Workflow definition

20 Jul 2017 - Mickey Farrance

"Although BPM and workflow management address the same business needs, each does it in a different manner.

"Workflow management allows you to coordinate certain repetitive tasks and procedures to save time and do the work more effectively. Workflow focuses on people and instructions, describes the role of each individual involved, and allows you to organize your daily work processes. BPM, on the other hand, is a more complex approach to handling your business processes. It coordinates the entire organization and focuses on its processes to improve their efficiency. Keep in mind, BPM is not merely automation of business processes, but also each process’s continuous improvement. The fact BPM does however include workflow management as a component often leads to confusion."
