Editorial Reviews

Review

In our latest BPTrends survey, readers indicated that one of their major concerns was with how to tie corporate strategy together with BPM. Carl's book provides a detailed look at the ways one can do just that. It also provides managers with a great overview of how to solve the problems involved in creating and fielding new processes in this time of unprecedented change. Pack this book in your backpack as you set out on your process journey.
—Paul Harmon, Executive Editor, www.bptrends.com

Strategy and innovation meets real-world execution. Carl lays out a concise blueprint of techniques from the best practices in business process management and presents them in a way that is immediately relevant and useful to help solve the global challenges facing every business.
—Jim Hendrickson, General Manager, Global B2B Cloud Services Product Line (IBM)

Gartner defines BPM as a management discipline that treats processes as assets that directly contribute to enterprise performance by driving operational excellence and agility. Yet most practitioners struggle to advance their BPM efforts from narrowly defined projects into an enterprise program. Although incremental process performance improvements are delivered at a functional unit level, in fact, enterprise performance is actually sub-optimized. To achieve enterprise success, BPM leaders should pursue BPM as a discipline of disciplines, as Mr. Lehmann describes in this book. An over arching framework that integrates various management disciplines (i.e. Balanced Scorecard, change management), process improvement methods, BPM-enabling technologies, and governance over the rate of change is key to advancing BPM maturity and delivering enterprise performance gains. Mr. Lehmann’s book, Strategy and Business Process Management provides pragmatic guidance for creating such a framework.
—Janelle Hill, Vice President & Distinguished Analyst, Business Process Management Research, Gartner

This book helps the reader by simplifying an otherwise complex BPM learning curve. It accomplishes this by dissecting a logical sequence of proven techniques and best practices across different disciplines and industries, and applying them to rapidly evolving business strategies and performance metrics. There are numerous examples and checklists that drive home salient messages. The book further synthesizes its findings into a decision framework and tools that can help practitioners to plan better and consistently execute business strategy. It should thus be valuable not only in proselytizing the BPM concept, but as a reference guide for those embarking on the BPM journey.
—Dale Kutnick, Senior Vice President, Gartner Executive Programs

The best path toward sustainable competitive advantage can be elusive. Organizations must seek a direction that structures their resources to embrace customer centricity, fuel growth amidst change and turbulent markets, and instill discipline in managing the bottom line. Carl’s book offers key insights for assembling an organization’s people, business processes and information technology into an adaptive system. His common sense line-of-reasoning offers sharp contrast to typical ivory tower process methodologies and frameworks. This book reveals the path for all management teams tasked with creating and sustaining the foundation and practices for strategic business transformation.
—Binu Thomas, Director, Strategic Process Transformation, MetLife

Carl has captured the essence of what it takes to achieve game-changing performance improvements and sustainable business acceleration in today's increasingly competitive business environment. Continuous process innovation is imperative for corporate survival and Carl's approach to Business Process Management is unparalleled. From strategic business analysis to consistent on-target execution, this book is a must read for the entire management team of any organization.
—Scott Thorogood, Chairman, Aegean Group

Business Process Management – its principles, disciplines and enabling technologies – will be one of the defining agility and efficiency levers of future business success. Carl has delivered a solid and pragmatic prescription for connecting strategy with the reality of BPM mechanics and execution.
—Herb VanHook, VP of Strategy, Office of the CTO, BMC Software

This is a very useful resource for people interested in continuous process improvement and ensuring that your processes support your business strategy. It is probably most applicable to medium and large organizations. … a very useful book that summarizes and links together a number of different areas and approaches to strategy and process management.
—Alex McLachlan MBCS, in Book Reviews, www.bcs.org

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Richard M. Doane on June 12, 2012
Format: Hardcover
While business process management is the single most important facet of running a business, I find that too many business leaders fail to grasp the basics. What Mr. Lehmann does in this book is cut past the clutter to provide a crystal clear path that business stakeholders can follow. The cover's compass is correctly placed.
