In a recent article from Gartner, they predict that:
Between now and year-end 2014 an intensifying focus on process-related skills, competencies and competitive differentiators will increasingly separate process excellence leaders from the laggards among the Global 2000, according to Gartner, Inc. Gartner has identified some of its key predictions for business process management (BPM) in 2011 and beyond.
“A key theme in our BPM predictions for 2011 is the rising focus on making business process improvement (BPI) a core competency of the organization — and on the capabilities and tools required to gain that competency,” said John Dixon, research director at Gartner. “Increasing process skills in the Global 2000 will further separate the companies with enlightened process experts from those that are simply competent in the basics — and will intensify the negative repercussions and devastating consequences from public exposure of process weakness.”
It goes on to state that:
- Between now and year-end 2014, overlooked but easily detectable business process defects will topple 10 Global 2000 companies.
- By 2015, context-aware computing will be used to rejuvenate at least 25 percent of “commodity” enterprise processes that are currently perceived as “low value.”
- By 2014, process templates from “nontraditional application vendors” will be included in the shortlisted options for 70 percent of application purchases.
- General BPM certification will grow in value but will not be materially relevant to BPM hiring decisions before 2015.
