Recently read an interesting blog post by Mike Gammage of Nimbus talking about Leadership and how it’s crucial to BPM adoption and success.
‘Best Practice Process Leadership? Here’s How…’
Here’s a thought: What’s the difference between Leadership and Influence ?
Can the two be separate factors in contributing to BPM adoption and success ? Can you be a leader in your organisation but exercise little influence, and vice-versa can you be an influencer but command no leadership ?
There’s a difference in my mind and the two need to work together.
Given the collaborative and connected enterprise which is starting to emerge from the dark thanks to the social network integration with BPM(S) tools I think we need to look to those with the largest ‘Sphere of Influence’ as well as the traditional (and old) hierarchical leadership model for BPM success.
Let me know….
