Process reference models integrate the well-known concepts of business process reengineering, benchmarking, and process measurement into a cross-functional framework.

A Process Reference Model can:

    * Capture the "as-is" state of a process and derive the desired "to-be" future state
    * Quantify the operational performance of similar companies and establish internal targets based on "best-in-class" results
    * Characterize the management practices and software solutions that result in "best-in-class" performance

A Process Reference Model contains:

    * Standard descriptions of management processes
    * A framework of relationships among the standard processes
    * Standard metrics to measure process performance
    * Management practices that produce best-in-class performance
    * Standard alignment to software features and functionality

Once a complex management process is captured in standard process reference model form, it can be:

    * Implemented purposefully to achieve competitive advantage
    * Described unambiguously and communicated
    * Measured, managed, and controlled
    * Tuned and re-tuned to a specific purpose
