Business Process Model WarsUpdate - Supply Chain / Value Chain Models

The latest addition to my list of business process models and frameworks is SAP and SAP's business solution maps. For years, SAP has provided a library of business processes as a basis for imlementation. In SAP's Enterprise Service Workplace, SAP provides graphic and drill down "solution maps" that encompass the broad range of value chain activities. While the legacy of the solution maps clearly shows the evolution from a technologically based approach (which is not a bad thing for a technical solution) the industry, cross-industry, and solution maps should not be overlooked by the business executive or analyst who just starting out.

Process models are the "standards" or banners in the escalating battle for the hearts, minds, and dollars of analysts, technologists, consultants, business process engineers, program managers, and business leaders.
