The five items that this BPM implementation best practices webinar lists are:

  1. Value chain
  2. Identification of key performance measures
  3. Performance metric driven decision making
  4. Removing constraints
  5. Improve before automation

The Integrated Enterprise Excellence (IEE) Business Management System provides the platform for addressing all these BPM implementation best practices.

The IEE system consists of nine steps:

How does the IEE 9-step system address the 5 points?

Value chain (ITEM 1) and Identification of key performance measures (ITEM 2) from the list of 5 items are addressed in step 2 of the IEE 9-step system; i.e., through creation of an organizational IEE value chain:

In an IEE value chain, performance metrics are linked structurally to the processes that created them. Process functions are shown as rectangular boxes. Performance metrics are represented as oblong shapes and have a line connecting them to their process functions.  The main functions of an organization are connected by arrows, while support functions have no function-to-function connections.

Performance metric driven decision making (ITEM 3) from the list of 5 items are addressed in step 3 of the IEE 9-step system; i.e., analyze the enterprise as a whole, including the identification of constraints.

Removing constraints (ITEM 4) and improve before automation (ITEM 5) from the list of 5 items are addressed in step 7 of the IEE 9-step system; i.e., identify and execute improvement projects. 


How can the IEE 9-step system be implemented with BPM and its Software?

Enterprise Performance Reporting System (EPRS) software offers a clickable value chain with updated predictive 30,000-foot-level metrics that have linkage to their processes and accompanying drill downs, which can have BPM process automation:
