BPM Quotes of the week

On BPM Consultants – Lance Gibbs

It is not enough to be a good developer/technologist nor is it good enough to be a good business analyst. BPM is specialized and brings with it a whole new level of skill requirements. Are you considered truly excellent at what you have been doing and have those differentiating abilities mentioned? If so, then you will likely be able to enjoy a very rewarding career in BPM

On BPM and Politics – Jacob Ukelson

I suggest that we should have a separate branch of BPM that is Business Politics Management – it is the cousin of regular BPM, but for knowledge worker tasks. These tasks are very heavily dependent on collaboration, meetings, discussions, negotiation – and yes politics

On BPMN – Michael Rowley

However, I feel that the real argument with BPMN isn’t about the pictorial representation, but how well suited is the full icon set to business users. In my opinion, the only way for BPMN to be effective for a business user is to reduce the complexity and use a very small subset of BPMN (even smaller than the “core”).

On Social BPM – Chris Taylor

Everyone accepts that there’s great business benefit from supporting and capturing business process conversations but people are still trying to figure out how to take advantage of the combination of new technology and ’social comfort’ without creating cycnicism and chaos. Or worse…too much structure that kills creativity

On Social BPM – Ian Gotts

Collaboration is made easier (crossing geographical / time boundaries) with the right technology. But simply implementing a social tool in the enterprise (facebook, twitter, yammer) won’t help improve business processes sustainably across the business. It will simply allow subsets of people to “chat” about how they get around the lack of clearly documented processes

On BPM and EA – Wendy Werve

Organizations are looking to leverage enterprise architecture to develop a strong, detailed understanding of the operating model and supporting organization structures with clearly defined business rules and requirements. Adding a business process management layer to the mix allows you to actually apply and automate the business practice improvements defined during your modeling phase
