Last month, I began a series on the life cycle phases - analysis, design, construction and deployment - of a business performance management (BPM) project. This column continues that series and focuses on the design phase.

The design phase of the BPM project is where the blueprint for the final system is drawn. It's where you turn the requirements gathered in the analysis phase into a flexible, scalable system that will be able to grow with the organization. The design created here will be the plan for the entire BPM system, both when it's implemented and into the future. Therefore, if the project team does its job right, the system will provide the organization with top-notch analysis capabilities that will allow it to make timely and accurate decisions.
