How we help BPM teams develop superpowers

by: Kees van Mansom

From October 30 - October 31, 2012 I will be at the Building Business Capabilities Conference in Fort Lauderdale in Florida to demonstrate how BPM teams can develop superpowers.

"What does this have to do with effective information?", I hear you think.

Well the truth is that information is in the core of every BPM solution. And that is exactly what I am going to demonstrate during this co-called 2-day challenge. Visitors of the conference can assume the role of stakeholder, business analyst, process specialist and perhaps even modeler and feed me with the information needed to get a super-effective, super-streamlined, super-documented BPM solution in a super-short time.

During these two days I will show how our tools and methodologies enable BPM teams to become super productive and overcome the frictions and inefficiencies of their current ways of working.

I will start with an almost empty workspace with just enough concepts to have a working application:

The picture above shows in the upper window the modeling perspective with a case called "Product request" and two activities, related to a registration object (blue) and a decision (orange). In the lower part of the picture you see the Target Operating Model for this business application, with two portals, one product, two cases and a registration. This minimal setup is enough for a working solution:

Based on YOUR input this will develop during the conference into a full blown model-driven business application.

You can follow the development of this model-driven business application on Twitter: hashtag #BPMsuperpowers.

Hope to welcome you at the Be Informed booth 102 on the Building Business Capabilities conference. Also see blog entry Working with requirements.
