FDBPM is a standard business process management methodology.
It’s practiced by many large and medium-sized organisations that have started using BPM
Although it’s low success-rate, the methodology has become midstream, and a leading practice in most organisations
In the 90’s it was used mainly by government offices, but in the past decade it has been embraced by the business sector, mainly by mid-level managers accepting mediocrity as a new type of business strategy.
FDBPM (Faith Driven BPM) can be defined in three short sentences:
1. I believe it will work.
2. I hope it will work
3. If it didn’t work – it wasn’t the design that failed, it was fate.
The methodology’s theme “Build First – Design Later” has been embraced by many successful programme and project managers,
The approach is more layback, less stressful, and enables creativity and independent thinking. This enables the project to run smoothly until the rework phase.
Unlike conventional methodologies, FDBPM needs no formal training.
“Go with your gut feeling” has been found as the most common approach, especially in first-time projects when introducing BPM into the organisation.
Eliminating consultants, and skimping on the design phase – enables the organisation to start developing quicker and enables the developers to spend more time developing from scratch during the rework phase.
Unlike other BPM practices that have embraced the agile development approach,
FDBPM used the waterfall approach: you approach the waterfall, enjoy the beautiful view of the water slashing down the cliff, and then kicked in the bum and sent free-flying over the waterfall.
Like other methodologies, it is important to learn the main building block quotes:
“Go with the flow”
“We will go into details later on”
“We are on schedule, except for the last bits”
“She’ll be right, mate”
Faith Driven BPM is the new BPM – Embrace it
