The optimization and control of business processes is also called Business Process Management (BPM) or Business Process Modelling (BPM). In BPM, the activities of employees are set up in a certain way so that the results are focused on achieving goals within an organization. It’s related to the benefits of enterprise architecture, but these benefits will be dealt with in another post. These can be goals such as the improvement of innovation, quality and efficiency. To achieve these goals, organizations are heavily dependent on IT. By means of BPM the focus is on the most important strategy and goals within an organization. But what are the biggest advantages of Business Property Management for organizations? Especially for start-ups and smaller organizations BPM is an important way of doing business because they have to deal with smaller budgets and want to become profitable in a fast way. You can divide the advantages of Business Product Management into three groups.
One of the first results of introducing BPM in most organizations is increasing efficiency. This is due to the fact that many companies still often use manual work instead of machine work, poor communication between departments and the lack of monitoring of all business processes. A fresh look at the organization helps companies to come to terms with the inefficient way of working.
As soon as an organization becomes more efficient, BPM can also ensure that this results in effectiveness. By working efficiently a certain activity also has more effect. This gives the possibility to work faster, make decisions faster and perform the work even better. At the moment that all processes are effectively executed based on the strategy of the organization, an organization becomes more profitable and competitive.
In an ultra-competitive world in which we live, the importance of flexibility is more important than ever before. Organizations that don’t grow with us and don’t respond adequately to the developments around them are quickly lagging behind. Responding to change is one of the most important spearheads within an organization when BPM is implemented.
Sometimes an organization cannot ignore change because new business partners use a different way of doing business. In addition, it can also happen that legislation demands that an organization adapt its way of doing business. A recent example of this is the arrival of AVG Compliancy, where agile architecture could be very relevant for your organization!
