BPM and BPI – Differences

Many people confuse Business process management (BPM-Business Process Management) with initiatives of Business process improvement (BPI – Business Process Improvement). BPI initiatives typically involve projects or a set of improvements at once on the redesign or adjust processes. Common methodologies of BPI include Six Sigma, Lean, Total Quality Management (TQM-Total Quality Management) or reengineering efforts style Michael Hammer. BPM, otherwise, implies a permanent and continuous organizational commitment to manage processes of the organization. Includes a set of activities, such as modeling, analysis, design, purposeful and intentional, performance measurement and transformation processes. Involves a continuity, an endless feedback loop to ensure that business processes are aligned with organizational strategies and expected performance.

The area of knowledge transformation involves changes in the business processes where common methodologies of BPI can be applied. Typically, BPI focuses on specific improvements or adjustments improvements in processes. However, the use of these methodologies of BPI does not imply that the organization is committed to the practice of BPM.
