We are excited to announce the ADDI (Analyze, Design, Develop, Implement) BPM/BPMS Methodology. 


ADDI is the first and only formal iBPM project execution and orchestration methodology.


With over 1,500 formal tasks, ADDI is ready to help with the tough business transformation projects.  ADDI is also fleixible and adjustable - by removing tasks it can be customized to eliminate unneeded work and guide smaller business improvement projects.  If you need consistency, governance and reduced risk, ADDI is for you.

ADDI BPM/BPMS Methodology

ADDI is the first:

  • iBPM methodology
  • Wagile methodology (combining Agile and Waterfall techniques)

ADDI features:

  • Commercially available comprehensive BPM methodology that is fully scalable to support both large compolex projects and smaller improvement projects
  • Built in Microsshoft project with imbedded notes guiding tasks
  • Has an accompanying 275 page "how to" manual written by recognized BPM author Dan Morris, that aligns to the ADDI phases

Many companies today are faced with a desire to move aggressively into Business Process Management adoption but face daunting problems with knowledge acquisition, an understanding of how to perform complex BPMS based projects, and a lack of consistency in how BPMS projects are defined, planned or executed.

ADDI was built to relieve these and a myriad of related problems that result in high risk and questionable benefit.

ADDI – Control and Governance

ADDI is the first comprehensive, vendor neutral offering in the market. It is built in Microsoft Project and offers over 1,000 tasks organized into 7 phases. These phases are:

Phase I: Pre Start Activities

Phase II: Project Setup

Phase III: Architect – Model and Analyze Current Business Operation

Phase IV: Design Improvements

Phase V: Build

Phase VI: Deploy

Phase VII: Improve – Sustained Optimization

This task based methodology is supported by a detailed “how to” manual that discusses how the task groups should be performed. The manual also provides lists of data that will be needed by the task groups and lists of deliverables –along with a definition of their contents.

Broadly focused - Customizable (no overhead)

ADDI is business focused and blends activities from Business Architecture, Process Architecture, and Enterprise Architecture. At lower levels of detail it provides the framework for a very different approach to leveraging Lean and Six Sigma to implement continuous improvement and deliver sustained business activity optimization.

Of course, ADDI looks at all the activity needed by the most complex level of BPMS supported BPM projects through its 7 phases. But, because it is built in Microsoft Project, project teams can adjust it to a project’s complexity by deleting unneeded tasks. The remaining tasks are the foundation of the project plan. Just add resource types and their costs and estimate duration and you have a plan that drives a consistent approach.

The result is consistency and reduced risk.

ADDI is a formal methodology addressing the full BPM/BPMS project life cycle - including setting the stage for ongoing evolution and sustained performance.
