BPM: Goldilocks and the three bears

BPM GoldilocksOnce upon a time, there was a little girl named Goldilocks.
She went for a walk in the forest.
Pretty soon, she came upon a house. She knocked and, when no one answered, she walked right in.

On the table in the kitchen, there were three bowls of porridge, but Goldilocks wasn’t interested in the porridge, nor the IKEA chairs, nor the beds.

She went straight up to the computer room.
“This server’s security system is too hard!” she exclaimed.

So she checked out Mummy Bear’s server.
“This server is too slow,” she said.

Then she checked out the Baby Bear server.
“Ahhh, this server is just right,” she said happily and she started installing the software on it.

After she’d finished installing she decided to wait for the three bears, so she walked into an empty boardroom, put her feet up and started checking out her emails.

Just as she got to the last email, the three bears came home.

“Nobody’s been eating my porridge,” growled the Papa Bear.

“Nobody’s touched my porridge either” said the Mama bear. “What? My cooking is not good enough for them?”

“The chairs and beds are ok, but there is a light blinking on one of the servers!” reported Baby Bear.

The three bears rushed into the server room, but it was too late.
The software had already been installed. Another silo of information in the organisation.
“Confound it! That’s the seventh BPM system we’ve purchased” growled the Papa bear. “Why can’t the business users work with just one system?”. I’ll process their backside with my foot if they bypass us again!

Goldilocks got such a fright that she jumped up and ran all the way back to her office.

“Another consultant that we probably won’t hear from again” growled Papa bear.

“She should have tasted the porridge before she left” mumbled Mama bear.
I’m sure there’s nothing wrong with my cooking…
