Our very own Flournoy Henry recently contributed to a new IBM Redbook: "Scaling BPM Adoption from Project to Program with IBM Business Process Manager" :
Your first Business Process Management (BPM) project is a crucial first step on your BPM journey. It is important to begin this journey with a philosophy of change that will enable you to avoid common pitfalls that lead to failed BPM projects, and ultimately, poor BPM adoption. This IBM? Redbooks? publication describes the methodology and best practices that lead to a successful project and how to use that success to scale to enterprise-wide BPM adoption.
The intended audience for this book includes all people who participate in the discovery, planning, delivery, deployment, and continuous improvement activities for a business process. These roles include process owners, process participants and subject matter experts (SMEs) from the operational business as well as technologists responsible for delivery including BPM analysts, BPM solution architects, BPM administrators, and BPM developers.
PDF and HTML versions are available (I recommend PDF version, it is just easier to read because some of the sections are short but flow well together).
This is just part of our (and Flournoy's) commitment to give back to the BPM community we are a part of.? But it wouldn't be possible without some of the folks at IBM organizing and bringing a group of experts together to do it.? Congrats to Flournoy, Lisa, Ines, Fahad, Wim, Jonas, and Duan for producing this (RedBooks are team effort).? Hopefully we'll be able to participate in more Redbooks in the BPM space in the future.
