Lack of a clear definition

We must first have a clear understanding of what Business Process Management is. Although it is quite common knowledge that the positioning of BPM has been a point of heated debate for decades, right down to almost religious warfare. Commercial interests have made, and still make, a significant contribution in this confusion. Depending on who you ask, BPM is always something different and that makes the discussion difficult to conduct. 

Business process management (BPM)

BPM is a management discipline with the aim of designing, executing, monitoring and managing business processes in order to guarantee continuous improvement, innovation and growth. Most of the time coordinated by online tools. You can’t escape it, but good technology can really help a lot. Technology can really change people and the business itself. Have a look at lunch or that dinner and observe how often people fall back on their smartphone. Even if it is not social: the fact is that technology can indeed move people in a certain direction. In this case it might be useful to process information and communicate online.
