Miscellaneous (8)

Dear Colleagues,

in the course of an ongoing research effort, I and some colleagues have recently started to empirically examine the reasons for involvement of end-users or domain-experts in business process modeling activities in their organizations (or the lack thereof).

As a first step towards this aim, we have designed a small questionnaire aiming at people involved in or responsible for an organization’s process management activities — both, in an internal role or as an external consultant. The questionnaire takes about 10-15 minutes to complete and is available at https://goo.gl/forms/N6FCYlYNyhaO6AWc2.

We would very much appreciate, if you could find the time to contribute to our study and/or forward the link to potentially interested people.

If you have any further questions regarding the study, you can reach me at stefan.oppl@jku.at.

Thank you,

Hi all,

Many of us know that "selling" the concept of process orientation is sometimes a tough business.

A recent survey of Paul Harmon suggests that BPM maturity in businesses is stagnating: "The state of BPM, as we defined it in 2005 is roughly the same today." (Source: http://www.bptrends.com/bpt/wp-content/uploads/2015-BPT-Survey-Report.pdf).

I am curious: Do you have a similar impression?

Best regards,
