BPM

Consulting

Successful BPM solutions start with direct communications with the business process stakeholders – initiators, reviewers, approvers and fulfillers, as well as the process owner. Stakeholders understand process subtleties. Experienced BPM consultants understand process possibilities. With e.Strategy, a process-oriented methodology, consultants and stakeholders assess the rules, procedures, and information identifying the best process solution for each engagement.
