    ABOUT THIS SESSION:

    Since the advent of the industrial revolution individuals and organizations have been on a constant search to find ways to improve how work gets done. The quest for better business results has brought us many analysis, design and modeling techniques over time. The list started early with industrial engineering and quality management approaches. In the nineties an explosion happened when process centric methods such as re-engineering, TQM, Six Sigma, Lean and workflow analysis came along. Now we are seeing robust technologies and management disciplines that treat processes as assets to be managed in their own lifecycle. With processes becoming the basis for significant business transformation, organizational performance management and governance, now is the time for consistency of practices and communication about them. Our challenge as we are all trying to become process centric is that we still have no common semantic foundation for thinking or communicating among stakeholders about it. In order for process management to thrive we must get the rules of engagement straight. This session will suggest a common sense foundation for all business process work.

    • A little history not to be repeated
    • The structure of a rule (terms, facts and business rules)
    • The new common sense rules for business process articulation and BPM
    • Towards a manifesto
