Companies around the world are being challenged to improve performance, reshape operations, and adapt swiftly to new opportunities. With an abundance of improvement methodologies and frameworks like BPM, BPI, Six Sigma, Lean, and Executive Dashboard, many question where to begin.

It presents a practical methodology that enables your organization to build a measurements framework with the ability to not only monitor events, but also continuously improve and refine those events by providing a feedback loop for analysis, goal, and strategy adjustments. This measurement framework can be customized and linked to your organization’s overall strategy to provide critical feedback on improvement efforts.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, annual productivity has been increasing for decades—but innovation always has to be found to keep on that growth curve. Innovation rarely occurs in a vacuum however— innovation requires not only thought, but a baseline of optimized processes, and an organization that strives for continuous improvement in value. The 21st century move to precise business process modeling, focusing on processes that implement business capabilities, enhances the ability to find, produce & optimize value-creating processes; but it requires rigor, focus, and is itself a business process. In clear prose and with straightforward connection to real business cases, this book explains an approach to business process performance improvement that belongs in every manager's toolkit; every manufacturing, IT, sales & marketing process can benefit from opportunities to optimize and innovate, and Joe Raynus explains how it's done.
