Came across the new BPM institute magazine,, and found the following diagram:

Some observations:

  1. It's first of all a nice overview of the improvement frameworks existing today!
  2. For some reason I always get a bit tired of the arrogant tone of voice of the Omega-6 and CEM/CEMM supplier (now Bennugroup). Well, I guess the above diagram tells enough - no trace....
  3. I am glad to see Lean high on the list. In my opinion a great framework.
  4. It would be nice to see this broken down by industry - for some reasons, in Finance, Lean is only slowly cathing on.
  5. It would be nice to see this broken down by "reason/goals for improvement". My suspicion is that we can link goals and methods still quite a bit (visibility - balanced score card, EFQM - Quality, ISO - Compliance, etc)

Great points made - what would be of equell interest is geographic spread.

I feel that the SixSigma is spread out across the western world, with the growth in LEAN happening mainly in North America.

We deliver an agile business process discovery tool - which is being trialled in equal volumes in the USA and UK - with the take up in the USA being the fastest.
