S-BPM (9)

New BPM book ...

There is a new book with the interesting title "Hagenberg Business Process Modelling Method". So, there is no universal methodology, but one that works in Hagenberg (just a joke) - nevertheless, there is also a "Grazer Ansatz" developed at the TU Graz (no joke).

There is a chapter inside with the title "An Enhanced Communication Concept"; as I do not have the book yet - let's do some googling: "An Enhanced Communication Concept for Business Processes" from the same author gives some insight.

"The event pools of S-BPM [Fl12] provided inspiration for the pool concept introduced here. The pools of S-BPM are tailored for actor comfort, but are not embedded in a wider delivery concept. S-BPM provides some extra “configuration parameters” for input pools, whose most important application appears to be the enforcement of synchronous communication, which is handled differently in our more general concept."

Your opinion?

I recently received a reviewer's comments on an S-BPM related paper that I would like to share.

The reviewer criticised that the terminology used in most S-BPM related papers is too specific for the general BPM community. He/she also suggested that when describing the S-BPM approach we should position it more closely among other approaches to BPM. Specifically the reviewer suggested Role-Activity Diagrams and UML collaboration diagrams as related approaches.

I think these comments are fair enough, and especially useful for S-BPM folks who want to reach a wider audience. What are your views about this? Have you had similar feedback? How can we be more successful in getting our message across?
