  • Architecting a Business Process Environment: Aligning BPM and EA

    by Sandy Kemsley

    How does business process management (BPM) fit into a more holistic enterprise architecture (EA) context? Although many BPM methodologies and tools suggest standards for process modeling such as BPMN, there are typically no guidelines for how to create process models that align with various EA frameworks and the other models that exist within them.

    This workshop is focused on how to align your BPM initiatives with your EA practices from a business and technology view, specifically in environments that change frequently due to continuous improvement efforts. This will include:
    - Creating process models using the Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN 2.0) standard.
    - Establishing usage guidelines for both business and technical BPMN models: what elements are required for different capability levels.
    - Where different levels of process models fit within EA frameworks.
    - Other interdependent model types within the EA framework: how process models interact with data models, organizational models and others.

    At 9:00am to 12:00pm, Monday 31st October

  • How Ready are You for BPM? - Assessing your Maturity and Building your Roadmap

    by Roger Burlton

    Becoming more mature is something that helps people deal with tricky unfamiliar situations in life and likewise organizations with new business issues. While it is true that some people never seem to grow up or learn, organizations cannot afford to remain adolescent when others around them are striving to manage better. Using a simple yet surprisingly reliable process maturity assessment that you can apply while in the conference session, you will estimate your current maturity level and assess the gap that you have to deal with going forward to the level of maturity you seek. Deciding what your organization should do about becoming more capable with process management will also require an understanding of its readiness to even aim for higher levels. Wanting to be the best does not mean you are ready for the changes that are needed to get there or that the timing is right. You may have to set interim targets for now and build a base from which to grow. The combination of your maturity gap and organizational readiness will establish the right roadmap for achieving what is desirable and possible. In the session we will:

    Walk through a CMMI – like maturity model for BPM
    Assess your current maturity
    Establish your maturity gap
    Determine your organizational readiness
    Review possible plans of attack and sample roadmaps for a variety of starting and ending points
