Google gets workflow wings with KiSSFLOW. Can they democratize BPM?

An April Fool’s joke from last year, my post on Google entering BPM with Noodle, continues to get views every day.

Google leapfrogs into BPM with Noodle!

Case v/s Process – Not about Architecture & Tools, It’s Culture

There are tools that have capability to do Process Management in structured manner, and there are tools with capability to perform dynamic case management. What you need depends on how you want to treat the situations and incidents. You want Case Management culture or Process Management culture – that’s the key.

Will Social Networking Wave Wash Away Centers of Excellence?

Theo Priestly brought up a stirring point and claimed that social wave while removing silos will also bring the extinction of the COEs. Well, I disagree. In this post I cover the premise of BPM COE, and the the reasons I do not believe that BPM COEs could get washed away with the social wave.

Defining BPM and State thereof – The Perspectives at Play

With so many perspectives at play and with BPM community comprising multiple sub-communities with heterogeneous views, it is darn too difficult to define BPM that covers all the aspects and still satisfies everyone.

This is correct, however, IMO, Social is a Phenomenon and not a discipline. What should remain – when we are done with this phenomenon – is the set of disciplines that are better placed to collaborate and synergize toward customer centricity.
