6 BPM Best Practices. How does this stack-up against your experiences? 
Modified By SuperUser Account  on 11/7/2009 12:32:21 AM)

I recently discovered an article by Sally Slack, an experienced practitioner & business / tech author who recognizes 6 best practices to make Business Process Management 'a heck of a lot easier':

1. Use a phased methodology.
2. Develop a process documentation guide.
3. Create a decision matrix.
4. Simulate, model, and test.
5. Communicate effectively.
6. Monitor the processes.

I thought there was some good fundamental practical sense here and that it could be useful to extend these best practices into an executable BPM model.

So I started to create a model on the article (bottom link).

I'd be interested to know, in your experience, are there other best practices you think should be added to this list? Can you suggest further How's to help make this an executable model that people can use day to day?

The author's extensive full article is embedded in the model 'More Text' below:

6 BPM Best Practices 

Kind regards,
Mark

How about;

  • Baseline the current state, and/or identify good measures of success
  • Seek feedback regularly

I’ve heard “The End is Near!” for Business Analysts for almost 20 years.  Waterfall project management, with its need for formal requirements, is dead…a dinosaur…so 1990’s.  To be honest, that’s mostly true.  With the publishing of the Agile Manifesto in 2001 there was no need for a 2-inch-...
Business analysis is used to identify and articulate the need for change in how organizations work, and to facilitate that change.
