Best Practices: Centers Of Excellence For BPM
COEs Help Bridge OrganizationalSilos
by Mary Pilecki and Andy Salunga with Sharyn C. Leaver, Connie Moore, Colin Teubner, and Mary Ann Rogan

Businesses across all industries are looking to business process management (BPM) to help gain new efficiencies, create a more consistent customer experience, and provide better data insights. Yet many firms have multiple implementations of the same type of BPMtools, or their siloed departments don’t leverage work done in other divisions when improving processes. Forrester spoke with a variety of large firms adopting an emerging trend: developing centers of excellence (COEs) for BPM. We uncovered best practices in five areas: 1) executive sponsorship; 2) process methodology and governance; 3) staffing skill sets; 4) vendor alignment; and 5) key performanceindicators (KPIs).

Best Practices: Centers Of Excellence For BPM
For Business Process & Applications Professionals

BPM INITIATIVES ARE INCONSISTENT ACROSS LARGE ORGANIZATIONS Business process and applications professionals across all industries are looking to BPM as a technology and overallmethodology to improve their customer-facing and back-office processes.1 In fact, 53% of respondents in Forrester’s Enterprise And SMB Software Survey, North America And Europe, Q3 2007, indicated that they are currently using a BPM technology, and 10% of those not currently using it are planning to implement within 12 months.
