Course Objectives


Every organization is defined by many different business processes that describe the way it conducts its business. A business process can be described simply as a sequence of tasks that are performed in series or in parallel by a number of individuals and or computer applications for carrying out a specific business function. Examples of business processes are Order Processing, Claims Processing, Performance Reviews etc. Some of the processes are critical for the success of the organization and its competitive advantage. Others may not be that significant but still important for the stakeholders of the organization. Recent literature in the process world suggests that organizations should adopt a process-centric approach rather than the traditional functional approach to work with greater efficiency and effectiveness.

Business process management (BPM) uses technology to manage business processes. These new BPM systems are rapidly becoming significant because of their potential for improving the productivity and agility of organizations. BPM addresses the problems and challenges faced by every business person in very organization. Thus business process management is the discipline of modeling, automating, managing and optimizing a business process through its lifecycle to increase profitability.
