A business process is a set of activities that are performed in a coordinated manner to accomplish a business objective in a technological and organizational context (Weske, 2007). Now if, to define a process I must clearly state the following: 

We should clarify that when activities are very large, ie have many many tasks and events can become threads, and these will form the same components as a process. 

Once defined aspects of the process to establish, it should be noted that the concept of BPM as a discipline of process management is broader, has clear and well-defined objectives, so any process should focus on achieving the following components: 

Achieve or improve business agility in an organization 

The concept of business agility is defined as the ability of an organization to adapt to the changing environment, through changes in their integrated processes. 

Greater efficiency 

The concept of efficiency is defined as the ability of an organization to achieve greater or lesser extent or strategic business objectives.

Efficiency is the ratio of the results achieved and the resources used, ie the degree of productivity of a result. The term efficiency is related to all indicators of productivity in terms of quality, costs and time.
