There’s a long way to go for BPM

Right, taraneon is back!

After my 6 months sabbatical (spent in fact supporting a rather prestigious client in unravelling a process and IT mystery that demanded 100% of my time and attention and left no room for anything else) I’m now getting back to matters at the heart of taraneon: Improving the way our clients deal with their processes.

And what better way is there than to start off this new chapter with a presentation at the Building Business Capabilities Conference 2012 in Fort Lauderdale. I’ll be talking about some of the results of our survey into process quality.  Anyone believing that BPM is a done deal, a low hanging fruit, an effort with high gains and no risks should drop in on my session on Day 1 because the participants in our survey tell a completely different story:

  • BPM projects running exceeding time and budget,
  • process design errors which remain undetected until they threaten the day to day operations of the company,
  • a workforce that remains in the dark about process changes,
  • the impact of process managers on projects …

If there’s one thing the survey tell us it’s that successful BPM is not about the tools but about the ability to organize.

I’m hoping to see many of you at the conference and I’m sure that we will have a lively discussion about the state of process quality.

Check out the conference website, it’s again a packed program with many great session taking place.


Slightly closer to home (at least it’s on the same continent) I’ll be speaking in Graz/Austria on Nov. 5th at an roundtable event organized by the Gesellschaft für Prozessmanagement.
