Dynamic Business Process Management in the Knowledge Economy

Creating Value from Intellectual Capital

This book describes modern dynamic business process management (dynamic BPM), which is considerably different from traditional BPM from 20, 10, or even 5 years ago. It demonstrates why traditional BPM is not sufficient in the knowledge economy (KE), while also highlighting the opportunities provided by dynamic BPM – the form of management that practitioners and academics deal with on a daily basis. This involves mastering and implementing e.g. case management, process mining, and RPA, and integrating them with knowledge management. But more importantly, dynamic BPM makes full use of the dynamism of knowledge workers: the people who actually create innovative products and services tailored to the specific needs of clients.

  • Describes modern process management, which is entirely different from that from 50 or even 5 years ago, by highlighting the opportunities offered by developing technologies and IT tools
  • Focuses more on innovations emerging from practice than on theoretical, academic reflection
  • Discusses the differences between the methods and tools for implementing static and dynamic processes, as well as their outcomes

The book was primarily written for those managers who see advantageous opportunities amidst the ongoing changes. Accordingly, it focuses more on innovations emerging from practice than on theoretical, academic reflection. In addition to helping organizations operating in the KE to prepare for and implement process management, the book is intended as a source of inspiration for process management researchers and iBPMS system vendors.
