Gartner is now accepting nominations for the 2011 BPM Awards program and the winners will be announced at the Gartner Business Process Management Summit, April 27-29, 2011 at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront, in Baltimore, Maryland.

One overall winner will be selected as the “BPM Project/Program of the Year,” based on the compelling business results achieved with BPM. Awards in other sub-categories will also be made to award finalists.

Evaluation Criteria
Business results are the first requirement for any successful BPM program. The preferred threshold is that the resultant net benefits should be at least two time the costs. Costs include: resources, technology, training, etc. Your case study must include specific results and a detailed list of the project/program costs. Baseline metrics for the before process will also be helpful. Submissions that highlight competitive advantage or future benefit can also be submitted and should include projections.

Applicants will be further screened on:

Advancing BPM Competency
Sustaining BPM in an organization requires building the competency and having a vision about how BPM will function within the enterprise. This will help create enterprise adoption.

Furthering BPM as a Discipline
Spreading the benefits of BPM on a large scale requires demonstrating success and reinvesting returns in deepening the level of process improvement habits and skills.

Leveraging BPM Technology
While process improvement is not solely dependent on BPM technology, many implementations utilize BPM technologies.

Attaining BPM Metrics and Performance
The bottom line for process improvement is surrounded by solid goals and metrics to measure end-to-end process improvement, as well as functional excellence.

Delivering Innovative Solutions
Many organizations leverage process improvement for cost cutting and this is a staple for continued existence; however the best processes exhibit innovation for organizations and constituents.

Preference will be given to solutions that address organization, technology, and process improvement issues. These projects will showcase the applicant’s mastery of business process disciplines and technologies to manage process change across organizational boundaries.
