The two main types of business management systems are: integrated and separate management systems.
Integrated management uses a combination of several standards in order to reach a goal. It can involve various combinations of departments, principles, and so on in order to customize a beneficial plan. Successful management is typically easier to reach by using integrated management systems since it incorporates all, or many, aspects in a company, which can include employees, resources, processes and more.
Separate management systems are more applicable when a certain department is in need of a solution. Various focuses that can benefit from separate management systems include health, quality, human resources, data and finance. The most commonly business process management systems can be categorized into Information Technology, Human Resource Management, Knowledge Management and Financial Management.
Information technology requires the appropriate management of resources and making them readily available to those that require it. Typically, outcomes of this management system include incorporating new technology. In this case it is necessary to manage technology in the same way that employees are managed.
Human resource management focuses on the various processes involved regarding employees, including recruiting and inducting. In order for this process to work successfully it is necessary to form a detailed management system that encourages human resource managers to have a greater understanding of the process involved and the requirements needed to fulfill a certain role.
Knowledge management creates value by using the information known by employees, customers, suppliers and other key players. This information is then shared amongst the entire organization in order to benefit the organization.
Financial management arises due to legal requirements, where it is necessary to have accurate and details records.
Regardless of which system is required, the common thread between all business process management systems is that they bring about solutions to a specific problem that has a great impact on the organization as a whole. Common end results of successful business process management systems include: increased productivity and performance, as well as consistency in operations.
