business process governance

Business process governance, also called process governance or business process management (BPM) governance, is the use of rules to manage BPM programs and initiatives. 

Business process governance involves setting standards and priorities for BPM efforts, identifying BPM governance leaders and defining BPM project participants’ roles, all to improve BPM strategies. The ultimate goal of both business process governance and BPM is to optimize an organization’s business processes and make workflow more efficient and effective.

Business process governance includes the establishment of internal BPM centers of excellence or competency centers to share process-improvement best practices and spread awareness of BPM standards and priorities. Governance also works to monitor and document both the successes and shortcomings of an organization’s BPM initiatives. Business process governance is often overseen by teams made up of both business and IT professionals.
