Class Notes: BPM Research and Education—Of Ivory Towers and Boundary Spanners
In his debut Column, Jan Recker lays the groundwork for future Columns by analyzing the results of the Delphi Study undertaken by his research group at Queensland University in 2010. The research was conducted among three groups—BPM academics, vendors of BPM software and consultancy services, and end user organizations involved in BPM. Each group prioritized its top ten process modeling challenges. The results differed significantly from group to group. Jan proposes two ways to deal with the contrasts among these groups. Read this compelling analysis for a thought-provoking perspective on BPM.
