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.

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.

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. So the founding is another step on our journey towards the improvement of process management which already started about ten years ago.

To introduce the Process Management Alliance we created a short video. Continue reading “Founding of the Process Management Alliance – An introducing video”

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.
