BPM Quotes of the week

On Redefining BPM – Theo Priestley

it’s time to redefine BPM for this new era. But perhaps redefining is still too weak an option to take, what we need to do is examine what is happening in the industry and treat this as a completely new concept from scratch, start with the blank sheet and forget the legacy

On BPM and packaged applications – Clay Richardson

As BPM market consolidation continues, Forrester expects increased confusion as vendors put out marketing messages and positioning to capture the growing opportunity around Dynamic Business Management… Like Alice, process professionals will need to finally wake up to reality – the reality that packaged apps and BPM can coexist and work well together.

On BPM POCs – Dan Atwood

On Brain fitness corporate program – Claire Schooley

I’m convinced we will see brain fitness as a soft skill for employees in the corporate world. Everyone can use memory strategies to improve their work performance…

On the best April fools day prank – Theo Priestley

In a surprise move which sent shockwaves through the traditional BPM and BPA players, Excel has been voted ‘most adaptive BPM tool’ in Statler and Mason’s annual Tsunami Pentangle industry report.
