Best Management Practices (BMPs) are those practices determined to be the most efficient, practical, and cost-effective measures identified to guide a particular activity or to address a particular problem.
Best practices are often set forth by an authority, such as a governing body or management, depending on the circumstances. While best practices generally dictate the recommended course of action, some situations require that such practices be followed.
One important range of best management practices have been developed in the UK by the UK Government (now owned by Axelos Ltd) and others by worldwide recognised organizations such as the Project Management Institute (PMI), IPMA and APM. The products present flexible, practical and effective guidance, drawn from a range of the most successful global business experiences. Distilled to its essential elements, the guidance can then be applied to every sort of business and organisation. The products have helped improve processes and operations for organisations of all sizes - including small businesses, public sector organisations and major global enterprises.
