Dear BPTrends Member:

To our many readers who have an interest in the ongoing discussion of processes and capabilities—this issue of BPTrends is for you. Both Paul Harmon and Howard Smith weigh in on the discussion, Paul in his monthly Column, Harmon on BPM and Howard in his Article, Thinking Processes, Capabilities and Services. The topic is also covered in Mike Rosen’s Business Architecture Column, Abstraction in Business Architecture as well as in Roger Burlton’s Article, Real World Business Processes. Now that we have that topic amply covered, we are certain you will find useful and compelling content discussed in the entire issue and will share your comments with us on the BPTrends LinkedIn site.
