Holistic BPM is Coming of Age

Holistic BPM is Coming of Age
BPM is not only important within companies, but it is also a hot research topic at universities. In this short paper, Michael Rosemann, head of the BPM program at Queensland University of Technology, and his colleague Marlon Dumas, consider which aspects of BPM are most interesting to academics and researchers. At the same time, they consider how those topics will be addressed at BPM 2007, the premiere academic BPM conference scheduled this month in Brisbane, Australia.
