On September 21th 2012, the BPinPM.net initiative welcomed 80 process management experts to the first BPinPM.net Process Management Conference in the Lufthansa Training & Conference Center Seeheim.
To get started, Prof. Dr. Tim Weitzel from Otto-Friedrich-University of Bamberg presented a key note depicting severe impacts of inaccurate IT project management.
Structured into the four topics of process modeling, integration of normative and legislative requirements, organization-wide defined process model, and process management roles, nine exciting and informative lectures followed.

By now, we received 154 feedbacks from participants with different backgrounds such as engineering, aviation and IT with positions as head of department or director. Most participants are from Germany, Austria and Switzerland, but also 19 international participants from other countries took part.
An interesting fact is that 40 % of the participants are involved in process management for more than 9 years.
They were able to gain a lot of experience they also like to share because more than 100 participants are interested in being part of a workshop.
The different aspects concerning process management were rated with an increasing importance, especially the “acceptance of process management within the organization”.

After participating in the first BPMCon in Berlin last Friday, I would like to share my impressions and summarize my key learning.
The conference was opened by a provoking key note speech by Gerhard Wohland about “Dynamic-robust process design”. He explained his theory of blue (dead) and red (alive) areas in processes and this learning accompanied us throughout the day. Blue activities are formal and can be described by processes, red activities need talents to be processed. At Lufthansa Technik, we call this “good workmanship”. 😉 For more information about this topic, please visit Gerhard Wohland’s website (only available in German).
My second key learning was the delimitation of the business-related areas of BPM (modeling of processes) and the technical part of BPM which can be supported by process engines or conventional IT systems. Up to now, we are focused on the business-oriented part at Lufthansa Technik, but I am really interested in learning more about how to support processes by process engines based on BPMN modeled processes. This definition of BPM is visualized in the camunda BPMN-Framework (again, only available in German). By the way: Our survey is also focused on the business-related part of BPM. 🙂
Finally, I can state that I am a big fan of Pecha Kucha, now! 20 slides in 6 minutes and 40 seconds, 20 seconds for every slide only. Information on the point. Entertaining for the audience and a real challenge for the presenter. But all of us presenters mastered this challenge and gave their presentations without time difficulties. Now, I am looking forward to the next chance for giving a Pecha Kucha presentation because I would like to improve my presentation with the lessons I learned on Friday. – I am thinking about integrating Pecha Kucha into our Best Practice in Process Management workshops. 😉
On September 9, we will be present at BPMCon 2011 in Berlin. Beside presentations and workshops about BPMN 2.0, Agile BPM, Activity 5, and future of BPM the agenda offers a number of Pecha Kucha presentations. – And one of these presentations will be about “Process Management at Lufthansa Technik”.
I just finalized the slides and I am very excited about presenting Lufthansa Technik’s process management approach on 20 slides within 6 minutes and 40 seconds. – This is 20 seconds per slide.
Among other information, the presentation will cover details about IQ MOVE, our process-oriented management system, as well as JoinIN!, our methodology to develop and implement standardized processes which was developed in cooperation with University of Bamberg.

We would like to invite you to take part in our survey „Best Practice in Process Management“ which was generated in cooperation between Department of Information Systems at Otto-Friedrich University of Bamberg of Professor Dr. Tim Weitzel and the Process Management Team of Lufthansa Technik Group.
By performing this survey, we would like to create an overview about the interests in key aspects of process management and to assemble the contact persons of the particular topics to organize workshops for best practice identification and to facilitate exchange of experiences of process management experts.
Since summer 2010, University of Bamberg and Lufthansa Technik AG are collaborating in a business process standardization project and together, we developed a methodology for the development, implementation, and operations of Lufthansa Technik Group-wide standardized processes.
With this initiative we would like to start a discussion about process management and we would like to exchange our experience with other experts, to develop best practices for all of us.
We are looking forward to your answers till September 30, 2011. Completing the questionnaire will take about 10 minutes.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have further questions.
Thank you very much and best regards from Best Practice in Process Management Team!
Our domain is registered, the blog is online and the survey will start next week. Thus, we are ready for take off to develop Best Practice in Process Management.
Our mission is to bring the process management experts of different companies and organizations around the world together to discuss process management issues and to exchange our experience.
BPinPM.net is a cooperation of process management experts from University of Bamberg and Lufthansa Technik AG.
