Has anyone come across a stand-alone BPM department / function / manager within large companies and specifically oil and gas companies? If so, where does it sit within the organization i.e. under CFO, Corporate Planning department, Group Audit etc. or spread across all departments and what is the department actually called, if it is not ‘BPM Department’. If you have come across such a department, it would be interesting to know the scope of the department also. Thank you.

I work in a government organisation that is involved in Technical Vocational Education & Training - TVET. We have a department solely responsible for Organisational Systems and Processes which reports to the VP - Corporate Planning and Strategic Development.

In my case we have a department where organization and processes function is merged. In years of crisis there was a lot of changes - today our department is under HR sector. It is working suprisingly well. My personal opinion is that BPM department must be linked directly to the management board.Does anybody have implemented the process owners?

I work for PERTAMINA EP (Indonesian Oil & Gas Company). We do have function called System & Process - responsible for company business process development (analysis, modeling & system development) & SOP development. The System & Process Manager report to VP Organization Capabilities & Operation Excellence (OC&OE) and our VP directly report to President Director. Hope it helps. Thank you (^__^)

I work for INPEX (Japanese Oil & Gas Company). The BMS (Business Management System) reports to the GM for Corporate MS that belongs to the BSG (Business Strategy and Governance) group. We are the facilitators to develop the BMS content (processes and documents) for all domains (highest grouping of processes in the company). Hope this helps.

I've observed that it's often in a shared services organization. See Deloitte's report - where they mention that "companies such as BP, Shell, Pfizer, Procter & Gamble and Oracle ..." have implemented shared service. (from Deloitte - Shared Services Handbook - Hit the Road)
