We are very happy to invite you to the most comprehensive Best Practice in Process Management Conference ever! Meet us at Lufthansa Training & Conference Center and join the journey from Process Operation to Process Innovation.

It took more than a year to evaluate, to double-check, and to combine all workshop results to a new and holistic approach for sustainable process management.

But now, the ProcessInnovation8 is there and will guide us at the conference! :-)

The ProcessInnovation8 provides direction to BPM professionals and management throughout the phases Process Strategy, Process Enhancement, Process Implementation, Process Steering, and Process Innovation while keeping a special focus onto the human side of BPM to maximize acceptance and benefit of BPM.

To share our learnings, introduce practical examples, discuss latest BPM insights, experience the BPinPM.net community, enjoy the dinner, and, and, and…, we are looking forward to meet you in Seeheim! :-)

Please order your tickets now. Capacity is limited and the early bird tickets will be available for a short period of time only.

Please visit the conference site to access the agenda and to get all the details…

 

 

Again, this will be a local conference in Germany, but if enough non-German-speaking experts are interested, we will think about ways to share the know-how with the international BPinPM.net community as well. Please feel free to contact the team.

BPM Acceptance: Insights into our current BPM research

Business Process Standardization Research ModelIncreasing acceptance of BPM by employees and management of an organization is one of the core targets of our initiative. To build-up relevant knowledge, we are constantly performing various research activities.

With regards to acceptance of BPM, Janina Kettenbohrer presented her research about the impact of different job characteristics on employees’ attitude toward their job on the acceptance of standardized business processes. Together with Prof. Dr. Daniel Beimborn and Prof. Dr. Andreas Eckhardt, she could empirically show that two job characteristics – namely skill variety and autonomy – significantly influence acceptance of standardized business processes.

We survived the journey through the Innovation Helix

IMG_8247A few weeks ago, a group of fearless BPM experts took on a journey through the Innovation Helix guided by the innovation experts Prof. Sonja Zillner and Dr. Bernhard Krusche from Ignore Gravity.

As already introduced at the last BPinPM.net Conference in 2014, the Innovation Helix is a framework which provides road map and tools to create an innovation friendly environment and capabilities in organizations. As innovation can neither be reduced to a manageable process nor creativity purely, from a BPM perspective, we attempted to find first process-oriented solutions in this field of tension as we traveled along the three dimensions of the helix.

Insights from German flagship conference Wirtschaftsinformatik 2015

Last week, the BPinPM.net team visited the conference Wirtschaftsinformatik 2015 in Osnabrück. Topic of this year’s conference was Smart Enterprise Engineering.

In three days, several research and business tracks gave visitors insights in emerging trends of information systems. Furthermore, different companies (e.g., Thyssen Krupp or SAP) presented their next steps for achieving digitalized business.

For example, Thyssen Krupp wants to use Big Data and digitalization to revolutionize their elevator business. In the future, elevators won’t be travelling solely vertically but also horizontally. In the keynote, this video was shown. We found it very impressing and it fits very well to our scheduled innovation workshop “BPM meets the Innovation Helix“.

Invitation to “BPM meets the Innovation Helix” Workshop

„Quo Vadis, BPM?“ – This was already the title of the key note speech held by Dr. Bernhard Krusche at our recent BPinPM.net Process Management Conference and most of the conference participants agreed, that the challenges of the digital transformation of organizations will also challenge BPM.

Dr. Krusche’s idea to combine tools of successful innovation processes with structured BPM started a discussion on how this fusion of classical BPM and new innovation methodologies could look like.

Thus, we decided to set up a workshop to explore the “Innovation Helix” which was invented by Dr. Krusche and Prof. Sonja Zillner and match it with the BPM Life Cycle.

To learn more about this innovation workshop, please check the event details…

21-07-2014 22-09-19In a growing number of organizations, focus of BPM is moving towards leadership oriented topics to increase acceptance and benefit of process management systems. Basics like process modeling and compliance management are already quite mature and widely discussed. Thus, we are going to put the motto “Leading BPM” into reality and will pay attention to upcoming areas such as “real” BPM training (not system training) for employees and management, change management aspects, and activities to strengthen acceptance of BPM systems.

To facilitate these topics, we joined forces with BPM experts from business areas like engineering, finance, aerospace, social sector, and chemical industry to perform a number of workshops to identify best practices. Combined with latest insights from scientific world and practical examples, results of the workshops will be presented at the 2014 BPinPM.net Process Management Conference on Nov 24/25 at Lufthansa Training & Conference Center Seeheim in the area of Frankfurt, Germany.

In addition, we will focus on future-oriented BPM topics and present detailed results of our “Digital Age BPM” workshop series which we have performed in cooperation with digital leadership expert Willms Buhse and his doubleYUU team. In a group of five organizations from various sectors, we experimented with bringing BPM and digital age aspects such as social media, web 2.0, agile management, and mobile devices together.
