This book is a reflection of the comprehensiveness and maturity of Business Process Management. The global thought leaders and leading practitioners have come together to describe and discuss the main components of Business Process Management along the factors strategic alignment, governance, methods, information technology, people and culture.


Outstanding reviews for the Handbook on Business Process Management
The Handbook on Business Process Management received very positive reviews. Paul Harmon from says:”If you want to know where Business Process Management stands today, or where it is heading in the near future, this is the definitive source of the best available literature from most of the best minds in the field. It will stand, I expect, as the definitive overview until vom Brocke and Rosemann decide to release a second edition – which, at the rate things are moving, will probably require three volumes.
