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.

Leading BPM. – Impressions of BPinPM.net Conference 2014

02_KeynoteBringing experts together, exchanging knowledge, and gaining new ideas from other business areas is the ongoing spirit of the BPinPM.net conferences. In November 2014, the third conference was held under the motto “Leading BPM” and we welcomed over 80 experts from diverse industry and business areas as well as the social sector in Lufthansa Training & Conference Center Seeheim in the area of Frankfurt.

Dr. Bernhard Krusche from the association “NEXT SOCIETY” started the conference with his thought-provoking keynote “Quo Vadis, BPM?”. He encouraged the audience to think outside the box and to be open-minded towards future trends like the digital age and its implications for personal life, business, and BPM. – As result of the discussion, we will pick up this topic in 2015 to further explore how BPM can prepare for the next society.

Leading BPM – Agenda of 2014 BPinPM.net Conference revealed!

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. Results are quite fascinating and will be presented on day two of the conference. Continue reading “Leading BPM – Agenda of 2014 BPinPM.net Conference revealed!”

First results in pushing ‘Digital Age BPM’ ahead!

digital_age_bpm_workshop_session1Good news: We found fearless BPM experts!

Two weeks ago, we met for the first session of our workshop series. After getting to know each other and understanding the process management systems in the different organizations, we started to familiarize ourselves with the possibilities of web 2.0 and social media in the context of BPM.

After dreaming and dreading what the future might hold for us, we began to design useful approaches of embedding social media in process management environments. The initial skepticism faded after we generated many applicable ideas – but was not washed away. Our main goal became manifested in one word: Benefit. Whatever we are going to design, the premise is the advantage the users are gaining by applying it. Continue reading “First results in pushing ‘Digital Age BPM’ ahead!”
