Here are some of the links posted over on the Process Cafe Espresso Shots this week1
It's time to define 'BPM' for a new era, just forget about the name for now - Theo at BPM:Redux talks about the rebirth that is needed for BPM. He gives persuasive arguments about the similarity to BPR which is inhibiting adoption as well as the ability of movements such as Social to break down silos. Well worth a read even if you disagree.
BPMN Tool Interoperability – Make Your Voice Heard! - Bruce Silver's comments about BPMN 2.0 and some of its gaps is quite an enlightening read. There's also an opportunity to help influence the future direction of the standard.
Are people losing interest in BPM? - Adam Deane at his excellent blog analyses some google search statistics to determine if people are, in fact, losing interest in BPM.
Lessons from a Process Project Failure - Eight lessons from Craig, The Process Ninja, on what went wrong in a recent project he was involved with. I recognise some of these from past experience. Do you? Any to add?
Coming next week "Bad Process Drivers - or Why banks suck at looking after their customers" They charge people fortunes, have usurious rates of interest and still lose economy-crippling amounts of money. How is this possible?
For those that celebrate I would like to wish my readers a Happy Easter. The Process Cafe will publish its next post on Easter Monday
