Business Process Management
Business process management helps organizations control processes to achieve their goals and to be successful. Once processes are implemented, they must be monitored, evaluated, and optimized to make sure they are still meeting the goals that they were designed to accomplish. A business that can successfully manage its processes is able to maintain a competitive edge while increasing productivity and efficiency and decreasing costs.
