I’ve been waiting for this moment for so long and now I’m missing the words. So, I leave it to Bruce Silver to advertise our book which you can pre-order now at Amazon.
The authors teach the key points of BPMN modeling using an unfolding business scenario, presented in an engaging dialogue between the modeler, process participants, and the CEO. By putting BPMN in a business context, the book will be of great value to those new to process modeling, especially business people who will be asked to contribute input, even though they are not actually doing the modeling.—Bruce Silver, Principal, Bruce Silver Associates.
We all hope that process models help to bridge the gap between business and IT. Especially BPMN seems to be a good candidate. However, this gap seems to be quite big and we still need to get a deeper understanding of the differences between a business view on process models and an IT view.
Therefore, we created a survey that will take approx. 20min of your time. Check out the questionnaire. Every participant can take part in a raffle for three copies of “The Process – Business Process Modeling using BPMN”, a soon to be published novel on BPMN. Of course, we will also send you the results of the survey.
An academic forum specifically targeted at BPMN research was missing so far. Good news: The first international workshop on BPMN will take place in beautiful Vienna in July this year.
