According to a recent study of The Gartner Group only 13% of business meet their yearly strategic goals. This means 87% of organizations prepare strategic plans and related goals – but they don’t achieve their objectives. In addition less than 1% of companies have prepared their business processes to realize the potential of our digital world. Hence the risk of not executing successfully on a business strategy becomes even higher.

The presentation shows how the discipline of business process management (BPM) addresses those issues and how it is established through an appropriate “Process of Process Management. It helps organizations targeting value in a digital world through cross-functional integrated business and technology initiatives. BPM becomes the management discipline of strategy execution.

The presentation discusses the value and key components of the BPM-Discipline. It introduces a patent-pending framework to establish and manage this approach successfully. This includes benefitting from the opportunities of an increasingly digital world. Results are significantly improved productivity and performance – and at the end a systematic execution of the business strategy. The power of the BPM-Discipline is illustrated using case studies.
