On BPM and Continuous Improvement – Craig Reid
If anyone is in doubt as to why improvement has to be continuous, the simple explanation is that stupid stuff happens all the time: mistakes are made, things are rushed, ideas badly conceived, ideas even more badly executed and then there are those people things – they keep making mistakes because for some unknown reason they aren’t perfect
On BPM Careers – David McCoy
All Process Problems are now Fixed! Millions of “Process Experts” to be Unemployed!
On BPM and EA – Laura Mooney
BPM teams are responsible for driving strategy for process transformation and EA teams are responsible for driving strategy for IT investments. One major problem is that the teams do not see the value in the others’ goals and purpose.

On Enterprise Architecture – Chris Lockhart
On blogs and twitter feeds across the interwebs, battle lines seem to be forming over whether EA is dead or finally found to be an inarticulate term and therefore needs to be burned down and built up from scratch again.

On BPM Hype – Scott Francis
Having been in BPM, and remembering how many times a break-out year was predicted… I prefer not to make these kinds of predictions. BPM has been a steady grower, however, which may actually be more appropriate for enterprise technology- giving technology time to catch up to some of the hype
On Perceptions – Max J. Pucher
Project planning as well as business processes have to consider and support the irrational heuristics of perceptions, choices and decisionmaking. People simply aren’t logical, they are human!
On Process Models Platform – Girish Kukreja
I believe there is just a need of platform for people to start modeling processes and let it mature the Social / Collaboration way. Soon we will see process models platform on Wikipedia , Google . The operating model will be similar to all open source forums
On BPM Parlaying – Neil Ward-Dutton
For me, the health of a handful of “independent” infrastructure software players is a good sign for industry at large, because it maintains a level of industry choice that just wouldn’t be there if the market collapsed down to the usual behemoths.
