Beth Gold-Bernstein Series: Increasing Business Velocity

Sponsored By:


Business process management (BPM) and the Real-Time Enterprise (RTE) are certainly all the rage these days, but businesses have grown weary of three-letter acronyms - they want results. What can BPM actually do for them? How does it actually bring competitive advantage to the firm? And companies dont want these questions answered in highbrow Harvard-speak. In this webinar, we look beneath the hype curves of BPM and the RTE, and in plain street talk describe how BPM enables a company to become a time-based competitor. Well explore time as the next source of competitive advantage, and how BPMs strategy-execution (SEx) machine, the Work Processor, can be used to turn up your business velocity. You dont want to miss this Webinar.

Why You Should Attend:
  • Learn how to describe BPM so that even the technology-challenged business person can understand its significance and benefits
  • Learn how to make the case for BPM in plain business-speak
  • Learn how BPM can actually bring competitive advantage to the firm

More and more business people are using computers not only much more broaderly, but also much more deeply. As a result IT people are knowing/learning business. Business people and IT people are getting closer as a result of the focus on business processes as the center of today's IT practice. The process-orinted view is one of the most promising ways to eliminate the gap between business people and IT people. This is the book that explains, in a quick and easy to read format, why IT matters more than ever.
