After the excitement of selecting our regional winners for the Gartner BPM Excellence Awards, we were faced with the challenging task of deciding which of our regional winners would chosen as the overall global winner for Best BPM Initiative.

It is our pleasure to announce that the Global Winner of the Gartner 2013 BPM Excellence Awards, for Best BPM Initiative, goes to Bayer Material Science. They succeeded achieving an average BPM project ROI of 462% (over an average payback period of 1.56 years) and launched their own internal excellence award scheme called “ICE” (Innovation-Cost-Efficiency), which recognized those projects that generated either tangible benefits such as cost reduction and efficiency or delivered intangible benefits in an innovative way.

We would like to take the opportunity to thank you all for your submissions for the Gartner 2013 BPM Excellence Awards – we genuinely enjoyed reading each application we received and appreciate the time you took to write your application. It is thrilling to see how such a broad range of organizations are leveraging the benefits of BPM to meet their business requirements.

Finally please note that we will be running the awards again in 2014. To those of you who unfortunately weren’t lucky enough to win, we do encourage you to apply again. We will make an announcement in September when the 2014 awards are launched, so please watch out for the email and blog post. We recommend that you start thinking about your application now if you would like to apply; for the 2014 awards we will still be looking for evidence of significant business results driven by BPM and compelling stories of how your organization has benefited from BPM. N.B. If you are a 2013 winner, your reward is to take a rest from the awards in 2014 but we would welcome you to apply again in 2015!

In the meantime, we look forward to hearing your BPM success stories when we launch the 2014 Gartner BPM Excellence Awards Program!
