Heard about process frameworks but not quite sure what they are or why anyone would want to use them? Process frameworks provide a common language and approach for companies to compare processes, functions and activities to allow for a host of activites like benchmarking, standardization, and governance.
APQC, an organization that provides best practice and benchmarking information, has one of the world's most utlized frameworks, the Process Classification Framework.
