BPM—Too Much BP, Not Enough of the M 

Derek Miers, Enix Consulting, United Kingdom

The problem with many BPM deployments is that they often overlook the reason why this technology is needed in the first place—to support the achievement of business objectives. The re-emergence of business processes as a core discipline in modern business management is fairly clear. But in order to really derive the maximum benefit from BPM initiatives, firms need to manage the people interface more carefully.

The Workflow Reference Model: 10 Years On (570kb PDF)

David Hollingsworth, Fujitsu Services, United Kingdom; Chair, Technical Committee, WfMC.

Last year saw the 10th anniversary of the Workflow Reference Model. This short paper reassesses the relevance of the Model in the current context of Business Process Management. It discusses the principles behind the Model, its strengths and weakness and examines how it remains relevant to the industry today. It concludes by introducing a number of considerations required to establish a “BPM Reference Model” and discusses how the various overlapping standards in this space may be categorised.
