Extreme Competition: Back to the Future of BPM—2012-A Very Special Year
In this month’s Column, Peter Fingar provides a summary of the literature that influenced the BPM movement. He begins with the First Wave in the 1920’s and proceeds to the Second and Third Waves in the 1990’s and early 2000’s. We have entered the Fourth Wave which Peter has dubbed, “Thriving in the Digital Pangea and Global Innovation Economy.” Read his Column to learn Peter’s insights into how organizations will need to adapt to survive in the Fourth Wave.
