The Who’s Who of The BPM Consulting World
Business Process Management (BPM) consulting companies work with two kinds of businesses: enterprises with revenues of over $1 billion and 5,000 employees, and mid-market companies with revenues between $100 million and $1 billion and employees between 1000 to 5000.
This article highlights the top BPM consulting companies around the world, but first let’s set some context.
