Code Red and the Mess Hall—or the Difference between Tacit and Explicit BPM

Code Red and the Mess Hall—or the Difference between Tacit and Explicit BPM
While reading “IT-Enabled Leadership,” a report prepared jointly by INEAD, The European Institute of Business Administration and CIONET, CIO Network, Frits Bussemaker was reminded of the scene in A Few Good Men in which Tom Cruise asks Kevin Bacon where the description of Code Red is located in the Marine Manual. Bacon responded that It isn’t, but neither is a description of how to get to the mess hall and, somehow, the marines manage to find the mess hall. You’ll have to read the Article to discover how all of this relates to BPM and why the difference between tacit and explicit BPM is important.
