The Process Knowledge Initiative published a November update recently that had some interesting information about its structure and who the participants are. The core teams have been announced. Interestingly, the technical integration team will be working with “working groups” on specific areas.  The specific working groups haven’t been formed, but the structure to support them is in place. Quite a few people I know are involved in the effort – congratulations to the core team participants – looking forward to seeing more updates coming down the line.  The point is to have an open source repository of process knowledge, which could be of great benefit to the community as a whole. Note: Sandy Kemsley also has posted some information about the PKBoK technical team here. It looks like the next step is to put out a draft of the knowledge areas in January. Very good stuff and we’re looking forward to contributing however we can (and as much as we can make time for it).  I’m always amazed how much people will do for volunteer efforts like this, and the OMG OCEB specification.  There area lot of people truly dedicated to our BPM field – and while there might be a little bit of benefit to each person for participating, it is a tenuous link between contribution and financial gain, at best.  Bravo to the volunteers!
