Founding of the Process Management Alliance – An introducing video

To achieve our goal to offer an official platform for process management experts, we are proud to announce that we have finally founded and registered the Process Management Alliance. 🙂

This association will not only take over the Best Practice in Process Management activities to bring experts together and to identify and share best practices in process management but also to transfer this knowledge to the educational and social sector.

Invitation to the BPinPM.net Process Management Conference

About a year ago, we started our Best Practice in Process Management initiative by conducting the initial survey to identify interests in different areas of process management.

In the meantime, we’ve performed several workshops with process management experts from all kind of organizations to identify best practices in the most important areas.

Now, we are ready to share the results with the BPinPM.net community, to present examples, and to facilitate know-how exchange:

We are proud to invite you to the BPinPM.net Process Management Conference for German-speaking process management experts.

The conference will take place on Sep 21, 2012 at Lufthansa Training & Conference Center Seeheim in the area of Frankfurt.

Please visit the conference page to get more details and to register as participant!

 

 

We’ve decided to start with a local conference in Germany, but if enough non-German-speaking experts are interested, we will think about ways to share the conference content with the international BPinPM.net community or even to organize an international conference later on. Please feel free to contact the team.
