BPM Quotes of the week

On Aspirations for BPM – Scott Francis

Fair point that many people have or had bigger aspirations for BPM than what it has, to this point, delivered. But that kind of judgment of failure is very much in the eyes of the beholder. If we judge by other yardsticks, BPM could be judged a success. But let me just say, that success is no excuse for getting complacent. We should be striving for more with BPM – not less

On BPM initiatives – Clay Richardson

Most process professionals don’t have a good game plan for transitioning from departmental process projects to delivering large-scale process transformation. And others struggle to figure out which level of process maturity (i.e., which race) they should aim for with their BPM initiatives.

On BPM and Urgency – David Brakoniecki

In most projects I have been involved with excitement tends to be greatest on the first iteration. Ironically, real value is probably created during the subsequent iterations as a set of processes go through the iteration loop

In an ideal world, the negotiated commitment should be the essential unit of Agile BPM software solutions. The problem with most of the BPMS packages implementing BPM is that they are built on the “command and control” framework used for structured BPM in which orders are given and expected to be followed

On the state of BPM – Thomas J. Olbrich

Sometimes I feel that the state of BPM resembles the level of X-Factor candidates – all show and no substance. But then again, those are the days when I close my eyes and dream myself into that alternative universe where I start to speculate about a world with BPM.

On BPM Environments – Ashish Bhagwat

A BPM environment comes with the expectation (not just promise) that the implementation will be modeling driven, and the platform would have handled the technical nitty-gritty and kept them abstracted out for modelers and developers
