SarbOx puts BPM into reverse gear
Many experts claim the Sarbanes-Oxley Act regulating corporate governance will soon begin fueling BPM, especially Section 409, which requires organizations to provide real-time disclosure of material events that may affect performance. However, Section 409 has not yet gone into effect.
Once the federal government clarifies the application of Section 409 rules, experts believe SarbOx will drive BPM initiatives in reverse -- organizations will implement BPM as much to minimize business risk as to maximize business value. The twin drivers of performance monitoring will be a “carrot” -- optimize the execution of strategy -- and a “stick” -- minimize the risk of non-compliance.
