High Performance Process Improvement Book Excerpt:

High-performance process improvement takes process improvement to the next ambition level. The kernel of the substance is a generic process improvement process that operates under the strictest time, quality and cost constraints. Thanks to a modular composition and robust methods the scope may range from one single person to networks with hundreds of companies. This is realized via three high-class phases:network and company analysis and synthesis, process analysis and synthesis, the implementation, including process improvement education and training and the practical realization of the improvement potential. The presented methods contain mass customization features and a very advanced logic for optimizing the interaction of people, technology, information and material both in the process improvement process itself and the focus process. The book is based on an extensive R&D effort and thorough practical verifications in more than 75 companies in almost any business and in all sizes.

High Performance Through Business Process Management Book Excerpt:

This management book presents value-driven business process management as a successful discipline to turn strategy into people- and technology-based execution, quickly and at minimal risk. It shows how to achieve high performance successfully in a digital business environment. Static business models do not keep pace with the dynamic changes in our digital world. Organizations need a management approach that fits this environment and capitalizes on its opportunities while minimizing the related risks. They need to execute their business strategy fast and reliably. In effect, they have to know how and when to modify or enhance their business processes, which processes are the best candidates for intervention, and how to move rapidly from strategy to execution. This means organizations need to establish business process management as a real management discipline. The importance of process innovation, digital technology and people aspects, process governance, internationalization, emerging processes and the unique situation in mid-market organizations are some of the key topics discussed in this book. It ends with a comprehensive case study and a discussion about what process engineers can learn from jazz musicians.

Business Modeling and Software Design Book Excerpt:

This book contains revised and extended versions of selected papers from the Fifth International Symposium on Business Modeling and Software Design, BMSD 2015, held in Milan, Italy, in July 2015. The symposium was organized and sponsored by the Interdisciplinary Institute for Collaboration and Research on Enterprise Systems and Technology (IICREST), being co-organized by Politecnico di Milano and technically co-sponsored by BPM-D. Cooperating organizations were Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH), the U Twente Center for Telematics and Information Technology (CTIT), the BAS Institute of Mathematics and Informatics (IMI), the Dutch Research School for Information and Knowledge Systems (SIKS), and AMAKOTA Ltd. BMSD 2015 received 57 paper submissions from which 36 papers were selected for publication in the BMSD'15 proceedings. 14 of those papers were selected as full papers. Additional post-symposium reviewing was carried out reflecting both the qualities of the papers and the way they were presented. 10 best papers were selected for the Springer edition (mainly from the BMSD'15 full papers). The 10 papers published in this book were carefully revised and extended (following the reviewers' comments) from the papers presented. The selection considers a large number of BMSD-relevant research topics: from business-processes-related topics, such as process mining and discovery, (dynamic) business process management (and process-aware information systems), and business process models and ontologies (including reflections into the Business Model Canvas); through software-engineering-related topics, such as domain-specific languages and software quality (and technical debt); and semantics-related topics, such as semantic technologies and knowledge management (and knowledge identification); to topics touching upon cloud computing and IT-enabled capabilities for enterprises.

Steps to Improved Firm Performance with Business Process Management Book Excerpt:

​Business Process Management (BPM) has become a widely adopted management approach, prompting significant investments by private and public companies since 2000. Since neither the concept of BPM nor the factors leading to successful BPM initiatives are grounded in theory and also lack empirical support, Tahvo Hyötyläinen explores what business value BPM and BPM Systems can cause and how they can bring about improved firm performance. The author’s main implication is to show how to enhance the probability of success with BPM and its Systems. His research also adds to the understanding on how to increase customer-centricity –an empirically supported yet less studied direction of BPM.

Inverting the Paradox of Excellence Book Excerpt:

Over time, overemphasis and adherence to the same proven routines that helped your organization achieve success can also lead to its decline resulting from organizational inertia, complacency, and inflexibility. Drawing lessons from one of the best models of success, the evolutionary model, Inverting the Paradox of Excellence explains why your organization must proactively seek out changes or variations on a continuous basis for ensuring excellence by testing out a continuum of opportunities and advantages. In other words, to maintain excellence, the company must be in a constant state of flux! The book introduces the patterns and anti-patterns of excellence and includes detailed case studies based on different dimensions of variations, including shared values variations, structure variations, and staff variations. It presents these case studies through the prism of the "variations" idea to help you visualize the difference of the "case history" approach presented here. The case studies illustrate the different dimensions of business variations available to help your organization in its quest towards achieving and sustaining excellence. The book extends a set of variations inspired by the pioneering McKinsey 7S model, namely shared values, strategy, structure, stuff, style, staff, skills, systems, and sequence. It includes case history segments for Toyota, Acer, eBay, ABB, Cisco, Blackberry, Tata, Samsung, Volvo, Charles Schwab, McDonald's, Scania, Starbucks, Google, Disney, and NUMMI. It also includes detailed case histories of GE, IBM, and UPS.

Business Process Management BPM Book Excerpt:

Nowadays, an organization is expected to be not only effective and efficient, as it was formerly. Now, in addition, it should be able to adapt to the frequent changes driven by globalization, let us say, be agile. This business agility has become more important in these times of globalization. The organization that best respond to the fast-changing market, which is becoming increasingly frequent, will have better competitive advantages than those that fail to sustain the pace imposed by globalization. What are the tools that organizations are using to better achieving agility, effectiveness, and efficiency? The answer is more control and efficiency with the ability to manage change in their business processes, because these can create value for customers. BPM is an integrative discipline that comprises management disciplines and techniques. It involves the business layers and technology, including also management through processes, as an integrated whole. The structure of this book consists of two parts. «Part I, Fundamentals of BPM» describe the state of the art of the major BPM theoretical concepts. «Part II, Implementation for BPM» is dedicated to presenting the concepts of implementation, developed largely by the author. This second part considers the technological support in each of the BPM layers. The author shows how to implement the core principles of the discipline, which differs itself from traditional management. This book is for all professionals, whether they perform in the public, private or non-profits sectors who require or want to learn more about this process management discipline. It is also for students and academics of the industrial and computer sciences, and to all the business and administration Schools.

Data Management a gentle introduction Book Excerpt:

The overall objective of this book is to show that data management is an exciting and valuable capability that is worth time and effort. More specifically it aims to achieve the following goals: 1. To give a “gentle” introduction to the field of DM by explaining and illustrating its core concepts, based on a mix of theory, practical frameworks such as TOGAF, ArchiMate, and DMBOK, as well as results from real-world assignments. 2. To offer guidance on how to build an effective DM capability in an organization.This is illustrated by various use cases, linked to the previously mentioned theoretical exploration as well as the stories of practitioners in the field. The primary target groups are: busy professionals who “are actively involved with managing data”. The book is also aimed at (Bachelor’s/ Master’s) students with an interest in data management. The book is industry-agnostic and should be applicable in different industries such as government, finance, telecommunications etc. Typical roles for which this book is intended: data governance office/ council, data owners, data stewards, people involved with data governance (data governance board), enterprise architects, data architects, process managers, business analysts and IT analysts. The book is divided into three main parts: theory, practice, and closing remarks. Furthermore, the chapters are as short and to the point as possible and also make a clear distinction between the main text and the examples. If the reader is already familiar with the topic of a chapter, he/she can easily skip it and move on to the next.
