About the Topic

The BPMA, on behalf of ASP - Boston, extends this special invitation to join in what we know will be an interesting presentation and conversation with Donald Byrne of METRIX411, LLC.

In every industry and section of the world, regulations of all types are on the rise. What are the strategic and operational implications of this trend? Where do these regulations come from and what are their strategic and operational implications?

This presentation will include a review of selected standards, a discussion of how they relate to other regulations, a review of the concepts of management systems, and the implications of this worldwide initiative. The issue of various types of auditing will be covered as well as the evolving business case for the adoption of standards.
