ebizQ: Lean and BPM

Post by
Scott Francis

ebizQ has a two part series on BPM and Lean - something we've written about in the past and our own Lance Gibbs is a proponent of:

Lean is actually a process of experimentation, rapid iterative cycles of learning and testing, where the next step, the next future state, is a hypothesis waiting to be tested before it is adopted. This is significantly different from implementation, where you select a "known" target state and budget time and resources to achieve it. Many traditional IT budgeting and governance processes resist this incremental, experimental approach ? it feels risky and uncertain. But the reason so many projects disappoint is that it is impossible to truly know what the final end state will be.


Exactly - it isn't about the end-state, it is about the journey.? Very appropriate for the BPM mindset.? The first part hits on a few other key points as well, including the idea that Lean is not just about cost-cutting (which sounds familiar to the BPM advocates out there).
