STAMFORD, CT--(Marketwire - October 7, 2010) -  BPM Partners, the leading independent authority on business performance management (BPM) solutions, today announced the addition of a free new self-audit tool, the Business Performance Management Project Self-audit (BPM PSA), to BPM Central, the company's online resource center. The BPM PSA provides an assessment that can be used as part of internal project planning discussions for either new or existing performance management projects. The short do-it-yourself audit is most effective if a cross-functional team is consulted and serious consideration is given to the questions.

"Many performance management projects lack an overall plan," said Craig Schiff, CEO, BPM Partners. "If one does exist, it is frequently not in a format that can be easily shared with all the key stakeholders. This can lead to BPM projects that take longer, cost more, and are not as well received by end users. The BPM PSA can be a good place to start if you are considering either a new project or a new phase of an existing project."

The BPM PSA survey covers four general areas:

  • Project purpose
  • Scope and timeline
  • Current systems
  • Users and budget

The BPM PSA report is a customized, presentation-ready planning document with embedded best practices. An optional follow-up phone call can also provide additional information on project feasibility and a short list of vendors that appear to meet the project's high-level requirements.

BPM Partners also provides a comprehensive BPM Roadmap Workshop, designed to provide a comprehensive and strategic roadmap for Business Performance Management projects.
