Recensioner i media
You've picked up the right book for just about any goal you have in process management. If you're an enterprise process architect or manager, Harmon tells you what you need to think about and do at the enterprise level. If you are an owner or improver of a particular process, there's an entire section devoted to managing particular processes. If you're charged with using IT to support processes, you are similarly in luck. The book should be on the desk, in the briefcase, or on the bedside table of anyone who believes business processes are an important way to understand businesses and make them better.
From the foreword by Thomas H. Davenport, Director, Process Management Research Center, Babson College
Paul Harmon has done a great job updating his 2002 classic. BPM has changed significantly over the past 5 years and Paul has integrated those changes with the interrelationships of six sigma, lean, ERP, BPMS, SOA, and other enablers. Paul makes sense of the proliferation of BPM tools while recognizing the fundamental management changes that underpin them. As a result, this book is an excellent tactical reference for cross-functional teams to implement and sustain BPM as a platform for business transformation and to execute strategy.

Paul Harmon is without doubt the best informed and most trusted observer of all things BPM. True to form, in this book Paul provides a comprehensive and insightful summary of the current BPM landscape.

It's a relief for process professionals to be able to move beyond theoretical BPM with case studies and find techniques and methodologies which provide great results in applied BPM. Paul Harmon's writing has been an invaluable guide for me for several years, and his methodologies in combination with the open-standard framework based on SCOR, benchmarking, and methodologies we have been using at Supply-Chain Council provide a complete end-to-end approach for organizations to take themselves not just to the next level, but to place themselves permanently on the top-level of performance. This is a must read for process professionals, whether you're coming at it from "the business" or "the IT" side, a "Wade-Mecum" for the Third-Wave Generation of process experts.
-- Joe Francis, CTO, Supply-Chain Council
Six Sigma plays a role in business process change -- but this role is often not well understood. Contrary to the proclamations of certain pundits, Six Sigma is not the be-all, end-all first and last word in process change. Nor is it an isolated tool used only for solving problems or optimizing performance within existing processes. It's more subtle than either of these extreme views, and it's critically important to get it right. Until now, no one has effectively addressed the role of Six Sigma ...
