Business Process Management is a rather new concept in management that promises many advantages to the organizations. Implementation of this concept similar to the other management techniques needs to consider different factors. One of the factors that its importance has been mentioned in many research, is "culture". Despite of many research that have mentioned this factor as an important success factors, there are few research that consider the way that culture affects on BPM implementation. In this study a survey has been conducted between BPM experts to find the ways that culture affects on BPM implementation.
