To say there’s been a paradigm shift in business process management is the understatement of the century! Every business owner or manager not only KNOWS this fact, but has experienced the results of the “shift” up close. Consequently, the paradigm shift in business process management has transformed the business world drastically, that few could imagine just ten years ago.
A paradigm shift is when a fundamental and/or monumental change or disruption occurs in current processes, models or perceptions. In other words, a monumental adjustment in norms, standards, thinking, patterns and set values, etc.
These paradigm shifts have frightened some business owners to the point of departing from the world of business. However, many other entrepreneurs perceived the “shift” as opportunities and have, therefore, founded new types of businesses that led to even greater paradigm shifts. One of the radical paradigm shifts has been in business process management software and process control.
