December 2015

Dear BPTrends Member:

Our December publication features reflections on the November BBC (Building Business Capabilities) Conference from both Paul Harmon and Peter Matthijssen—Paul on defining the similarities and differences in the roles of Business Process Practitioners and Business Analysts, and Peter on the need for greater collaboration among all process improvement practitioners. In Class Notes, Jan vom Brocke and his colleagues at the University of Lichtenstein present a compelling review of their research into what leads to successful BPM initiatives.

We hope 2015 has been a successful and fulfilling year for all of you. All of us at BPTrends send you, your friends and your family warm wishes for a Peaceful and Happy Holiday Season.

Carolyn Potts
