BPM Quotes of the week

On the border between EA and BPMS tools – Anatoly Belychook

Every business analyst should obey the red line: never use EA tools to model business process internals if BPMS is present.

On EPC-BPMN flamewars – Sebastian Stein

If a BPMN lover says “BPMN is more expressive than EPC”, we actually have to ask “concerning which dimensions”? But people usually don’t do that and that’s how flamewars start…

On BPM as an art form – Tom Allanson

Ultimately, it’s not the number of processes you’ve automated that puts you in touch with your customers. It’s how well you can visualize what your customers want

On the differences between workflow and BPM – Janelle Hill

After almost 10 years of steady growth and increased experience with BPM disciplines and technologies, it still amazes me that so many (too many!) IT professionals still think “BPM” is just another name for workflow. (As if the term “workflow” is well understood! NOT!)

On the future of BPM – Theo Priestley

Now include the ability to allow a combination of on-the-fly changes to process by people and system driven probabilistic or deterministic behaviour and rerouting (after many instances have been captured), add in that necessary feedback loop in order to track and continually update how the process operates and you begin to have the beginnings of some form of self-aware or real process intelligence.

On too much stuff – Dan Atwood

While I’m a fan of having a single BPM Object instance variable store the work item instance’s information throughout the life of the process, having this object store everything including a Swiss army knife is going a bit overboard.

On Pattern-Based Strategy – Carole-Ann

I was amazed by the fact the room was so packed that we had to turn people away, and some had to sit on the floor inside the room! Keep in mind that the audience is about 30% CIO… sitting on the floor… Must have been a topic they really cared about!

On the forces behind BPM – Jim Sinur

BPM is starting to take advantage of its flexibility in new ways. BPM is shifting from “Doing by Design” to “Design by Doing” in its efforts to reach the knowledge worker

On BPM Offshoring – Scott Francis

when off-shoring, work with firms that do BPM deployments locally, for local market customers. The adjustments they have to make to do a remote-BPM project are less-severe than the adjustments technical staff have to make from traditional IT projects to BPM projects

On Predictability, Practicality and Passion – Tom Shepherd

Where passion goes wrong is when belief in a singular concept or approach drives people to close their eyes to alternatives. I say this not thinking about process improvement alone, but also about life in general.
