A Rigorous Approach

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Re-engineering or creating new business processes or organisational structures?  Need to identify IT solutions involving workflow, document management or Business Process Managament systems?   Preparing process definitions intended for a Quality Management System?  If the answer is 'yes' to any of these questions, then you need a copy of Martyn Ould's Business Process Management: a rigorous approach. 



Businesses must constantly adapt to remain competitive and cannot be held back by static IT systems. Riva is a pioneering method for business process management used to design, model, analyse and record. The methods described in the book work on a business level, but they are IT-orientated and will be invaluable to those who want to improve or design business processes or organisational structures to identify IT solutions, especially those involving BPM systems, workflow or document management.

"Martyn Ould has re-invented process modelling for the real-world.  Throw away pre-conceived ideas of wall-to-wall reengineering charts, workflow diagrams and arcane application logic.  The author shows us that processes are participatory, concurrent and mobile.  Their underlying formalism is interactive role-based computation.  With the advent of Business Process Management Systems (BPMS) this important book is essential practice for those modelling processes using languages such as BPML and BPEL."
