Ovations aids establishment of BPM Chapter in South Africa






Company Listing: Ovations »

Ovations, which in 2008 won South Africa’s inaugural BPM Excellence Award, is playing an important role in establishing a Business Process Management Chapter in South Africa aimed at advancing BPM understanding and adoption throughout the country.


At a function held in Johannesburg on February 16 - which was hosted by Ovations - a six-member steering committee was formed to run the chapter, including Marcus Hodel, an Ovations consultant based in Cape Town.


UK-based David Lyneham-Brown of the BPT Group assisted in setting up the chapter, drawing on his experiences at setting up similar BPM chapters in the UK and Australia.


According to Hodel, the chapter will be focusing on the following important objectives:


  • Setting up standards for methodologies and tools
  • Exchanging information between vendors and users
  • Acting as a sounding board to discuss BPM-related matters
  • Getting a feel for new trends in the market place
  • Discussing and adopting best practice in the industry
  • Assisting in the promotion and growth of BPM
  • Promoting professional development activity and interests of BPT across all sectors of business and government in Southern Africa
  • Promoting membership of the SA BPT Chapter and its activities, events and publications
  • Creating regional forums with an interest in developing and promulgating BPM thinking and practice, to communicate, meet and exchange information
  • Encouraging group members to bring original comment and observation on BPM matters to the wider membership
  • Serving as a reference point for professional information regarding all aspects of business process transformation
  • Providing contact points/ an expanding network for members
  • Actively seeking opportunities for expanding the SA BPT Chapter role and effectiveness globally by organising professional events and by attracting new members

"There's a lot of scope for BPM to grow in South Africa and the chapter will certainly be able to play a useful role across a number of aspects ranging from education and information to adoption and implementation," says Hodel.
