How Do Your BPM Metrics Measure Up?


While many business process metrics are “inside-out,” focused on efficiency, it can also be useful to look at them from the “outside-in,” focused on successful business outcomes. Accurate, relevant metrics are becoming increasing important to companies seeking to make smarter business decisions. As John Dixon, a Gartner Inc. research director, says: “BPM without metrics is just a shot in the dark.”

With the scope of process widening beyond traditional organizational boundaries to large-scale business networks, the dynamic nature of these networks will accelerate, contributing to the complexity that organizations will need to address. Plus technologies such as social, mobile, big data, analytics, and the cloud that are having to be applied to BPM further complicates matters. Approaches have to change from being reactive to proactive. To handle all of this should be intelligent software that uses business metrics and analytics.

This white paper takes a look at BPM metrics best practices, as well as how to establish a baseline and ensure BPM metrics support the organization’s key business outcomes. Read on to discover more about how using BPM metrics can help you achieve fact-based business innovation and transformation that can help your BPM metrics “measure up” so you can more easily achieve true business agility.
