Sailesh: That is merely wishful thinking. Why should outcome be the operative word?  What are the grounds for excluding processes? If you read it carefully it says "PROCESSES AND". 
Then an e-retail site can place a phone# on their Web page and tell PWD to call that # and place their orders ... The process is immaterial... they still get the outcome of ordering the product or service.
