Many enterprises have recently been pursuing process innovation or improvement to attain their performance goal. To comprehensively support business process execution, the concept of business process management (BPM) has been widely adopted. A life cycle of BPM is composed of process diagnosis, (re)design, and enactment. For aligning with enterprise strategies, all BPM activities must be closely related to performance metrics because the metrics are the drivers and evaluators of business process operations. The objective of this paper is to propose a life cycle-based BPM framework integrated with the process-based performance measurement model, in which business processes are systematically interrelated with key performance indicators (KPIs) during an entire BPM life cycle. By using the proposed BPM framework, company practitioners involved in process innovation projects can easily and efficiently find the most influencing processes upon enterprise performance in the process diagnosis phase, evaluate the performance of newly designed process in the process (re)design phase, monitor the KPIs of new business process, and adjust business process activities in the process execution phase through the BPM life cycle.

최근에 많은 기업들이 기업 목표를 달성하기 위해 프로세스 혁신이나 개선을 지속적으로 꾀하고 있으며, 이를 지원하는 도구로 BPM (Business Process Management)이 많이 도입되고 있다. BPM의 생애 주기는 프로세스 진단, (재)설계 및 실행으로 이루어지는데, 모든 BPM 활동들은 성과 척도와 밀접한 관련을 갖고 운영되어야 한다. 본 논문의 목적은 프로세스 기반 성과 측정 모델과 통합된 생애 주기 기반 BPM 프레임워크를 제안하는 것이다. 제안 프레임워크에서는 BPM 전 생애 주기 동안 비즈니스 프로세스와 성과 척도가 체계적인 상관관계를 가지고 밀접하게 운영된다. 기업의 혁신이나 개선 담당자들은 제안 프레임워크를 사용하여 프로세스 진단 단계에서는 기업 성과에 가장 영향을 주는 프로세스를 용이하게 확인할 수 있고, 프로세스 (재)설계 단계에서는 새롭게 설계된 프로세스의 성과를 측정할 수 있으며, 프로세스 실행 단계에서는 성과 척도를 모니터하여 비즈니스 활동 들을 조정할 수 있게 된다.
