Checklist for BPM Project Success

Gartner identifies seven major guidelines for business process management projects


Egham, UK — February 24, 2010 — Research firm Gartner is offering a checklist for companies looking to ensure the success of their business process management (BPM) projects, advising that organizations must pay close attention to seven non-technology-based factors in order to hit the ball out of the BPM park.

"Regardless of initial willingness to pursue BPM and a host of major opportunities for improvement, business leaders could do well to hold back and focus instead on a few projects that will deliver highly visible success," said Bill Rosser, a vice president at Gartner. "Early, visible, concrete project success is especially important to the long-term acceptance of BPM as a valuable discipline."
