Process management involves monitoring and managing the performance of, and risks and controls related to, operational processes to ensure the delivery of the strategy while operating within risk appetite.

By focusing on process management, organisations can improve their operational efficiency, become more innovative and respond with greater agility to the needs of the market. There is also evidence that process-managed enterprises are highly effective at cutting costs across the value chain.

From an operational point of view, many organisations have adopted process improvement methodologies such as Six Sigma and LEAN.
