manufacturing company is like a set of physical departments - Purchase, stores, production, quality Assurance, sales, despatch, service. Where as BPM looks at the functions to be acheived by the whole manufactruing set up to fulfill the client requirements. So a BPM  works like a general manager of a factory who ensures that all the departments work towards achieving a single goal , that of catering to customers orders.

BPM not only helps a flexible supply chain but also breaks the boundries between the departments and make the whole organization work towards their final goal.

I think BPM is a powerful tool. How or where the readers can learn more about it ?It is really impressive that the BPM could react with the employees during the process."it is not your skills that make you special, but your skills combined with the appropriate tools make you special"
