One-line description: How Business Process Management (BPM) Systems mix with agile techniques

Session format: Workshop (75 mins)

Abstract:Business processes are a key part of any commercial organization and for some they are their key differentiator. However, there is little focus in much software development iterature around encoding business process. Many software development languages and environments are not well suited to encoding or describing business process.
Why is BPMN (Business Process Management Notation) not as familiar to developers and designers as UML and ERD diagrams? Can you really let busines people loose on a BPM tool and get something you can develop from? What happens about the agile development process you have built up based on Java/C#/Ruby etc?
